Message from the Chair

Thank you for visiting the Compliance & Ethics webpage! 

As a compliance and ethics professional, you play a critical role in helping to detect and prevent misconduct in your organization.  The Compliance & Ethics Committee (“CEC”) is committed to providing you with opportunities that will help you to grow and become more effective in fulfilling this function.  For example:

· With more than 6,500 members, the CEC offers you the ability to connect with other compliance professionals to benchmark your program or discuss best practices – whether online, over the phone, or in person at the ACC Annual Meeting. 

·  In conjunction with our sponsor, Womble, Carlyle, Sandridge & Rice, LLC, the CEC presents a Legal Quick Hit (“LQH”) during each of its monthly business meetings. Each LQH is about 20-45 minutes in length and addresses a hot topic impacting our organizations, thereby enabling you to stay up-to-date and informed with a minimal amount of time or effort. 

· You may gain recognition in the compliance and ethics community through speaking opportunities, or by publishing articles in the ACC Docket.
