MINNEAPOLIS, July 25, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- The 14th Annual International Compliance & Ethics Awards will be presented to recipients at the 2018 Compliance & Ethics Institute. Hosted by the Society of Corporate Compliance & Ethics (SCCE), the event will be held October 21-24, 2018 in Las Vegas.
Since first presented in 2005, the International Compliance & Ethics Awards have been bestowed on colleagues and peers for their tireless efforts in furthering the compliance and ethics profession. The awards recognize those who have made a significant contribution to this growing field. Representatives from SCCE and the Health Care Compliance Association (HCCA) select the award recipients.
"So often the work of compliance and ethics professionals goes unrecognized," said SCCE/HCCA incoming CEO Gerry Zack. "Each year these awards help us emphatically change that by stopping to pay tribute to those who have made a significant contribution to the profession. The awards both vividly demonstrate the progress compliance has made and provide an opportunity for those who have done so much to enjoy the appreciation of their peers."
