Yes, whoever said that the conference rooms are cold was definitely being transparent and honest! Tomorrow is the last day of the conference and I am excited to receive an HCCA sweatshirt!
Now, to discuss the conference. Rules, regulations, experiences…these are the themes of most of the topics. My two favorite topics thus far though have been about newbies and habits of an effective compliance and ethics professional! It’s ok to be a newbie. We all are newbies at some level. The main reason that I enjoyed this speaker was the way he delivered his presentation with humor and allowing us to participate in his thoughts. I also enjoyed the Seven Habits of an Effective Compliance and Ethics Professional. I really enjoyed the connections that he made between compliance and real life. The discussion about culture and the ways that we all view different topics differently hit home with me. He speaks the truth and gave me a better understanding of how I might be able to effect change in my organization! For this, I am grateful! Thank you HCCA for a great conference!!
