2017 ECI Annual Conference

Content provided by the Ethics & Compliance Association (ECA), the membership community of ECI.

Innovation does not happen in a vacuum, but through dialogue. ECI offers a suite of events designed to equip your E&C team to improve your program. Through our events, you and your program staff will not only gain exposure to new and emerging issues through research; you will transform that research into practice through peer-to-peer networking and idea exchange. ECI events are limited in size because discourse is better when every voice can be heard.


    April 13 - May 25, 2017

    Elevating Ethics & Compliance provides in-depth, online and classroom-style training focused on developing leaders in our industry. This is not a program on fundamentals, it is a deep-dive into how to lead, evaluate and sustain high quality ethics and compliance programs.

    Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center, National Harbor, MD

    Incentivizing Ethical Conduct It’s the element of an E&C program that is the hardest to implement. What are the “appropriate incentives” that encourage employees to uphold your values and standards? During their summer meeting, the Fellows will delve into the science of motivation and ways to develop “the carrots” that encourage ethical conduct.

    Who should attend? Senior-level practitioners. Participation limited to Fellows, Senior Fellows, and Leadership Fellows.

    Loews Chicago O’Hare Rosemont (Chicago), IL

    Creating a Speak Up/Listen Up Culture Employee willingness to raise concerns is one of the most essential – and the most fragile – elements of your E&C program. It hinges on your success in establishing both a “speak up” and a “listen up” culture in your organization. The Fall BPF will focus on creating an environment where employees are encouraged and valued when they report suspected wrongdoing. Learn about best practices in management training and support; systems and incentives to foster speaking up; and ways to prevent retaliation.

    Who should attend? Mid-level practitioners.
    Members receive discounted registration.
