Adam Turteltaub and I go off to see people in our profession a few times a year. They are always interesting trips with a wide spectrum of meetings and topics. The goal is to help the profession and our organization. I thought I would share what one of those weeks look like. Last week went something like this….
We traveled to the Global Ethics Summit in NYC and sat in a booth for a couple of days. We saw some SCCE members and met people considering membership or certification. I spoke at the NY Regional Office of the Center for Medicare and Medicaid services. They were interested in finding more about our organization and certification. I met with Alison Taylor Director, Energy and Extractives at BSR (Business for Social Responsibility) and discussed ways our two organizations could work together. CSR/Sustainability efforts have interesting interconnections. Adam Turteltaub and I then went to Philly and saw Joe Murphy’s office, home town of Haddonfield and museum quality collection of presidential campaign memorabilia. We then went to DC and met with Dulce A. Zahniser, Managing Director, Towpath Group International, LLC an expert in export controls compliance who may be getting more involved in our organization and bring greater expertise to our membership. We stopped by and met with our former Board member Mike Horowitz who is now the IG of the DOJ. In all my travels I have to say Michael is one of the most impressive professionals I have ever met. We met with longtime colleague Ronnie Kann, Senior Executive at the Corporate Executive Board (CEB) about projects we may work together on in the future. And we met with Kelly Welsh, the General Counsel at the Department of Commerce, and his team. He will be one of the general sessions speakers at the Compliance and Ethics Institute. I finished up speaking on Friday at a local HCCA conference. It was great to spend time with our members.
