Compliance Officer Day is a global event celebrated every September 26 to recognize the professionals who have dedicated their careers to the field of ethics and compliance and shine a spotlight on the role they play in organizations.

SAI Global’s mission for #ComplianceOfficerDay 2018 is to celebrate the work being done by this community around the world, and create new connections among ethics and compliance professionals so you can collaborate to advance confidently when facing the challenges of your role.


Visit this page on September 26, 2018, for access to new resource and tools to help you celebrate. 

On September 26, join us for a free CCB CEU eligible webinar called ‘The Characteristics and Challenges of a Modern Ethics and Compliance Officer.’

This hour-long roundtable discussion and Q&A features Seth Rice, Global Director of E&C, AGC, and CCEP at Kennametal Inc, Alison Taylor, Managing Director at Business for Social Responsibility, and Caterina Bulgeralla, Ethics and Culture Expert and Organizational Psychology Professor at NYU.

It will be recorded, so even if you can’t attend, sign up to receive the video and be eligible for non-live CCB CEUs.

Last year, we saw the inaugural National Compliance Officer Day, an effort spearheaded by SAI Global, but with the intent for it to become a much bigger and broader thing than something affiliated with any one company. I was glad to write about the effort last year, as I strongly support the cause here: To celebrate the unique burden carried by compliance officers, as well as the indispensable value that compliance officers deliver to their organizations by driving legal, ethical, honest and sustainable business practices.
