Walter E. Johnson (firstname.lastname@example.org) is Senior Advisor at Compliance Strategists LLC, specializing in compliance, ethics, risk and governance.
As we approach the final quarter of this year, many of our fellow members are pondering the best approach for contributing to the upcoming activities of the Society of Corporate Compliance and Ethics (SCCE). If we consider the paths of pursuing a compliance career, no path is the same. Some have entered by way of internal auditor or federal prosecutor. Others have entered by way of accountant, nurse, hospital administrator, quality manager, or marketing professional. The approaches vary for entering our profession, and likewise, the approaches to contributing to SCCE also vary.
