SCCE Introduces Journalism Award
Earlier this year, the SCCE established its Journalism Award to honor and recognize a journalist who shows insight into the compliance and ethics field, and who promotes public and governmental recognition of the field and/or the value of compliance and ethics programs.

"Mr. Weber's article certainly encapsulates the purpose and intent of the SCCE Journalism Award," said Roy Snell, CEO, SCCE. The article, "The New Ethics Enforcers", spotlights the important and vital role Compliance and Ethics Officers can play in corporate America.

"The Compliance and Ethics Officer is the newest C-level executive in today’s modern corporation," explained Snell.The corporate compliance officer position is now found in almost every industry, in public and private companies, and in nonprofit organizations. Corporate compliance professionals and ethics and business conduct professionals generally are responsible for developing and overseeing corporate compliance and ethics programs to ensure their organization's compliance with laws and regulations governing their industry.
