Compliance Officers Roundtable Overview

GHA has an active compliance officers group that meets quarterly; usually at GHA. Over the past few years, the Compliance Officers’ Roundtable has grown and has become a very cost-efficient way to educate compliance officers through presentations from government representatives, industry experts and other speakers, videos and written information on various compliance-related issues.
Member CEOs are encouraged to make sure that their compliance officer and his/her staff participate either in person or via Telnet in these compliance roundtable meetings because important information is exchanged and these events are an essential communication vehicle.
GHA’s Compliance Officers Roundtable customarily meets three (3) times per year at GHA beginning at 10:00 a.m. and ending by 2:30 p.m. Lunch is served and a nominal fee is charged to cover costs associated with the luncheon and other meeting set-up expenses. An additional meeting is usually held offsite at various “resort” locations around the state. The program provides education and includes opportunities for members to network with each other in an informal atmosphere.
