16th Annual IAdCA Conference

Omni Scottsdale Resort & Spa at Montelucia     Scottsdale, AZ

IAdCA is an organization that’s near and dear to my heart because it’s an organization that focuses exclusively on advertising compliance for insurance compliance professionals. And next week I’ll be on my way to their annual conference at the gorgeous Omni Scottsdale Resort & Spa in Scottsdale, AZ.

When I first started with ad review, IAdCA was like a beacon of light where I could meet like-minded people and learn from those that had experience in this specific area. Don’t get me wrong, there are other great organizations for insurance compliance professionals, but to have an event solely focused on advertising compliance really makes IAdCA unique!

Over the years, I’ve had the opportunity to participate as a speaker, a volunteer on the education and planning committees, and now as a board member.

Another reason IAdCA is so great? A lot of thought that goes into the program and how to provide exceptional value for attendees. This year, I’ll be speaking on two important topics – both of which I would want to learn about from an attendee perspective. Here’s what I’ll be jamming on:

Effective Compliance Communications

In this session, we’ll be covering top tips to facilitate discussions around advertising compliance issues. It’s one thing to have substantive knowledge of what the issues, rules, and regulations are. Getting buy-in from others around what changes need to be made, and why, is a vital piece of the puzzle. We’re providing practical tips that can be implemented immediately to foster connections and improve buy-in for compliance needs.

Stories from the Trenches    

No one wants to learn the hard way – fines, sanctions, consent orders. This session covers common themes that have come up in market conduct exams and consent orders directly related to advertising. I’ll be discussing specific takeaways for each of the real-life stories so that companies don’t have to wait until it’s too late to address an issue.

I’m looking forward to this event, the sunshine, and meeting up with industry colleagues. Will we see you there?
