As a compliance officer, I depend on each year's Compliance Institute as my time away from the office to refresh, refocus, and reenergize.
Melissa Blihar I've attended 2-5 times
My take away from 2015 CI I left the Compliance Institute terrified of all the requirements I didn't know and energized by new ideas to make my organization a better place.

Marciell Lynn Reichler I've attended 2-5 times
This conference is packed with a variety of information that is very helpful in my position. I only wish I could clone myself to attend every session. I especially enjoyed the guest speakers on day one and two of the conference. The conference coordinators seem to have their hand on the pulse of what is an emerging issue or need.
Mary Craig I've attended 2-5 times
Phenomenal value! Where else can you network with colleagues, meet with vendors, hear from industry experts, government agencies, & subject matter experts ...all in one venue? Real examples with proven solutions. You can choose one track of study or attend sessions among various topics. The choice is yours. I always leave the conference invigorated and re-committed to my compliance profession. I can't say enough about the rewards of attending. Looking forward to the next one!
Tiffany Miller-Kennedy I've attended 2-5 times
The conference was informative and packed with loads of information and great people. Hope we can continue to dig deep with some of the topics in 2016!
Judy Heimann I've attended 11-19 times
I do not know how you are able to make this better every year, but you do! I would hate to ever miss this Institute as I learn so much and connect with others in ways I cannot in my workplace.
Michelle Andrian I've attended 2-5 times
The Conference is a great asset for the compliance professional. It provides a tremendous amount of information and access to resources. We only wish that HCCA would consider holding an Academy in Hawaii. Maybe someday!!
Tomi Hagan I've attended 2-5 times
The 2015 Compliance Institute far exceeded my expectations. My first year, I was a bit overwhelmed. This year, I was able to take advantage of the many networking opportunities and learn even more. In several sessions, the Q & A at the end was just as valauble as the presentation itself. I came back from the CI energized and excited to implement new ideas.
Lilia 1st Time Attendee
I enjoyed the conference very much. I enjoyed the preconferences. I also like the app. As well as the wealth of information presented on all the various topics that encompass compliance. the handouts were extremely helpful as do not have to reinvent the wheel. Though the rooms were really cold.

Love the networking, the tremendous array of presentations and the battery recharge that I get each year from attending the CI.
Kathie Hopkins 1st Time Attendee
I was a first time attendee and new to the role of compliance. I was a Risk Manager for over 10 years and have transitioned into this new role. I received so much valuable information that will provide me with some "building blocks" as I continue my transition and learning of my new role.
Amanda Agins-Tzanov 1st Time Attendee
I learned so much during my first time at the institute. The knowledge I gained will help me be a better and more effective Compliance Professional. I'm excited about my career path again.
Natalie Bulger 1st Time Attendee
When you feel like you are overwhelmed, struggling to remember why it is you entered the field of Compliance in the first place or trying to rediscover a path to focus on for your organization, the Compliance Institute and the presenters, staff, exhibitors, and other attendees/colleagues will help you remember and find your way again.
Venjie Largoza I've attended 6-10 times
As usual, this is the nationally conference to attend for those working in healthcare compliance. Sharing knowledge and experience gives me stronger confidence in that I am doing the right thing for my entity. Networking is KEY and this is the forum for it!
Suzanne Kitelinger 1st Time Attendee
The conference was excellent and the speakers were very knowledgeable & entertaining.
Donna L. Gosselin 1st Time Attendee
As a first time attendee, I gained so much through my attendance at the Compliance Institute. The most valuable is the networking of Compliance Professionals, peers with knowledge and experience of the work I conduct day in and day out! Speed networking was an amazing experience!! Sharing of information, sharing of contact information, dialogue with peers ... the energy in the room was uplifting and a great way to start the entire experience. I will be booking my room shortly for next years institute!
Teresa Thomas 1st Time Attendee

The opportunity to face to face with peers and discuss their experience is invaluable. I have built great professional working relationships through the networking at the Compliance Institute.

Simply an amazing,exhilarating experience learning from professionals on the cutting edge of compliance. Speed Networking and Speed Mentoring were fantastic. It was a great opportunities to build relationships and learn from those already established in the industry. Can't wait for CI 2016! It should be the biggest ever celebrating 20 years of CI!!
Fran Sorrell I've attended 2-5 times
The Compliance Institute is true 'one stop shopping' for information for Compliance and Privacy Professionals. I cannot attend any other conference and meeting and have so many focused education options for specific learning. Mixing and matching, networking and sharing make a very good learning experience and it is constructive time spent.
Renita Bean I've attended 2-5 times
The Compliance Institute was AMAZING! I went last year and did not think it could get much better, I was wrong. I plan to be back next year.

I always walk away from the compliance institute with 2-3 ideas or tidbits of information that I can bring back to my organization.
Doreen Carter I've attended 6-10 times

Allison Pullins I've attended 2-5 times
HCCA's Compliance Institute is simply the best place to network with other compliance and legal professionals, as well as learn best practices from peers and leaders. I am able to connect with old friends, as well as make new ones. Though I admit the conference schedule is rather intense, I am glad that HCCA packs in great educational sessions and break outs for our continued learning. Another job well done!
Steve Hohenshilt I've attended 2-5 times
CI does a very good job at breaking down the healthcare compliance and privacy industry so that programs and ideas are easier to understand, design and implement, while at the same time never letting you forget how complex and sophisticated privacy and compliance really are.
Colette Jackson I've attended 2-5 times
Always great information to take back to the entire organization!
Caroline Whitlock I've attended 2-5 times

It is a great to have access to so many experts in the field and to talk with them one on one. The resources that the conference provides to us is invaluable. I always take home ideas that I learned from these experts for improving our privacy program. Thank you for this opportunity!
Beverly Welshans 1st Time Attendee
Great conference! The variety of session topics offered opportunities to fine tune familiar subject areas and gain insights into new ones.
Karyn Fryer I've attended 2-5 times
What a great conference. There was a wide array of valuable information. Teh Advance Discussion Groups were by far the best! So much interaction among the participants.
Darlene J. Palewitz I've attended 2-5 times
I was pleasantly overwhelmed by the tremendous amount of useful information that was provided at this year's Compliance Institute! Energy level was great. Looking forward to 2016!! HCCA staff, you are an amazingly dedicated group and run a well oiled machine!!

Absolutely the best one for me!
Shani Newell I've attended 2-5 times
Another wonderful HCCA experience! The Compliance Institute is the place to be!! The HCCA Mobile App kept me informed and organized. The presentations were informative and interesting (especially the Ethics General Session). See you next year in Vegas!
D. Gabrielle Reeves 1st Time Attendee
This conference was informative, had some amazing speakers, and the general presentations were incredible. It was amazingly well put together considering we had close to 3,000 attendees. The only change I would ask is more tables for the dining portions; however, the food was delicious!
john finley I've attended 2-5 times
The conference is well run. I love the variety of courses. However, I think the conference is great for junior compliance professionals, would like to see more senior-level discussions/breakouts. ps--let's not go back to that venue. I vote for San Diego again or a different Disney hotel.
Amanda Tillitt I've attended 2-5 times
Great conference to attend to get information surrounding every aspect of compliance in the health care field. Great networking opportunities and having the sessions available through an app on your mobile device makes it even better. All the speakers are willing to share contact info for any private follow up questions you may have. Great resources!
Beth H. Anderson 1st Time Attendee
HCCA did a great job of providing fantastic speakers to give us the most up-to-date information in the compliance industry. The hotel accomadations were great and I was able to network with other more experienced compliance and privacy officers to help me on my way to being a CHPC!
Eric Gill 1st Time Attendee
HealthDox has been coming to HCCA for at least seven years. However, this was my first trip! It was extremely exciting to meet other Healthcare professionals where I could make valuable networking transactions and listen to phenomenal speakers in the break-out sessions. All speakers were loud, clear and informative about relevant topics. The convention center was nice and very easily navigable. If I had an issue, there was plenty of help for me. HCCA employees were attentive. I will be back!
Karen Geller I've attended 2-5 times
Great conference. The venue was exciting and fun. It was great to hear from such distinguished, experienced speakers. I learned a good deal and look forward to more.
Jim Parks I've attended 2-5 times
Speakers are really good, for the most part, and the AP is awesome. My biggest "peeve" is the lack of eating space at the breakfasts in the vendor hall. I understand that you want a lot of socializing/networking with the vendors, but with a plateful of food in one hand and coffee in the other, it's not very conducive. Accommodations are always top notch and the rooms are very nice. I really like the round tables at the front.
Michael P. McKeever, CPA, CHC, CHRC I've attended 6-10 times
I've been working in the compliance arena on and off since 1995, and continually find the HCCA Compliance Institute to be an excellent venue for cutting edge discussions, continuing education and excellent networking opportunities. I'm looking forward to next year's "meeting of the compliance minds" in Las Vegas. To the HCCA Conference Staff, keep up the good work!
Robert Kay I've attended 2-5 times
This is the "one-stop shop" for annual compliance education; great speakers, pertinent topics and great networking... as well as reuniting with old friends.

Nothing can beat the Compliance Institute for up to date information, best practices and networking opportunities! It is the best for any and all compliance professionals; whether new to the profession or being a seasoned professional. Try it out. You will be satisfied with the experience.

Impressive. I either learned something new or enhanced my knowledge base during every breakout sessions I attended.
Gail Peace I've attended 2-5 times
The HCCA Compliance Institute is the best way to stay current on compliance topics, see leading speakers and to network with others in the industry. This year was my third conference, and each year I learn something new and meet new colleagues. It is worth the time and investment to stay current!
Mickey Chappelle 1st Time Attendee
A great opportunity to get your "feet wet" in the healthcare compliance world!. Coming from a clinical background in nursing, it was both refreshing and eye opening. All healthcare workers need this information...
Jill Paiva, CPCO 1st Time Attendee
I was a first time attendee and I can not express enough how wonderful this conference was. I learned alot of valuable information and met some amazing people. The experience was worth every dollar spent.
Bill Davis 1st Time Attendee
The pre-session and breakouts had topics that were spot on for my needs. The general sessions, especially those on Tuesday were very informative as well as motivational. Excellent overall.
