LeadingAge PA Annual Conference + EXPO

Jane Mack, President/CEO & Karla Dreisbach, Vice President of Compliance, FSA; Paula Sanders, Principal and Co-Chair, Health Practice Group, Post & Schell

Government guidance and requirements related to compliance programs continue to increase. The board is seen as the quarterback of these efforts and expected to have meaningful awareness and oversight of a valid and robust program. Yet many board members have little to no preparation for this or understanding of what compliance is about.

This session will look at how LeadingAge members can work with their boards to effectively discharge their duties related to compliance. What are the components of a valid compliance program as required by the federal government? How does compliance fit into the governance and oversight role of an organization? What are the legal requirements of boards related to compliance and the implications for failing to meet them? How does an active compliance program demonstrate that a board is discharging its duties effectively? And what are possible ways to communicate compliance activities to the board without inviting them into day to day operations?
