In January 2006, Assembly Bill 1234 required some 10,000 directors, trustees and other governing board members of California special districts, as well as city and county officials, to begin receiving ethics training. Recertification is required every two years. It may be time to renew your ethics training.
This two-hour workshop covers general ethics principles and state laws related to:
- Personal financial gain by public servants.
- Conflict of interest, bribery and nepotism.
- Gift, travel and mass-mailing restrictions.
- Honoraria, financial interest disclosure and competitive bidding.
- Prohibitions on the use of public resources for personal or political purposes.
- The Brown Act open meeting law.
- The Public Records Act.
