2018 Ethics, Public Records & Sunshine Laws Workshop

During the 2013 Legislative Session, the Florida legislature passed ethics legislation requiring that Commissioners and other Constitutional Officers take four hours of Ethics programming each calendar year.  This workshop is open to Commissioners, County Staff and all other Constitutional Officers.  Participants who complete this workshop in its entirety will receive 6 core credits toward the CCC Certification/County Government Education Program as well as fulfill their 2018 Ethics requirement for the Legislature.

Since 1996, as part of FAC’s Certified County Commissioner (CCC) Program, FAC has offered a comprehensive 6 hour mandatory Ethics, Public Records & Sunshine Law Course. Our existing course meets the requirements addressed in this new legislation. FAC will continue to offer this Ethics program but will now have more opportunities for Commissioners and Constitutional Officers to meet their requirements by holding at least three Ethics workshops in 2018, instead of just one a year. We offer these workshops as pre-conference events in conjunction with our Legislative Day (February), Annual Conference (June) and Legislative Conference (November).

FAC’s program includes expert speakers from the Attorney General’s Office and the Florida Commission on Ethics to explain Florida’s stringent laws. Participants will learn ethics requirements for elected officials, understand the Sunshine Law and Public Records Law, learn about reporting requirements, and become familiar with the process of an ethics complaint.

This workshop will be held February 6, 2018 (1:00 pm – 6:00 pm) at the Tourist Development Council located at 106 East Jefferson Street, Tallahassee, FL 32301 (Leon County).
