2017 Ethics, Public Records & Sunshine Laws Workshop

During the 2013 Legislative Session, the Florida legislature passed new 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 as well as fulfill their 2017 Ethics requirement for the Legislature.  ACC graduates will receive 25 Torchbearer points and county staff will receive 6 hours of Core Ethics credit for attending toward their County Government Education designation.

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 2017, instead of just one a year. We will offer most of these programs as either pre- or post-conference events in conjunction with our Legislative Day (April), Annual (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 November 14, 2017 (1:00 pm – 6:00 pm) at the Hyatt Regency Sarasota in conjunction with FAC's Annual Legislative Conference (Sarasota County).
