The Gray Areas of Government Ethics - 10/19/2016
Local Government Officials are expected to follow the Local Government Ethics Law as designated by the State of New Jersey. Municipal Attorneys typically advise local officials on proper behavior and conduct in their municipalities. However, in many cases there are "gray areas" or situations that do not fall into these guidelines often leading to confusion in how it should be handled. This can often cause problems as the perception of one person can vary from another. The purpose of this seminar is to review the Local Government Ethics law, discuss these "gray areas," and aide Municipal Attorneys and Municipal Officials in making the proper judgement in these situations. This seminar will be held on TWO DIFFERENT DATES: October 19, 2016 at the Holiday Inn Hasbrouck Heights from 10:00am - 1:30 pm and October 26, 2016 at the Hotel ML in Mount Laurel from 10:00am - 1:30pm. CEUs have been approved. Registration is available online. For more information please contact Danielle Holland-Htut at 609-695-3481 ext 118 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
