Re: Updated Ethics Resources from the League
The League is happy to announce several ethics resources available to municipalities.
The League can arrange for a seminar to be given in your municipality by League General Counsel Bill Kearns. Mr. Kearns can present to a single municipality or to employees from a combination of municipalities. For costs and arrangements, contact Bill Dressel at BDressel@njslom.com or (609) 695-3481 x122.
Mr. Kearns is also offering a seminar entitled “Ethics and Conflicts of Interest.” This will be held on two dates this summer, June 15th at the Bethlehem Community Center in Asbury and June 25th at the Burlington Township Community Room in Burlington Township. Both will be from 8:30 am to 12:00 pm, and cover ethical conduct, financial disclosure, case studies, and more. We are currently working with the Department of Community Affairs to obtain CEU credits for these seminars. Cost is $55.00 for members and $75.00 for non-members. To register, click here, go to the date you are attending, download the registration form, complete and fax it with your voucher to (609) 695-0151. If you have any questions, please contact Suzanne Delany at SDelany@njslom.com or 609-695-3481 ext 111.
Finally, the League has recently updated its Ethics in Government webpage. The update includes articles on the possible criminal consequences of unethical behavior, forensic accounting, and guidance on pay-to-play rules. Please visit http://www.njslom.org/ethics_resource_center.html to see what is new.
If you have any questions on any of these offerings, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 609-695-3481 ext. 137.
Very truly yours
William G. Dressel, Jr.
