The State Ethics Commission provides mandatory ethics and lobbying education for public servants and ethics liaisons. You may access all state ethics commission requirements at this resource.
All public servants and ethics liaisons are required to attend an ethics and lobbying education presentation within six (6) months of the person's election appointment or employment and attend a refresher presentation at least every two (2) years thereafter.
Failure to attend an ethics and lobbying education presentation is a violation of the State Government Ethics Act. This violation may result in the individual being recommended for removal from his or her public position or disciplined in their state job.
