2012 Winter Conference Session – Pitfalls & Pillars of Ethics Compliance

Thursday, January 5, 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM

Recent legislation required local government and boards of educations to adopt financial disclosure and conflict of interest reporting requirements that are equal to or stricter than the State’s requirements. While most counties have updated their ordinances at this time, many county elected officials are still learning about and trying to understand the changes. Panelists will provide a brief overview of the new State law, discuss its benefits and drawbacks, and highlight potential situations and “pitfalls” where county elected officials could unintentionally violate the new rules.

Speakers include:

(1) Michael W. Lord, Executive Director, State Ethics Commission
(2) Deadra W. Daly, Assistant General Counsel, State Ethics Commission
(3) The Honorable Laura E. Price, Talbot County Council Member
(4) Susan Wichmann, Executive Director, Common Cause Maryland
