    Online Ethics Now Available

    Read More

    During the 2013 Legislative Session, the Florida legislature passed ethics legislation requiring that County Commissioners and Constitutional Officers take four hours of Ethics programming each calendar year.  The Florida Association of Counties wants to make it convenient for you to meet this requirement by offering a comprehensive Ethics, Public Records & Sunshine Law workshop that you may participate in and complete at your own pace. 

    For the last twenty years, FAC has offered a comprehensive mandatory Ethics Course as part of FAC's Certified County Commissioner (CCC) Program that meets the requirements addressed in this legislation. FAC's online workshop is modeled after our onsite program and includes videos of expert speakers from the Attorney General's Office and the Florida Commission on Ethics explaining 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.
