    FAC Offers Onsite and Online Ethics Workshops

    Read More

    Just a reminder:  you are required to take four hours of Ethics education each calendar year!

    FAC offers the solution--ONSITE and ONLINE Ethics Workshops!

    During the 2013 Legislative Session, the Florida legislature passed ethics legislation requiring that Commissioners and other Constitutional Officers take four hours of Ethics programming each calendar year.  For the last twenty years, FAC has offered a mandatory Ethics course as part of FAC’s Certified County Commissioner (CCC) Program that meets the requirements addressed in this legislation.

    FAC continues to offer this course and has added several programming options to make it convenient for Commissioners, County Staff and Constitutional Officers to complete this Ethics, Public Records & Sunshine Law requirement.
