In September 2014, the U.S. Office of Government Ethics (OGE) successfully completed an exciting new venture to deliver the highest quality training in an entirely different way, one that charged the ethics program with a new level of energy: the National Government Ethics Summit. The Summit was a series of events in the Washington, D.C. area that brought together leaders from the executive branch ethics community, representatives from the legislative and judicial branches, members of the press, advocates from good government groups, noted thinkers from academia, and officials from state and local governments.
Here you will find links to the virtual-only sessions and sessions that were live streamed from the Three-Day Forum of the Summit.
You will find links to slide presentations, handouts, reference materials, and speaker bios within the Summit Guide.
Summit sessions covered topical and advanced issues in ethics law and policy, including the finer points of the criminal conflict of interest statutes, complexities in applying the Standards of Conduct, and advanced financial disclosure. Other sessions covered ethics-related authorities such as the Hatch Act, Whistleblower Protection Act, and travel regulations.
OGE held the in-person Summit events at metro-accessible locations in the DC area.
