Ethics for meeting planners is a subject that can be confusing for both planners and suppliers. What one planner sees as “no big deal,” another planner sees as “unethical.” This can be especially frustrating for suppliers who receive conflicting responses from their customers. Join us on April 27 as we tackle some common scenarios faced by both planners and suppliers regarding the understanding of government ethics and lean the do’s and don’ts’ of ethical meeting planning.
The speaker is Kate Reynolds, Executive Director, Washington State Ethics Board
The learning objectives for the meeting are:
1. Understanding what the regulations state is and is not acceptable ethical behavior for a government meeting planner.
2. Understanding what government employees can and cannot accept as prizes of gifts from suppliers.
3. Understanding what types of supplier-hosted functions a government planner can and cannot attend.
Over the past 2 years, the PNW Chapter has worked harder than ever before to provide you with appropriate education to help you come back from the setback which was COVID. This education has come to you virtually, and at no cost to you. But is has also come to you with no money being added to our coffers. Because of this, and so that we can continue to provide quality education for you, we will begin charging a small amount to attend our monthly virtual meetings--$10 for planners and #20 for suppliers. By doing this we will be able to continue to provide you with the education you need and want to help you continue to plan quality and cost effective meetings for your agencies and departments.
DRAWING FOR THOSE THAT GENEROUSLY SENT A DONATION TO THE CHAPTER WILL BE AT THE JUNE 1, 2022 MEETING
