Ethics Pre-Conference Training (9/12/24 Monterey)


Location and Date

12:30 p.m.-2:30 p.m.


California’s conflict of interest laws is based on the belief that a public official cannot serve two masters simultaneously, and that the duties of public office demand absolute loyalty of the individual who holds that office. The purpose of the conflict-of-interest laws is to eliminate temptation, avoid the appearance of impropriety, and limit the possibility of improper personal influence on a public officer’s decision.


This training will give a comprehensive overview of the conflict-of-interest laws applicable to school board members, including hypothetical situations for deeper learning experiences, and resources for additional knowledge. A certificate of completion will be awarded to the school board member upon successful completion of this training.

Who should attend?

AB 2158 amends the Government Code and requires local agency officials to complete ethics trainings every two years during their term. Previously, members of school district governing boards, county boards of education and governing bodies for charter schools were exempt from the ethics trainings requirement. Importantly, unlike other local agency officials, board members are subject to the ethics training requirement whether or not the member receives any type of compensation, salary, stipend or reimbursement for actual and necessary expenses incurred in the performance of official duties. (Gov. Code § 53234.)


The registration fee is $125, including materials. This does not include access to the CSBA County Board Member Services Conference.
