“Professionalism & Ethics: Values, Integrity, Principles and How These Impact Daily Decisions of the Lobbying Profession”
A program, designed to provide opportunities to lobbyists to develop knowledge and individual introspections about legal issues, values, ethics/integrity principles, and how these impact daily decisions and careers. This program fosters discussion about issues as they relate to daily ethical decision-making by examining a series of case studies.
Participants will review applicable ethics ordinances, learn about Florida’s Sunshine Law, Jennings Rule, Public Records Law, The Paul Mendelson Citizen’s Right to Honest Government, Ways to Bribery, Role of City Attorney’s Office, Review of Lobbying Provisions contained in Miami-Dade County Code, and City of Miami Code and Florida Statutes. Participants will be allowed to discuss, evaluate, and solidify their own beliefs and values while learning with reference to others, particularly when two virtues conflict. All trainings are conducted by Joseph Centorino and Robert Meyers.
