Ethics Bill Impact - VPAP Seminar

What does Virginia's new ethics law mean for you?

If you're not sure, join the nonprofit Virginia Public Access Project for a half-day seminar designed to help government affairs professionals understand the impact of House Bill 1211, which took effect July 1.

The course is focused on the practical impact of the law -- the new definition of "gift," more frequent registrations and disclosures, and the practical issues involved with oversight from two different agencies. There will also be a discussion of the uncertainty surrounding the law -- and the potential for additional changes over the course of the next 24 months.

The seminar will be led by VPAP Executive Director David Poole, who has nearly two decades of experience studying Virginia's disclosure laws.

Date:          August 6, 2014

Time:          9:30-11:30 a.m.

Location:   Electric Cooperatives Building -- 4201 Dominion Blvd., Glen Allen, VA  23060

Cost:           $150 per person (All proceeds support the nonprofit Virginia Public Access Project)

Seating is limited. Reserve your spot today.

Payments can be made online (select "VPAP General Fund" and "Make a one-time donation") or by mailing a check made out to "Virginia Public Access Project" to PO Box 1472, Richmond, VA 23218.
