Event Details

Description:  This ninety minute webinar has two, equal-time segments. For the first forty-five minutes, the three panellists-- an integrity commissioner (Rust-D’Eye), a fairness officer (Chamberland), and an ethicist (Nitkin)—will each take turns providing answers to four questions about the scope, approach and best practice of managing conflict of interest challenges. During the second 45 minute segment, attendees can pose questions to the three panellists, hear answers to all questions posed to the panel by the moderator, in addition to the panellists offering a range of comments on issues such as complaint resolution and handling methods, relevant case law and management guidance.

In the initial segment, the panellists will each address four questions

  1. In a municipal government setting, what is conflict of interest?
  2. How should conflict of interest be addressed, trained to and/or handled?
  3. What are the limitations of current legislation, regulations, and practice?
  4. What are best practice tools or techniques to prevent conflict of interest?

This webinar was taken by over 65 persons in December 2013.  

Outcome: This participatory Webinar, Conflict of Interest: Proactive and Principled Inoculation Against Wrongdoing in Municipalities, is intended to help inoculate politicians, lawyers and clerks with a better appreciation of how conflict of interest may affect their activities.
