Important Update: Training is Now Mandatory
Pursuant to the Charter Reform process in 2010, the people of New York voted to amend City Charter Section 2603(b) to require City employees to complete Conflicts of Interest training every two years. Contact the Training Unit to arrange to train your workplace and remain in compliance with the law.

What We Offer:

Live Classes

The Board's Training & Education Unit conducts hundreds of in-person presentations each year for City workers of all ranks and job descriptions

Classes are available in various formats and levels of complexity, including for CLE credits in Ethics and Professionalism, and can be tailor-made to address both conflicts of interest rules and related agency rules.

The Training & Education Unit prides itself on using humor and storytelling techniques to keep audience members engaged while conveying both the letter and the spirit of the law. Attendees frequently remark, “That was actually fun!” 

Leaflets, Guides and Books

Contact the Training Unit to request hard copies of the Board’s self-published guides, law books, rule-books and pamphlets.
