Ethical Challenges Facing Local Governments

FCCMA District Training
February 21 – Fort Pierce – 9:00 am to 1:00 pm (includes lunch)

FCCMA logoIn the last decade, the advent of social media and other technical advances has challenged local governments to effectively respond to evolving issues; all which have an ethical component that must be considered and defined. Building and sustaining a culture of ethics becomes even more important with the discretion employees must have to fulfill their ever changing public service duties. This session will help define and discuss these ethical challenges in an informative and interactive program.

Presenters: George Brown, Deputy City Manager, Boca Raton; Noah Powers, Town Manager, Orchid; Nick Mimms, City Manager, Fort Pierce; Howard Tipton, County Administrator, St. Lucie County; and Katherine Barbieri, Assistant County Attorney, St. Lucie County.

Don’t miss this opportunity to engage in training side-by-side with Florida’s managers.


All FCCMA members are invited, but likely participants will be from District 4 including county and city members within Indian River, Martin, Palm Beach and St. Lucie Counties.
