Education and Outreach
The Ethics Commission staff provides a variety of ethics education programs free of charge. The staff conducts training and educational seminars on the Ethics Act, the Open Meetings Act (Sunshine Law) and on the Code of Conduct for Administrative Law Judges. Our presenters can tailor the presentation to suit the needs of your group or organization.
The Ethics Commission also provides required training for Lobbyists. Lobbyists who are registered in West Virginia must attend an approved Lobbyist Training Class once during every two-year registration cycle.

In addition to conducting training programs for groups of public officials, public employees and citizens, the Commission has pamphlets and guidelines addressing various ethics issues. You may download many of these materials from this web site. Brochures & Guides
Due to travel and time constraints, we require a minimum attendance of fifteen people for training sessions held outside the Charleston area. A public agency may meet this quota, and assist the Commission in its outreach efforts, by inviting members of other governing bodies in your county or surrounding area.
