Next IEC Meeting - December 1

Perhaps the most timely IEC meeting ever?! Just twelve days after OGE published the final rule implementing changes to the gifts regulations, you are invited…

The December 1st IEC meeting will be an interactive presentation entitled, “Gifts in a time of TRANSITIONS.” The discussion will be led by two members of the USDA’s Office of Ethics, Cheryl Embree and Andrew Tobin. They will provide you with a refresher on the gift rules by discussing hypothetical scenarios presented during the imminent presidential transition. They will also briefly highlight the recent changes to Standards of Ethical Conduct that govern gifts from outside sources, particularly the changes impacting the day-to-day lives of ethics practitioners.

We will meet as usual at the U.S. Access Board, 8th floor, 1331 F Street, NW, at 12:15pm.
