A Guide for Public Officials
The Oregon Government Ethics Commission has prepared a booklet entitled " Oregon Government Ethics LawA Guide for Public Officials." This resource reivews several ethics topics one by one. It covers both the statutes and the Oregon Administrative Rules, and includes examples.  This 50-page book is a useful tool.
 
You can either print off a hard copy or save a PDF version to your computer. The electronic copy is a searchable PDF, allowing you to easily research a topic.
 
The most recent version was approved by the Commission in October, 2010, as it incorporates the changes that were made to the law during the legislative session of 2009, and no changes were made to the Oregon Government Ethics law during the 2011 legislative session.
 
Access the current guide by selecting this link: "Guide For Public Officials". 
To request a hard copy free of charge, call 503-378-5105 or e-mail ogec.mail@oregon.gov.


Training Resources

iLinc Webinars 
 
The webinars are presented live by an OGEC trainer. Anyone may participate in any of these classes, but the number of available spaces is limited. Please register at least one day in advance by emailing ogec.training@oregon.gov with the name and date of the webinar you wish to take. Webinars are provided free of charge. 
 
You will need to be at an internet-connected computer. You can access the sound by either connecting to a conference telephone call, or through your computer speakers using VOIP.
 
These webinars work best on computers with recent operating systems, Internet Explorer 6.0, 7.0, or 8.0, at least 256 MB of memory, a processor speed of at least 1GHz, and an internet connection of at least 56Kbps. This website will test your system to make sure you can successfully participate in an iLinc webinar:  
https://oregonconnect.ilinc.com/perl/ilinc/lms/systest.pl

For a full description of the system requirements, please see the last page of this document.
 
Conference calls are clearer than VOIP, do not use any internet bandwidth, and allow you to speak to the instructor. VOIP sound is provided through your internet connection, but is a little less clear and uses 15KBps of bandwidth, so you need an internet speed of at least 100Kbps. Attendees listening via VOIP can type-chat with the instructor, but cannot be heard. You can choose to listen in by either method.
