EVENT ANNOUNCEMENT: The 25th Annual Citywide Seminar on Ethics in City Government: Tradition and Change – 5/23 & 5/29

This year marks the Silver Anniversary of this successful collaboration between the Conflicts of Interest Board and the Center for New York City Law at New York Law School.  It also marks a time of tremendous change at the Conflicts of Interest Board, including several new legal mandates and a significant number of new Board rules. Accordingly, this year’s conference is devoted to enriching participants’ understanding of the recent changes that have taken place and some of the changes yet to come.
