    The State Ethics Act was enacted to strengthen the faith and confidence of state and local citizens in their government, and to ensure that the financial interests of holders, nominees and/or candidates for public offices do not conflict with the public trust. It is important to always keep in mind that public office is a public trust, and that any effort to realize personal financial gain through your public office, other than compensation provided by law, is a violation of that trust. As a currently serving public official, you are subject to the provisions of the Ethics Act. This seminar has been designed to explain the mandates of the Ethics Act as it relates to public officials and employees, and to explore and define potential conflicts of interest situations that public officials/employees should avoid. Actual case scenarios will be presented and discussed as examples of situations relevant to public positions. Substantive and administrative aspects of personal disclosure statement will also be discussed, as well as the purpose and benefit of advisory opinions.

    In this webinar, Jason Wert with RETTEW will review the many benefits – financial, long-term resiliency, and sustainability – that grid-independent solar operations can bring municipalities and municipal authorities. He will use as a case study the University Area Joint Authority in State College, which incorporated a Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) into its original solar array and has since achieved approximately 80% grid-based energy independence through this integrated system at its wastewater treatment and reuse facilities.

    If you're not focused on volunteer recruitment and retention for your volunteer fire departments -- what are you focused on? This conversation will outline some of the forces converging on today's volunteers and will focus on offering solutions for the community and its first responders to move forward together towards adequate and affordable public safety services.

    If you're not focused on volunteer recruitment and retention for your volunteer fire departments -- what are you focused on? 

    None of the "widgets" of the volunteer fire service (apparatus, stations and equipment) are of any value without the proper quantity and quality of volunteers to make it all work. To reframe the statement, 100% of the widgets of the fire service are 100% useless without the proper quantity and quality of volunteers to make it all work!!!

    Whether your municipality takes a hands-off or a highly-engaged approach to providing fire protection and emergency services to your community, local government is ultimately responsible for supporting and helping your volunteer fire department survive and thrive. The value of your volunteer fire department cannot be calculated by just the services they perform, but must account for the total impact having a VOLUNTEER fire department has on your citizens, including but not limited to it being part of the very fabric of what makes your municipality a community.
