New Conflicts of Interests training requirement for local elected officials

July 3, 2019

As of July 1, 2019, all local elected officials (including constitutional officers) are required to complete training on the Conflict of Interests Act once every two years.

This training is provided by the Virginia Conflict of Interest and Ethics Advisory Council and is now available on the Council’s website: http://ethics.dls.virginia.gov/.

The online training consists of a 55-minute module including a question and answer section of the presentation.

Any local elected official who is already in office as of July 1, 2019, has until December 31, 2019, to complete their first training. Any local elected official who takes office after July 1, 2019, must take their first training within two months of assuming office.  Documentation of each local elected official’s training must be maintained by the clerk of the local governing body or school board.
