Four Reasons to Attend LD-203 Ethics Boot Camp

Friday, July 2nd, 2010 by Vbhotla

1. As a lobbyist listed on an LD-2, you must file an LD-203. The LD-203 has civil and criminal penalties attached to it. If you fill out a legally binding document incorrectly, you run the risk of opening yourself (and your company) up to damaging PR and DOJ investigations. Learn exactly what you’re signing and why, at the audioconference.

2. Cleta Mitchell. Cleta is one of the nation’s leading political lawyers and an expert on the LD-203 and related issues. Take advantage of the situation to ask your own specific questions, before you have to answer questions from DOJ lawyers.

3. Learn how to record-keep properly. The statute requires a certain number of years’ worth of record-keeping. Learn how to properly retain what you’ll need in the event of an audit or internal investigation.

4. Get proof of your good-faith effort to understand the law. A quick but detailed survey after the conference tests your knowledge of the topics and provides you with proof of training – particularly useful in the event of a GAO audit.
