State Ethics Act
In accordance with State Government Ethics Act (NCGS Chapter 138), all elected officials are required to complete a Statement of Economic Interest Form (SEI) upon election or appointment to the Board. The Ethics Commission reviews the SEI for any potential or perceived conflicts. Once approved by the Ethics Commission, elected and appointed members are required to complete an ethics training course within six (6) months.
All elected and appointed members are required to submit an annual SEI form for the duration of their term of office and complete a refresher ethics training course every two (2) years.
