Ethics Liaison

Agency heads are required to designate “ethics liaisons” (G.S. 138A-14(e)). Ethics liaisons are the primary point of contact for the State Ethics Commission. The Commission relies on ethics liaisons to forward information from the Commission to their agency employees and board members covered by the ethics law and to communicate information to the Commission.
