Society of Government Meeting Professionals

Improving the quality of government meetings

Since 1989, the Greater Oregon Chapter of the Society of Government Meeting Professionals (GOSGMP) has been dedicated to improving the knowledge, expertise, and cost effectiveness for individuals responsible for planning and managing government meetings through education, communications, and industry relationships.

GOSGMP is one of 30 chapters of SGMP, joined together in the mission of providing quality meeting planning education, training, and networking opportunities for meeting planners and suppliers. We are a non-profit professional organization comprised of professionals involved in planning government meetings, either on a full or part-time basis, and those individuals who supply services to government planners.

Join us in October!
Drawing the Lines: An Oregon Government Ethics Review 

The course content will cover Use of Position or Office and Gifts.  Learn how the law prohibits a public official from using their official position to obtain a financial gain or avoid a financial cost. Hear about financial benefits which, although they are available to a public official because of their official position, the law does allow.

In addition, learn how the law defines gifts, and how the law restricts a public official’s ability to accept gifts that might be offered to them. Analyze when the $50 gift limit applies. Review how these statutes affect family members and members of the household of the public official. Hear about gifts that may be accepted without limit because statute excludes them from the definition of a “gift”.
