The Shared Ethics Advisory Commission, which provides ethics training for employees of towns, cities, and counties in Lake, LaPorte and Porter counties, will sponsor and present a session at World Civility Day on April 13.
“Bringing ethics training to local government: What volunteers are doing in Northwest Indiana,” will be one of the workshops presented at the Indiana Welcome Center.
“Civility is an essential ingredient in the highest form of behavior—ethical thinking and acting,” said Cal Bellamy, recently re-elected president of the commission, which was formed in 2005.
“The Shared Ethics Advisory Commission is focused on ethical behavior in one sector—public employees, but the need is universal. Community Civility Counts reminds each one of us of our duty to be civil and ethical. It’s very much in our best interest to recognize and accept our duty.”
Community Civility Counts, which started as a partnership of the Gary Chamber of Commerce and The Times Media Co. in 2015 and has been expanding, is planning its second annual World Civility Day on Thursday, April 13.
A full-day of civility-themed workshops and an awards dinner in the evening will be held at the Indiana Welcome Center in Hammond and Avalon Manor in Merrillville.
Tickets can be ordered through the Gary Chamber of Commerce. Call (219) 885-7404. Tickets are $25 for the day sessions and lunch and $60 for the celebration and awards dinner. Tables of 10 for the dinner can be reserved for $550.
