On the important topic of Ethics, State of Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel will be an instructor for one of the case studies in this continuing education effort.  His segment is a case study of the implementation of the Open Checkbook and the importance of transparency and ethics in all areas of commerce, including government.

According to Treasurer Mandel, “Transparency is a cornerstone of ethics, whether those ethics are personal, professional or governmental.  As a result of my development of the Open Checkbook, the State of Ohio has moved from last to first in terms of government transparency and disclosure. The Open Checkbook is spreading to other government agencies, political subdivisions and levels of government throughout the United States.  I am pleased to assist insurance agents fulfill their continuing education requirements in the important area of ethics as insurance companies and producers contribute heavily to Ohio’s diverse economy.”
