Sheraton Hotel Columbus at Capitol Square Thursday, May 17, 2012
75 East State Street, Columbus OH 43215

Only three weeks until the 2012 Support Staff Training –
don’t forget to get your registration in!

Since most counties are suffering budget shortages, this training has been scheduled for only one day, in the hope that this will allow more to join us for the exciting program! By request, we have extended lunch to one and a half hours to allow more time for interaction between counties.

To avoid confusion, the Sheraton is the same hotel at which previous Support Staff Trainings were held. Last year this Hyatt sold to the Sheraton. Directions are not being given at this time because the orange barrels have taken over in Columbus. When it comes closer to the training date, either check with our office, or get your route on line. At the present time (particularly if you are coming from the north) road closings change daily.

2:45 - 3:45 Understanding Attorney Ethics, Conduct and Misconduct in the Court System
Yes, every attorney licensed in Ohio must meet ethical standards or face discipline by the Ohio Supreme Court. Support staff who must deal with attorneys on a daily basis will obtain a general understanding of ethical standards that must be met by attorneys who practice in Ohio. This seminar will give a summary of the ethical standards for attorneys and how they impact the support staff. Further, prosecutors have specific ethical rules that must be met when they prosecute cases. This seminar will review ethical standards for prosecutors including the code of professional conduct.
Philip Bogdanoff
Retired Summit County Assistant Prosecuting Attorney

The registration fee of $150.00 covers handout materials, continental breakfast, lunch and break refreshments. Please submit registrations to OPAA by May 10th. Because we must commit early to the expenses involved in producing the handout materials, cancellations through May 10th will be assessed a $45.00 fee, and the handout materials will be sent. Cancellations after May 10th (other than emergencies) will be assessed a total of $100.00. In addition to the handouts, this will help to defray the cost of food guarantees required at that time.

NOTE: If any registrant has special dietary needs, contact Delores at
614-221-1266 so that advance arrangements can be made.
If the request can be handled by the hotel food service,
there will not be a charge. However, if it is necessary
to go to an outside source, there will be a charge,
and the registrant will be notified in advance.
