      Public Office Public Trust Workshop

      The Caux Round Table for Moral Capitalism Presents Public Office as a Public Trust - A Workshop on the Ethics of Public Stewardship Beating at the heart of American democracy is the ethical proposition that “Public Office is a Public Trust.”  But what does this mean?  Where did the idea come from?  Is it still true?  How can we tell a good public servant from an unworthy one? I'm delighted to invite you to participate in the Caux Round Table for Moral Capitalism’s (CRT) workshop on Public Office as a Public Trust scheduled for 8:30 am on Thursday, September 26th at the Humphrey School of Public Affairs. The workshop is a new initiative to encourage and professionalize elected and appointed public officials at all levels, as well as those who aspire to elective or appointive office, to live up to the highest standards of stewardship responsibility. The mission of the workshop is to promote good stewardship in office, thoughtful trusteeship and enlightened fiduciary practices using the CRT's Principles for Government as best practices.  The commitment of the workshop is taken from George Washington’s remarks to the delegates at the 1787 Constitutional Convention that “Let us raise a standard to which the wise and the honest may repair.” Tuition is $50 per person and $20 for current students who present a valid student I.D. at the door.
