Registration opens for luncheon on “Ethics in Business”

Above Board Chamber of Florida is pleased to present “Ethics in Business” from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 9 at City Pier, 1300 Hendry St. in Fort Myers and on Thursday, Nov. 12 at the Hilton Naples, 5111 Tamiami Trail N. in Naples. Reservations are required at www.aboveboardchamber.com.

The panel program will help define business ethics as the set of moral rules that govern how businesses operate, how business decisions are made and how people are treated. In business, there are many different people you have to answer to: customers, shareholders and clients. Determining what to do when an ethical dilemma arises among these different interests can be extremely tricky, and as such, business ethics are complex and multi-faceted. Come meet our panelists and learn how they operate.

The Fort Myers meeting will be emceed by Connie Ramos-Williams of CONRIC PR & Marketing and will feature a panel including: Wayne Kirkwood, President of Kirkwood Electric; Henry Lee Paul, P.A., Former Florida Bar Council on the grievance committee for ethics; Brian Rist, CEO/President of Smart Companies; and Ita M. Neymotin, Regional Conflict Counsel, Office of Criminal Conflict and Civil Regional Counsel.

The Naples meeting will be emceed by Lois A. Bolin Ph.D. President of Success Fulfillment, Inc. and will feature a panel including: Ursula Pfahl, Vice-President, Business Development at Bigham Jewelers; Henry Lee Paul, P.A., Former Florida Bar Council on the grievance committee for ethics; Phil Memoli, Vice President of University Advancement at Hodges University; and Tiffany McQuaid, Broker/Owner at McQuaid & Company.
