Request for Advisory Opinion

March 24, 2017

The Board again discussed a request from the Office of the Attorney General to consider drafting an Advisory Opinion on the acceptable use of state resources for sharing external information with employees when the information is intended to advance cultural competence in the workplace and the practice of law. The question before them is whether or not it is permissible to use state resources, such as email and electronic bulletin boards, to notify employees of diversity events and trainings sponsored by outside organizations when there may be a fundraising component to the event.

The Board voted to amend Advisory Opinion 02-02A Use of State Resources Questions and Answers to add questions that address the issues presented by the Office of the Attorney General.
