Inviting Government Guests
Pursuant to the Office of Government Ethics regulation on widely attended gatherings (5 C.F.R. 2635.204(g)(2)), the FCBA Annual Dinner appears to qualify as a widely attended gathering. Most employees of the Federal Communications Commission may be directly invited to attend the dinner as guests of individuals and organizations without the involvement of the FCBA. However, individuals who have signed the Administration’s Ethics pledge cannot accept invitations from registered lobbying organizations or registered lobbyists. Some agencies, departments and branches of the Federal Government may apply additional stipulations above the regulations issued by the Office of Government Ethics. While this event has qualified as a widely attended gathering in previous years, each FCC employee is required to obtain individual ethics clearance based on matters they are working on within the Commission. Employees of the Commerce Department are required to obtain individual ethics clearance through the Department’s Office of General Counsel. Invitations to Members of Congress, Congressional Staff, and employees of the Department of State must be issued by the FCBA.
Requests for invitations to be sent from the FCBA must be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, November 17. Invitees will be placed at the discretion of the FCBA.
