Interactive Ethics
Ethics can be fun! No—really! Join us on February 11th as we use an interactive quiz format to
tackle some common scenarios faced by both planners and suppliers. Ethics is a subject that
can be confusing if you don’t have the tools and resources available to help with your decisionmaking. What one planner sees as “no big deal”, another planner sees as “unethical”. This can
be especially frustrating for suppliers who receive conflicting responses from their customers.
As a group, we will decide on a correct response to each question in our Ethics Quiz before we
enlist the aid of our federal and state Subject Matter Experts. Meet our Subject Matter Experts:
Kate Reynolds is the Executive Director of the Washington State Executive Ethics Board. Before
accepting her current position, Kate served as Special Assistant to the Commissioner at the
Washington State Office of the Insurance Commissioner and as an Assistant Attorney General in
the Attorney General’s Office for Washington State.
Commissioner Gary Hattal has been a Commissioner with the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service (FMCS) since 1995 working with labor and management to bridge differences and
manage conflict in both the private and public arenas. He has taught as an Adjunct Professor in
several Universities in the fields of Organizational Communication, Development, Group Dynamics and Interpersonal Communication.
This program is eligible for one contact hour in Ethics.

Our Community Service Partnership
For the 2014—2015 year, our organization has chosen to support Santa’s Castle. Santa’s Castle is a private 501(c)(3) dedicated to providing Christmas gifts to military families (primarily E-4 and below) who are
experiencing financial hardship. Service members are identified by their chain of command and referred to
the program. Once accepted, the service member is scheduled for a shopping appointment where they come
to Santa’s Castle to select gifts for their child or children.
Gina Abram is one of the many dedicated volunteers that
work year-round collecting donations of new toys, books,
games, bicycles, stocking stuffers, coloring books, and
crayons which we display in the castle. Service members
selected for Santa’s Castle chose the items their child
would like from the inventory we have on hand. They
need things for all ages. They are always in need of
infant items.
SGMP will be collecting donated items and cash
donations at the monthly meetings. If you have any
questions, please feel free to contact Bobbi at
(206) 248-4330.
