March 10: Changing Organization Cultures: Red Flags of Corruption and Lessons on Instilling Integrity - Creating a culture of integrity and transparency requires more than a simple rule change. Entrenched norms and practices must also be addressed to move an organization from a mindset of "how it has always been done" to "how it should be done." What are the red flags of a corrupt organizational culture that managers should keep in mind? How can agencies promote a transparent and accountable workplace? What are cost-effective ways to instill ethical behavior and protect against waste, fraud, and abuse? Join CAPI for a half-day conference with industry leaders from the public and private sectors to discuss practical lessons for promoting integrity in organizational cultures. Free CLE may be available to non-transitional New York State attorneys. RSVP here.
March 16: MWBE Fraud Workshop - Minority and Women Owned Business fraud diverts taxpayer money, hinders infrastructure developments, and undermines the purpose of this crucial program.

On December 9, CAPI will hold its second conference addressing M/WBE fraud. Participants from the construction industry, law enforcement, government, and M/WBEs themselves will meet to strategize ways to reform and enhance the program to avoid fraud, waste, and abuse. Stay tunes for more details.
