County Attorney to Participate in SAAA 2012 Ethics Forum

PHOENIX, AZ (February 28, 2012) - Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery will participate in the Service Academy Alumni of Arizona (SAAA) 2012 Ethics Forum, which will be held on March 2nd, 2012 at the East Valley institute of Technology. This annual event for alumni of the nation’s military academies has been expanded this year to include college and high school ROTC students as well as other student leaders. Organized as a series of breakout sessions, the forum is designed to provide participants with tools and methods for ethical decision making as well as a greater awareness of what ethics are and why they are important to our society.

“I am honored to be part of this worthy event and to help reinvigorate a commitment to integrity among our future generation of leaders,” remarked Montgomery, a decorated Army veteran and graduate of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. “The ethical orientation I learned as a cadet and later relied on as a military officer informs everything I do today as the chief prosecutor for Maricopa County, and I am eager to impart the value and importance of this solid foundation in ethics to the Forum participants,” he added.

Montgomery will participate in a panel addressing the topic of applying and enforcing ethics. The Forum will also examine the role of ethics in business, the military, medicine and politics, with discussions led by prominent local figures in each of these disciplines. Dr. Shaun Baker, a professor at the U.S. Naval Academy Stockdale Center for Ethical Leadership, will also attend the event. Ethics training materials currently in use by the USNA will be provided to participants.

Among the issues addressed by the Forum will be the definition and importance of ethics; how to learn and teach ethics; the realities of ethics in the workplace; how ethics are different from other concepts like morals, honor and integrity; enforcing ethics; and what to do when unethical behavior is encountered.
