North Carolina law requires the governing boards of cities, counties, local boards of education, unified governments, sanitary districts, and consolidated city-counties to adopt local codes of ethics, and requires the members of these boards to receive ethics training after each election or re-election to office.

The Ethics for Local Government Officials microsite provides resources and information on ethics training opportunities to assist local elected officials in complying with these legal requirements.
