The Public Sector Roundtable is a quarterly forum for city and county officials.

Mayors, councilmembers, ethics commissioners, city managers and other officials, and county supervisors meet with scholars and subject-area specialists to discuss ethical dilemmas. Topics have included pension reform, redistricting, use of social media in government, and budgeting in a time of fiscal austerity. Attendance at the Public Sector Roundtable is by invitation only.
