A state public official should not accept a paid position as a member of a
private company's advisory board unless:

  a. the official's appointing authority has determined the private
      pursuit will not conflict with his or her official duties or
      reflect adversely upon the official's agency and

  b. the official can demonstrate that the position is offered
      primarily for reasons independent of holding a state public
      office.

If the official accepts the private position, the official should not:
  a. use the state's time or resources while engaging in companyrelated
      activities;

  b. use his or her official position to benefit the company;

  c. participate in an official decision that will affect the company
      in a way significantly different from the way the decision
      affects other companies; or

  d. use confidential information the official acquires from his or
      her state job to help the company.
