The Ethics Board advises that:

1. A state public official attending a conference or convention may accept
      educational or informational material or other item for the purpose of
      conveying it to the State of Wisconsin for the use or benefit of a state
      office or agency.

2. Except as just noted, a state public official should not accept from a lobbying
      principal or lobbyist anything of pecuniary value or from anyone else
      any item of more than token value. This is so, regardless of whether the
      official was to retain it or furnish it to another for other than governmental
      use.

3. A state official should not accept, without full payment, a meal or drink
      offered at a conference or convention unless it is provided, arranged, or
      sanctioned by the event’s sponsor.
