Letter to Volunteers, New Code of Conduct

Image of Chris Gornik's letter

On Friday, November 30, 2012, Volunteer Trainer Chris Gornik sent a letter to all volunteers and staff regarding recertification and a new code of conduct form for the 2013–2014 fiscal year.

All volunteers are required to complete a total of twelve (12) hours in-service continuing education and sign the Guardian ad Litem Code of Conduct each fiscal year to maintain certification. This fiscal year's deadline is June 30, 2013.

There are several ways to report your continuing education hours.

  • Online
    Submit your hours quickly and easily from our website.
  • Downloadable Form
    Complete, print and sign this form to send by mail, fax or email.

If you use the downloadable form to report your hours, send it to us in one of the following ways.

  • Mail to 1920 Thomasville Road, Suite 208, Tallahassee, Florida 32303-5217
  • Fax to (850) 606-1201
  • Scan and Email to christine.gornik@gal.fl.gov

There is no online version of the code of conduct. Download, print and sign the document and then send it to us by mail, fax or email as detailed above. Volunteers may submit their signed code of conduct with or at the same time as the completed continuing education form.

All hours and documentation must be submitted by June 30, 2013. Volunteers will then be mailed new certification cards with an expiration date of June 30, 2014.

If you have any questions about this process, please email christine.gornik@gal.fl.gov or call (850) 606-1228.

Thank you for your continued advocacy!
