§ 54520. Positions Creating Conflicts of Interest for Regional Center Governing Board Members and Executive Directors.
(a) A conflict of interest exists when a regional center governing board member, executive director, or a family member of such person is any of the following for a business entity, entity, or provider as defined in section 54505 of these regulations, except to the extent such position is permitted by Welfare and Institutions Code sections 4622 and 4626.
(1) a governing board member;
(2) a board committee member;
(3) a director;
(4) an officer;
(5) an owner;
(6) a partner;
(7) a shareholder;
(8) a trustee;
(9) an agent;
(10) an employee;
(11) a contractor;
(12) a consultant;
(13) a person who holds any position of management; or
(14) a person who has decision or policy making authority.
(b) A regional center board member or family member of such person who is an employee or contractor of a state or local governmental entity that provides services to regional center consumers and who works in a position having no relation to providing those services to regional center consumers does not have a conflict of interest as a result of his or her position. This exception does not apply to an employee of the Department of Developmental Services, who is still precluded from being a board member under Welfare & Institutions Code section 4626, subdivision (b)(1).
(c) There is no conflict of interest for purposes of these regulations where a consumer receives employment services through a regional center provider and the consumer's family member is a governing board member or executive director of the regional center, or the consumer's family member holds a position described in subsection (a)(1) to (14) with the provider providing the employment services, if the employment service is made equally available to all eligible consumers of the regional center in question.
(d) These conflict of interest provisions are in addition to those conflicts identified in Welfare and Institutions Code sections 4622 and 4626.
