An extension of the building conversion session, visiting the office to school conversion really took the case and gave it life.

Ethics Case of the Year

It would help to have handouts to work from, as in past years. Or remind people to bring a copy of the AICP ethics standards. It is very hard to have a group discussion while looking up the provisions on our phones. The discussion would be more valuable if we all had the same reference to look at. Otherwise, great session.
