Well presented, and the speaker was eloquent and charismatic. Still, these annual pep lectures in which the general theme seems to be Planning/ Urban Design/ Community Engagement is Good and Just Look what we did in Some Place where You'll Never Live are getting familiar.

AICP Ethics Case of the Year

5

Solid performance from all speakers, and good graphics. It's hard to make an ethics panel exciting or entertaining, but the speakers did a good job and backed it with some of the better graphics I saw at this conference. The one thing that I didn't hear was what I think is the biggest ethics challenge out there, at least for local government employees--what do you do when you are ordered by management to give an approval recommendation to a bad application, or vice versa? As professional planners are being replaced with managers who are political hacks, what's a planner to do?
