NPC17 Program: 2017 National Planning Conference
There are two types of activities at NPC17 and you sign up in different ways. Learn More
Ticketed Activities: Activities with a green "Ticket Required" button require a ticket which YOU MUST “purchase” to attend—even if it’s free. Purchase your ticket, add it to your cart, and continue through the purchasing process to confirm your space in that activity. Be sure to double check that you haven’t left something in your cart!
Non-Ticketed Activities: Activities with a Schedule or Schedule button are included in your registration fee and are first-come, first-seated. No spaces are reserved for these activities, so don’t be late. Adding these non-ticketed activities to My Schedule is for your reference only.

Planners often work for city/county managers who have different approaches and ethical standards. Learn how to meet the standards of the AICP Code of Ethics while balancing the complementary and competing ethical standards that bind city managers.
The use of graphic images raises a variety of ethical considerations. Put them in focus with an opening presentation and small-group breakouts.
