Every day planners are faced with ethical issues. Sometimes the issues seem small, sometimes overwhelming. Regardless of how big the issue is, planners must address these issues honestly, forthrightly and as soon as practicable in order to maintain our personal and professional integrity.  Join us for a lively, interactive conversation about all too real ethical dilemmas.  Bring your own war stories to share and discuss with the group.

The session will include a brief presentation of the AICP Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct. Discussion about ethical situations will refer back to the AICP Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct as a starting point for evaluation of how to handle ethical dilemmas.
