The Ethics Committee of the American Institute of Certified Planners has developed a "Case of The Year" for use in ethics training. The 2015–2016 case was crafted from the compliled expertise and experience of Ethics Committee members and represents a real world approach to ethics training. 

The session explores the ethical dilemmas, issues, and duties of planners in a fictional town where a major national retailer has applied to construct a big box discount store.

You'll learn about:

  • Content within the AICP Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct
  • How to apply ethical principles of planning to real world ethical scenarios
  • Procedures under the Code of Ethics
