If you are working in a small community (whether in size or in spirit), your recommendations are most likely to affect your neighbors, someone at your kid’s school, your church, someone from the youth sports association, and so on. Also, as a planner in a small community you are more likely to be short on resources that larger planning departments may take for granted but are still expected to produce the same quality work. This program will take a look at the crazy and sometimes scary world of planners and share some realistic tips for planners on dealing with your work-related situations ethically. Chad Nabity, AICP, and David r. Gattis, FAICP lead the 90 minute discussion on ethical planning and small towns. Includes dinner. Located at the Hard Rock Cafe, 215 Peachtree St. NE, Atlanta.
