Planning Ethics for the Real World: Webinar, May 20, 2 pm eastern

Professional Development Institute, Rutgers University


Planning ethics is more than refusing gifts or meals from developers. Learn about how to think systematically and critically about ethical issues in planning at an interactive webinar sponsored by Rutgers University's Professional Development Institute. Against the backdrop of the American Institute of Certified Planners (AICP) Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct, one professional ethicist and two professional planners/academics will examine a series of 14 provocative case studies drawn from real world situations. You'll also find out how the AICP code stacks up against ethics rules in the two states that license or register planners, New Jersey and Michigan.

PDI Learning Labs are live, interactive sessions that give you the opportunity to ask questions and share comments with speakers and colleagues. Participants can interact via text chat or conference call.
