February 10, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Recognizing the importance of ethics education for local government decision makers, planners, planning commissions, boards of zoning, as well as local government staff who work on comprehensive planning, zoning appeals, or architectural review, the Carl Vinson Institute of Government and GPA are offering a six-hour ethics class for planners and planning officials.

Key topics covered in the “201” course include:

  1. The purpose and goals of the AICP Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct and their relationship to ethical dilemmas and decisions in planning.
  2. How values, morality, virtue, character, and obligations play out in our everyday actions and decisions.
  3. How ethical dilemmas can arise whenever discretion is involved in policy or administrative decision making.
  4. How to apply principles of ethical decision making to resolve dilemmas.
  5. The moral dimensions, goals, virtues, and temptations of leadership.
  6. How public service is a moral and ethical enterprise.

The class will be held on February 10, 2017, 9:00 am – 4:00 pm, at the UGA Gwinnett Campus, 2530 Sever Road, Lawrenceville, Room #165. Class size is limited to 35. Up to up to 6 hours of AICP CM ethics credits are available. Register here.
