MORE COURSE DETAILS

Explore the ethical responsibilities of planners in the very real world of bidding for and awarding work. This session compares the multiple components of the proposal process to the AICP Code of Ethics from the point of view of planners in both the public (those letting planning contracts) and private (those bidding on contracts) sectors.
