ASPA Code of Ethics Review

May 16, 2012 at 1 pm ET – ASPA Code of Ethics Review – FREE

ASPA is offering this webinar for free. The first part of this webinar will cover ethical theory and the need for ethics in the public sector. It will then move to ASPA’s code of ethics and its review which was last revised in 1994. What elements of the existing code should be reaffirmed? What new features should be added? Should the format of the Code be changed? The presenters will address the process used by the working group, what the working group has accomplished to date, and then open the session up for feedback and comments/suggestions from participants. Also included will be input into the working group’s final recommendations that will be presented to the National Council for action in September, 2012.
