When is a free lunch not a free lunch? As Economic Developers we hold the public trust and need to carry out our duties in a manner that is above reproach. So how do we promote an ethical culture in our organization? What are the key components of an ethics program? How do we develop a Code of Conduct? What are some ethical issues that may arise in your economic development role?
This IEDC training session will:
• provide guidance on the importance of integrity in decision making;
• provide tools for making ethical decisions;
• discuss the 12 tenets of the IEDC Code of Ethics;
• use interactive case study examples to demonstrate ethical decision making in difficult situations; and
• describe the Policies and Procedures adopted by the Committee on Professional Conduct (CPC) for IEDC Code of Ethics enforcement
This workshop, while open to all conference attendees, is a recertification requirement for Certified Economic Developers (CEcDs). For more information on the CEcD certification, visit www.iedconline.org.
