APPI Webinar - Think it won't happen to you? Think Again! Lessons from the Discipline Committee
This session will provide an overview of the Professional Code of Practice governing regulated planners in the APPI jurisdiction. The code will be the central focus of the course and will be used to generate group discussion about issues confronting planners working in the public service and private industry. This discussion will help planners address a range of questions including:
Who to go to for advice?
How does the Code provide a moral/ethical foundation?
How can APPI help with difficult issues?
