Strength of Character | Integrity | Honesty | Ethical Conduct

Do you know how to tackle difficult situations that pose ethical dilemmas in your professional life? Did you know that IEDC adopted a Code of Ethics in 2008? Does your organization have a code of conduct and do you know how to develop one? Economic developers encounter numerous situations on a regular basis that require sound judgment and strength of character. The IEDC Code of Ethics can help you through the decision making process. This webinar will provide instruction on ethics for economic development professionals, dealing with ethical dilemmas and use case study examples to boost learning among participants on ethical decision making in tough situations.

Ethics Training is a Part of the CEcD Recertification Process

Certified Economic Developers (CEcDs) are required to have 2 hours of ethics training to be eligible for recertification. Participation in this web seminar fulfills the ethics training requirement.
