Have you experienced or observed a construction industry-related act or transaction that you would consider unethical in the past year? If you answered “yes”, then you are among the vast majority of owners, architects, construction managers, contractors, subcontractors and others who have had experience with unethical acts in the construction industry. Besides the potential loss of dollars, the loss of trust may be even more detrimental. But how do we consider what is right and wrong in different circumstances or from different points of view and apply them to what we actually do when confronted with those circumstances?

Join us for a lively panel discussion on this important topic, which will provide insight into the different perspectives of this issue as well as real-world examples.

Through this program, you will gain an understanding of:

• Code of Ethics of the construction manager

• Ethics expectations from the perspectives of a construction contractor, a construction manager, an auditor, and an owner

• Challenges faced and strategies from the four perspectives
