The Ethics Committee offers a knowledge base and mediating service for clients or peers who question an architect’s professionalism, integrity or competence according to the AIA Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct (2012). The three elected members of this committee also are responsible for making recommendations to the BSA board regarding all matters pertaining to the professional ethics of the organization.

Past Events

May 2, 2017 | 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Brad Walker AIA will lead a discussion on the ethical underpinnings of the profession of architecture, including the inherent tension between the architect’s duty to uphold the public’s interest in the built environment and the artist’s duty to be, well, undutiful.

Against that backdrop, this talk, followed by a question and answer session, will pay particular attention to the seemingly more prosaic relationship between employers and employees and what may be some surprising points in the AIA Code of Ethics.

For those who qualify, 2.0 LU/HSWs are available.
