The Louisiana Chapter of the ASCE Transportation and Development Institute (T&DI) is pleased to announce our annual Zoom Ethics Seminar. One (1) Professional Development Hour (PDH) can be earned by attending this seminar.
The following presents an Abstract and our Speaker's Bio:
Our common purpose as professional engineers is to safeguard life, health, and property and to promote the public welfare. Professional ethics concerns the standard of professional conduct and responsibility required of a professional engineer. Our discussion will address issues like perception of wrong-doing, correcting mistakes, character, competency, accountability, conflicts of interest, trust, integrity, and avoiding deceptive acts.
