CoLab 18 at Nova Place on the North Shore

Approved for 1.5 CFRE credits

AFP’s Code of Ethical Principles is both eloquent and essential.  But translating those principles into every day practice or decisions is not always clear cut and there are consequences.  From headline-grabbing controversies to seemingly simple matters that may lead to larger concerns, every fundraiser will face some difficult situations over the course of their careers.

How do you learn to navigate ethical dilemmas?  Ask for help!  As the proverb says, "to know the road ahead, ask those coming back."  No matter what you’re facing, you’re not alone.  Join Arthur Scully and Lizz Helmsen, Managing Directors at Carter, as they recount issues that they’ve encountered (and have lived to tell the tales).
