A Year of Conversation on the Future of

Practical and Professional Ethics

In preparation for the 25th Anniversary of the APPE Annual Conference, the Association is launching a series of conversations, seminars and workshops to discuss the development of practical and professional ethics and explore future challenges and opportunities.  The Association invites members and friends to host these conversations at academic institutions, businesses, professional societies, conferences, government agencies and in community forums, with the aim of contributing to a data base of information that can help shape future educational and professional development.
