  • Your center’s mission, vision, values statements and/or value proposition

Announcement

 

The Association for Practical and Professional Ethics is pleased to announce the 2016 Ethics Center Directors Summit. This year’s pre-conference workshop, “Engaging Constituents: Moving Forward with Purpose” will precede the main program of the 25th Annual Meeting of the Association for Practical and Professional Ethics (APPE) in Reston, Virginia.

While a heightened awareness of ethics education seems to be spreading in the wake of high-profile scandals such as the Volkswagen emissions fraud, an important question remains: How do we harness the power of this growing awareness to support our Centers and ethics programs?

This hands-on workshop will assist directors in engaging their constituents by giving them practical tools and tips to increase their influence. We’ll learn how to tell our Center’s unique story better, explore grant funding, and share assessment tools and strategies.

 

For the workshop to be impactful, participants should bring for discussion:

  • An example of your marketing materials (an annual report, one-pager, article about your center, etc.)
  • An example of an assessment tool (and the data gathered) that you’ve used for a program, a project, to measure your Center’s overall work, etc.

 

One of the greatest benefits of the day is the camaraderie and relationships developed among Center Directors. Please join us in this pre-conference workshop which will take place on February 18th, 2016, from 8:30 am to 4 pm. Registration for the Ethics Center Director Summit includes continental breakfast, lunch, coffee and breaks.  

 

The cost for the Summit is inclusive (includes meals) and is:

Members:

On time Registration - $110

Late Registration (after January 18th) - $140
