Join us for a journey of decision making through scenarios that challenge the AFP Code of Ethical Standards throughout the course of a fundraiser’s day at work. In this interactive session, participants will work together to identify how decisions in each scenario relate to the standards and how certain actions violate the standards. Best practices for handling each ethical situation in a way that upholds the standards will be discussed.

During this session, you will:

  • Understand your responsibility to uphold the AFP Code of Ethical Standards.
  • Gain knowledge to identify violations to the AFP Code of Ethical Standards.
  • Learn and discuss best practices for handling ethical situations in ways that uphold the AFP Code of Ethical Standards.
