Join us on November 12 for a discussion on how to resolve some of the most difficult problems you will deal with as a consultant: ethical dilemmas you may encounter as you work on your clients’ important issues. At this session, you will learn how to make courageous choices among competing interests for your clients and your practice.
A panel of experts will tackle representative client cases and those that you present to seek resolution of presenting ethical issues. The panel will be lead by Bill Katz, CMC, our Chapter Certification Chair; and include Brooks Hilliard, CMC, CCP, Chair of IMC USA’s Ethics Committee; Jim Soudriette, CMC, Senior Board Advisor, IMC AZ, and Kay Sever, CMC, President-elect, IMC AZ.
When you register for this meeting, please think about any important issues you would like the panel to address and note them in the remarks section of your registration or send them by e-mail to Bill Katz firstname.lastname@example.org.
