Join us…

See the Code of Ethics Project page for whether this is likely to be of use to you. You do not need to have any expertise in the nuances of codes of ethics, just a motive to learn more or a general interest in the topic. If you have a particular perspective you can share, all the better but it is not essential.

We particularly welcome participation by people with responsibility for producing, maintaining or implementing a particular code – or those thinking about whether their organization should have one.

There is no fee, but we need to know numbers for catering purposes and because the room is of fixed size. If you are interested in participating contact by end of Friday January 19th 2018 (i.e. one week in advance), or earlier to be sure of a place.
