Discussion Question

The Society affirms its responsibility to develop the spirit of professionalism within its membership, and to increase public awareness of ethical principles in public service by its example.” You can read their specific code of ethics on this website. 
Additionally, the National Academy of Public Administration has a good model code of ethics that you may find useful as you work on this assignment. The Olsson Center for Applied Ethics has information about public sector and government ethics generally, including examples. It also offers training for public employees.
