This means there's some changes you should consider while you're studying for your upcoming AICP Exam. Those updates are summarized below:
"The Aspirational Principles were organized into logical groupings to highlight the planners’ role in serving the public interest.
Additionally, changes to the Principles:
• More fully account for the planners’ role in social justice and racial equity while accepting our responsibility to eliminate historic patterns of inequity tied to planning decisions
• Respect the rights of others and prohibit discrimination against or harassment of others
• Increase opportunities for members of underrepresented groups to become professional planners
The Rules of Conduct were organized into logical groupings to increase clarity for compliance.
Additionally, changes to the Rules:
• Eliminate geographic inconsistencies for how the Rules of Conduct are enforced
• Clarify types of additional employment that would create an actual or perceived conflict of interest
• Require an AICP member to cooperate with the AICP Ethics Officer if they have information relevant to a charge filed against another AICP member."
