In “Real Life Ethical Dilemmas for the Practicing Architect”, attendees will engage in an interactive discussion regarding the basic ethical rules which apply to all licensed Architects and apply those rules to hypothetical situations. Mr. Heiberg will discuss many of the “hot button” topics in today’s business climate such as Multi-jurisdictional practice, conflicts of interest, plan certification, ethical solutions to getting paid, and licensing compliance. We will then look a real situations where practicing architects ran into trouble and discuss how to navigate the situations within the rules.
As a practicing attorney who has represented numerous licensees before the Minnesota Board and throughout payment and performance disputes, Mr. Heiberg has a unique perspective on maintaining high ethical standards while operating your practice as a business.
1. What are the most common mistakes that can jeopardize an Architect’s licensure?
2. What does an Architect’s seal on a document mean and what are the rules for stamping documents?

4. What are the requirements for an Architect under the Minnesota Code of Conduct and how do those affect your business?
