The Committee on Professional Ethics is pleased to invite you to the 70th anniversary celebration of the ALA Code of Ethics! ALA adopted its first official code of ethics in 1939 and has remained committed to making the ethical principals that guide library work known to the profession and to the general public. This celebration will feature a keynote speech by prominent author Rushworth M. Kidder and also will launch ALA’s new ethics education initiative. Please join us for this very special event — featuring cake, punch, and a toast by ALA President Jim Rettig!
