Understanding the New DBIA Code of Conduct

May 11, 2017 2:30pm ‐ May 11, 2017 3:30pm

Identification: WEB170511

Credits: None available.

Beginning June 1, 2017, DBIA’s new Code of Professional Conduct will become effective. While all DBIA members are encouraged and expected to adhere to the Code, those holding the DBIA™ and Assoc. DBIA™ credentials will be subject to enforcement of the Code and possible disciplinary action resulting from violations of the Code. Since DBIA’s inception in 1993 our members have been dedicated to the highest level of ethical conduct, professionalism and service. With the increased use of design-build project delivery and the increased recognition of DBIA™ certified professionals, the professional conduct of DBIA members and, in particular, credential holders, is more important than ever.

In this seminar you will:

  • Discuss the importance of a robust Code of Professional Conduct to the design-build profession.
  • Review the key elements of the Code of Professional Conduct including the rules, comments and enforcement.
  • Understand the basis for a complaint and/or appeal.
  • Discuss procedures by which credential holders will be required to attest to their agreement of the Code.

Leadership Matters

Jan 31, 2018 1:30pm ‐ Jan 31, 2018 3:00pm

Identification: WEB180131

Credits: None available.

In the design and construction industry we have primarily focused on management as the predominant skillset needed for success. However, the old model of simply “planning the work, and working the plan,” is no longer all that is needed to success in our business. As an industry, we need to shift from being order takers, to being value generators, and that requires far more than management skills.  What is missing and needed is a new kind of leadership, capable of influencing and inspiring real change to impact the cultural traditions and behaviors that have hindered our industry and stifled real innovation for far too long. 


  • You will distinguish between management and leadership and learn why leadership matters most, especially today.
  • You will learn the five practices of exemplary leadership and why they make a difference.
  • You will learn what people look for in their leaders and how to develop those attributes in yourself
  • You will learn how to establish credibility as a leader, at every level, no matter what your current rank or position.

Most people think that presence is something you are just born with. Not true. Presence is actually a set of skills, both internal and external that virtually anyone can develop and improve. Presence impacts how you show up, how you connect, and how you speak. However, it’s not easy to make these improvements. It requires giving up some bad habits and changing some behaviors. But the investment is worth it if you want to build trust and credibility, and strengthen your relationships to enhance collaboration. Bottom line, developing presence will make you a more effective leader.
