Code of Ethics

The AIC Code of Ethics is the centerpiece of the Institute’s mission and goals. The promotion of ethical conduct and professionalism among Constructors is essential to the standing of the construction profession, and we welcome as members all professionals who share this belief.

If you are looking to make a personal committment to these principles, then you should consider applying for membership.

The “AIC” designation that our constructor members use after their names is a symbol of their dedication to Code of Ethics and the elevation of the profession through individual excellence.
