6th Annual Moral & Ethical Leadership Conference

Salt Lake
Oct 20 - 29, 2020, 11:00 AM (MDT)

About this event

**Conference sessions 1-3 available here.**

**Conference session 4 "Thrive" details here.**

To further our mission to “promote moral and ethical leadership,” the Salt Lake Chapter of the BYU Management Society (BYUMS) held its inaugural Moral and Ethical Leadership Conference (MEL) in Salt Lake City, UT six years ago. Drawing from business, government, and education leaders year after year, its purpose is to provide the inspiration, education, and connections that our attendees need to explore the role of morals and ethics in a globalized world. Fitting for our experience during 2020, our conference theme is “Rise Up to Meet Our Challenges."

Millions of individuals worldwide, like you, embrace ethical conduct and are concerned about the negative trends they see. We know you welcome an opportunity to associate with an institution that could:

  • Leverage your ability to influence reversing the decline of moral standards
  • Expand your sphere of influence and advance your leadership opportunities
  • Provide you with a means of developing and deepening relationship with others who share your values

Therefore, we seek to envision, create, and sustain an organizational structure that meets that need. We likewise seek to affiliate with individuals and institutions that can accelerate our ability to fulfill our vision.

Rise Up to Meet Our Challenges

Considering the COVID-19 health crisis and prioritizing the well-being and safety of our attendees, community, and the residents of Utah, we are making changes to the MEL conference. For the first time in our 6-year history, MEL will not host an in-person event. Instead, we are creating a new online event that will take place over the course of four days: October 20, 22, 27, and 29, 2020. This coincides with Carnegie Council's Global Ethics Day (#GlobalEthicsDay2020) taking place on October 21.

Being online allows us to invite more people to be part of the experience. With travel costs eliminated, we can reach attendees across the nation and all around the globe.

We’re excited to invite you all to co-create this online event with us and inspire all of us to "Rise Up to Meet Our Challenges."

Continuing Professional Education Credits for CPAs

This conference is pre-approved for 4.0 CPE credits, including 2.0 ethics credits by the Utah Association of Certified Public Accountants. Please email with us at BYUMSOctoberCPE@gmail.com CPE questions.
