                        Eastern Chapter of the Structural

                         Engineers Association of Pennsylvania

         "A Mock Administrative Licensing Hearing Focusing On Structural Engineering Ethics                     and the Code of Conduct"

                            Presented By: Anthony S. Potter, Powell, Trachtman, P.C.       

This presentation will be an interactive mock hearing focused on a hypothetical building case study from the City of Philadelphia.  The hearing will be complete with a Professional Licensure Prosecuting Engineer, a Defense expert engineer and a hearing examiner.  The professional and ethical review objectives will be to:

1. Identify the Ethical and Code of Conduct Issues presented by the case;
2. Analyze the course of professional conduct mandated by the Code of Ethics; and
3. Discuss an appropriate framework for resolving the professional and ethical issues presented.

This hypothetical case involves the structural design of a new structural steel mezzanine system supported by the existing upper floor level within an attic space of a historic century old manufacturing building near downtown Philadelphia. 

As originally designed and as part of the architectural design concept, hot-rolled structural steel framing members were shown on the approved permit drawings.  As value-engineered and designed by a second structural engineer on behalf of the construction manager, a less than structurally adequate as-built framing system was installed.  This ethics seminar will review and discuss the various consequences of this less than code-compliant mezzanine design and installation.

About Our Speaker:
  Anthony S. Potter is an attorney practicing in the Harrisburg Office of Powell, Trachtman, P.C.  Mr. Potter focuses his practice on representation of design professionals in all phases of the construction process including contracting, allocating risks, pre-claim resolution, mediation, arbitration, and construction litigation.  In addition, Mr. Potter provides counsel and representation to architects, engineers, registered landscape architects and other design professionals on administrative law, professional ethics and professional licensing matters.  Mr. Potter acts as general counsel to AIA Pennsylvania, a position he has held since 2003.  He serves as a member of the Advisory Board for the Civil Engineering and Structural Design and Construction Engineering Technology Programs at Penn State Harrisburg.  In 2014, Mr. Potter received AIA Pennsylvania's Award for Contribution to the Profession by a Non-Architect, which is the highest award given by AIA Pennsylvania to an individual who is not an Architect.   

Mr. Potter is frequently called upon to provide seminars for design professionals and architectural and engineering students on professional licensing and ethical codes of conduct, loss prevention, standard form construction contract documents, and construction litigation.  He has conducted ethics seminars at universities including Penn State and Drexel University, in-house seminars for large architectural and engineering firms and governmental agencies including the Delaware Association of Professional Engineers (the State Licensing Board in Delaware) and the National Security Agency.  Mr. Potter has presented at AIA National Convention including participating on an Ethics Jeopardy panel in 2016 hosted by NCARB. Before joining Powell Trachtman, Mr. Potter was Assistant General Counsel to Governor Tom Ridge.  Mr. Potter is admitted to practice law in Pennsylvania, Maryland, the US District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania, the US Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, and the Supreme Court of the United States. He received his law degree with honors from Widener University School of Law in 1995 and his undergraduate degree in Political Science from Millersville University in 1991.
