    The AIA Oath should be short and to the point, such as the Boy Scouts of Americas Scout Oat and Scout Law.

    Dear Edward, Judson and all
    Thank you for your comments.
    I agree the Oath should be short and also would be similar to the FAIA during Installation Ceremony.
    The Oath is now being put into a narrative form and I will send on shortly.

    Colleagues,

    I look forward to seeing the draft. 

    For the record, I stand with Doug Kelbaugh on the necessity to reference climate change, as the continuing population growth and urbanization of our country and our planet will necessitate responsible practice and leadership to reduce the adverse impacts of our work as a profession.

    Best Regards,

    Dear all
    Attached is the narrative for the Oath for Architects.  I am tried to include comments from many of you while keeping the Oath as short as possible.  My concerns were to avoid being political or religious. At the same time, to indicate issues we have for the future or our profession, mankind and our planet.
    Please see below.
    Thank you

    Oath for Architects

    I,                                              , hereby take this oath of commitment to the following principles:

    I will maintain the highest ethical and moral standards in my life and in my present or future architectural practice. 

    I will use my profession for the good of our planet and humanity.

    I will practice architecture according to its core aim to provide substantial human shelter and enriched quality of life for all human beings.

    I will treat clients, allied professionals inside and outside of my industry, and the general public with respect, honesty, and integrity. 

    I will respect diverse socioeconomic identities, gender issues and rights and will not discriminate by race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, or any other basis of discrimination prohibited by law. 

    I will strive to be an enlightened, passionate steward of the built and natural environments and will practice wise use and conservation of Earth's natural resources. 

    I will pass on to the next generation our responsibility to do good for the world through universal, sustainable design that meets the needs of all humankind and protects our natural environment.

    By taking this oath, I have accepted my duty toward the betterment of civilization, its structures, its communities, its ecosystems, and our world.

    My only comment is the reference to meeting the highest standards. which makes a legal claim that could expose us to undue liability.  Otherwise, this is a good piece.
