Code of Conduct
The Administrative Council ("AC") participates and deliberates with the following principles:
- Administrative Council members are required to state conflict-of-interest positions and remove themselves from decision-making processes.
- Diversity of opinion is encouraged, expected, accepted and regarded as valuable.
- Administrative Council decisions (whether by consensus or majority vote) are collective positions and are not necessarily reflective of any individual AC member’s position.
- Voting against or abstaining from a vote on a motion is a legitimate expression of dissent or uncertainty on an issue.
- Opinions presented to the public and media represent collective decisions reached by the Administrative Council. Requests for this type of information should be made known to the President and Officers. The spokesperson should be the President (or his/her designate).
- Debate and disagreement is healthy and encouraged but after an open discussion and a democratic decision making process, all members will accept and publicly support the collective decision that has been reached.
- A member of the AC, speaking individually or on “behalf” of the Administrative Council, who is against a collective decision will refrain from criticizing or speaking on that issue in any forum.
- AC members are to refrain from public criticism of the Organization whether as a personal opinion or on “behalf” of the AC.
- AC members should resign from the Administrative Council if they find that they cannot abide by the above-noted principles.
- The Administrative Council reserves the right to rescind an Officer's membership as a result of a continuous inability to abide with the above-noted principles and procedures.
