2.  Seek financial or other resources in the name of the Society, in the best interests of the Society.    No trustee, leadership volunteer, or staff member shall accept personal gifts or gratuities (other than very small, inconsequential benefits) from a supplier of goods, equipment or services. 

3.  Not knowingly take any action or make any statement intended to influence the conduct of the Society in such a way as to confer any financial benefit on such person or any corporation or entity in which the individual has an interest or affiliation. Trustees, leadership volunteers and staff shall scrupulously avoid any conflict between their own respective personal, professional or business interests and the interests of the Society.   Among other circumstances, potential conflicts of interest may exist whenever a trustee, a leadership volunteer or staff member, or an employee of such person or a member of his or her family has an interest in a business transaction or proposed transaction involving the Society.

4. Use association with the Society in public events only to advance the mission of the Society.  No trustee, leadership volunteer or staff member shall publicly utilize any Society affiliation in connection with the promotion of partisan politics, religious matters, or positions on any issue not in conformity with the position of the Society;

5. Maintain the confidentiality and privacy standards of the Society.  No trustee, leadership volunteer or staff member may disclose or reveal or use confidential or proprietary information of the Society or its clients without express authorization.

6.  Not use information regarding or acquired as a result of Society relationships with corporations, or government agencies, or their employees or other sources to buy, sell, or otherwise make transactions of stock, securities or other assets of corporations, their subsidiaries, parents, or competitors or otherwise act for personal benefit or gain themselves or their relatives, friends or business associates.

7.  Periodically affirm in writing upon request of the President of the Society or its Chapters that he or she has received, read and understands and agrees to be bound by this Code of Conduct.

Question - Required - This Code is intended to help members of the National and Chapter boards, other leadership volunteers and staff avoid situations that could compromise the integrity and independence of the Society's decision-making processes, or compromise the Society's reputation or public confidence in the Society.

 Confidentiality Statement 

 

To the degree I may be given access to the identity and details of persons with multiple sclerosis and their families or other confidential business of the Society, I agree to safeguard such information in strict confidence. I also recognize that the chapter programs director, or her/his designee, provides continuing direction and counsel as to the proper use of confidential information.
