VOLUNTEER CONSENT FORM

In consideration for my participation in the Service MS program, I freely accept and voluntarily assume the risks of personal injury or property damage that may arise as a result of my participation. In addition I further agree to hold harmless the National MS Society, corporate sponsors, cooperating organizations and all parties connected with this program activity from any liability as a result of my participation. I will permit emergency treatment in the event of injury or illness while participating and give permission to use my name and photo taken of me during the event in any promotional material, publication, or on the website. I understand that the National Multiple Sclerosis Society withholds the right to dismiss anyone that may cause disturbance or deliberately disregard established rules and guidelines. I certify that I have read and understand the intent of this waiver and release.

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.

CODE OF CONDUCT

It is expected that volunteers and staff of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society will operate in a manner that is in the best interest of the Society. To maintain the highest standards of conduct and ethical behavior practiced by and expected of the Society and with respect to management of its own affairs, the Society adopts the following Code of Conduct.

Volunteers and staff members shall:

  1. Authorize the use of the name, emblem, endorsement, services, or property of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society only to advance the mission of the Society and in conformance with Society policy;
  2. Seek financial or other resources solely in the best interests of the Society. No volunteer or staff member shall accept or seek on behalf of self or any other person, any financial advantage or gain of other than nominal value offered as a result of the volunteer or staff member’s Society affiliation;
  3. Use association with the Society in public events only to advance the mission of the Society. No 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 Society’s position;
  4. Maintain the confidentiality and privacy standards of the Society. No volunteer or staff member may disclose any Society information that is available solely as a result of affiliation with the Society to any person not authorized to receive such information or use to the disadvantage of the Society or any of its members, clients, or donors any such confidential information, without the express authorization of the Society;
  5. 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 on any corporation or entity in which the individual has an interest or affiliation;
  6. Deal with issues of fund raising and compensation of fund raisers in accordance with the high ethical standards of the fund-raising profession. Compensation shall be fair and market-related. In the event that the volunteers or staff members’ obligation to operate in the best interests of the Society conflicts with the interests of any organization in which they have an interest, financial or otherwise, or with which they are affiliated, they shall disclose such conflict to the Society as soon as they become aware of it, shall absent themselves from the room during deliberations, and shall refrain from participating in decision making in connection with the matter. Disclosure shall be made annually by volunteers and staff of direct or indirect benefits that are being received as a result of the organization’s agreements with any outside party.
