Ethics Committee

 

The Ethics Committee functions differently than other committees due to its specific focus and purpose. The primary responsibility of the committee is to review board members and volunteers to ensure that NAMA is operating as a transparent organization free of overt and covert conflicts of interest.

 

The Ethics Committee Chair rotates to a board member who serves on the committee for a six-month term. The committee membership rotates every six months and is comprised of three board members and three outside, non-NAMA members.

  • The committee annually reviews and assesses all Conflict of Interest Disclosure forms for board members and volunteers.
  • Every six (6) months -- in May and November -- three (3) new board members replace the current board members serving on the committee.
  • The Ethics Committee provides recommendations to the board for acceptance, remediation or declination of acceptance based on information assessed. The board then makes the final determination.
