      SHRM’s Model Code of Ethics for Chapters

                   As a member of the CHAPTER, I pledge myself to: 

      • Maintain the highest standards of professional and personal conduct.
      • Support the Chapter’s goals and objectives for developing the human resource management profession.
      •  Refrain from using my official positions, either business or volunteer, to secure special privilege, gain or benefit for my organization or myself. 
      • Maintain the confidentiality of privileged information. 
      • Respect the rights and privacy of Chapter members and their reasonable expectation of privacy. 
      • Avoid soliciting or distributing information deemed to be a “sales pitch” to Chapter members.
