Code of Ethics

    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.
    • Practice networking and benchmarking in a professional manner, based upon sound business judgment and necessity, without infringing upon the privacy of Chapter members.
    • Abstain from using the Chapter’s Membership Directory to create group distribution e-mail and direct mail lists for the purpose of soliciting business.

    This Code of Ethics for members of the Chapter has been developed to promote and maintain the highest standards of personal and professional conduct among its members.  By joining the Chapter, a member endorses and agrees to abide by this Code of Ethics, thereby assuring public confidence in the integrity and service of the human resource management profession.

    A violation of this Code of Ethics could jeopardize your membership in Chapter.  Adapted from SHRM Code of Ethics
