Nonprofit membership organizations have been increasingly active when it comes to regulating conduct and ethics of members, both in their professional roles and in connection with association activities. When done properly, this effort can serve to enhance the value of membership and the public impression of the association’s industry or profession. However, this practice can carry legal risk if the proper procedures are not followed. Join us for this webinar as we share:

  • Tips for developing and enhancing an enforceable code
  • Creating and following a procedural framework that is both workable and legally defensible
  • Identifying the different considerations that can arise when enforcing a code that applies to members, certification holders, and association leaders
