CONDUCT AND ETHICS
We will conduct our business affairs in the best interest of the association and our sport. We will comply with the laws governing our business without exception. Where there is any doubt, we will follow our fundamental sense of right and wrong.
We compete fairly and honestly. We do not engage in unethical, anti-competitive or illegal business practices. We will deal fairly and transparently with our customers, suppliers, competitors and agents. We will strive to serve as role model for other clubs, JVA and our sport.
We strive to provide equal opportunity in all aspects of employment and will not tolerate discrimination or harassment of any kind. Derogatory comments based on racial or ethnic characteristics, unwelcome sexual advances and similar behaviors are prohibited. The diversity of our directors, employees, independent contractors, volunteers and others are tremendous assets to our association and our sport.
HEALTH AND SAFETY
We strive to provide a safe and healthful work, training and competition environment by following safety and health rules and practices. We do not permit violence or threatening behavior.
The good name and reputation of our association and all our member clubs depend, to a very large extent, upon each club taking personal responsibility for maintaining and adhering to the guidelines set forth in this Code. Your business conduct and your personal conduct must be guided by the guidelines set for in this Code with a focus of always doing the right thing.
