We received an inquiry regarding our Board Code of Conduct.
We have posted a copy below for the community's interest.
A CoC is an important part of internal Board governance.
Here are 2 websites that explain the importance of having a CoC.https://www.councilofnonprofits.org/tools-resources/code-of-ethics-nonprofitshttp://www.communitylearning.info/members/resource-guide/board-management/code-of-conduct.html
We welcome your comments, and suggestions to improve our Code.
