July 21, 2007 CODE OF ETHICS We will act with integrity and dignity in dealings with other members and with the public, and will encourage each other to act in a professional and ethical manner that will reflect credit upon ourselves and the KWVA. We will refrain from all verbal or written criticism of another member of the Department ‘or a Chapter. Disagreements, pettiness, personality clashes, disputes etc are to be worked out between the parties or in the case of a major dispute, mediated by an independent party appointed by the Judge Advocate, either on a Department or Chapter level, as required. Disputes or criticism are never to be aired in Chapter or Department Newsletters or email transmissions without exception. Each individual member of the Florida Department of the KWVA will strive to maintain and improve the image of our Department and each Chapter in the Department. No member shall for any reason, encourage or otherwise participate in the formation of another Chapter in direct competition with an existing Chapter in a particular area. If ‘a member is unhappy or dissatisties, the ethics rule #3 should apply. Above all, the use of reasonable and common sense judgment is encouraged. As with any code or set of rules, the above does not cover each and every situation and are simply guidelines to be followed. By doing so, we will create a positive image for each other, the public perception and for future KWVA members. V.N. “Buck” Rogers, DoF Chaplain May 2000
