Code of Conduct
This Code of Conduct (the “Code”) sets out the standards of personal behavior and conduct required of directors of co-operative. A co-operative’s governing document should refer to this Code, confirm its approval by its board and require its board to adopt it and to enforce compliance with it. Every existing director of a co-operative must sign an acknowledgement accepting his or her obligation to comply with this Code in its entirety. Candidates seeking election as a director will be asked to confirm that they have read and understood it, and, if elected, must sign a similar acknowledgement confirming their obligation to comply with it.
