    Code of Ethics & Conflict of Interest Policies

    NSGC operates under a body of governing documents, including a set of policies that establish guidelines and boundaries for the operations and work of the Society, its volunteer leaders and staff. 

    NSGC’s existing policies are reviewed by the NSGC Board of Directors at a minimum, annually with input from other key individuals involved in the area of work addressed by the policy.

    NSGC has developed a code of ethics and a number of policies addressing conflict of interest (COI) related to education, practice guidelines, volunteer involvement, commercial support and professional practice.
