A conflict of interest arises when an individual of the Organization is involved in multiple interests, financial or otherwise, and serving one interest could involve working against (conflicting) with another. 


Board Directors, employees and even volunteers, have a responsibility to ensure that the integrity of the Organization is appropriately considered with respect to all activities and decisions. It is imperative that, with these activities and decisions, conflicts of interest be strictly avoided so that the Organization is never placed in a compromising position. It is also important that all Board directors, employees and volunteers clearly understand their respective obligations to the Organization if an actual, perceived or potential conflict of interest situation arises. If a conflict situation does arise, board directors, employees or volunteers must immediately declare a conflict of interest and remove themselves from any related decision or activity.
