Conflicts of Interest

An association must ensure that it has a process in place to determine conflicts of interest among volunteer leaders and staff and a process to address potential conflicts. Conflicts must be determined and disclosed on a consistent and regular basis.

Per association policy:

1. TEMSA requires board members to provide conflicts of interest to the executive director at the beginning of each calendar year and in the middle of the calendar year.

2. The executive director will share the conflicts at the appropriate board meetings.

3. Board members understand that the response to a disclosure may range from documentation to a request for recusal or resignation. Resolution will be addressed at board meetings.
