Disclosure Requirements

Upon being appointed or elected to the Board, and annually thereafter, each Governor must complete an Acknowledgement and Agreement in which the Governor acknowledges and agrees that he or she has received a copy of the Code, will conscientiously and in good faith observe the provisions of the Code, and that a breach of the Code may result in remedial action, up to and including a request for resignation or a recommendation for removal from the Board.

Governors must update Disclosure Statements at any time that a Governor becomes aware of new or additional relevant information, or as required by changed circumstances.

In addition to filing a Disclosure Statement, all Governors have an ongoing duty to disclose an actual, potential or apparent conflict of interest as soon as the issue arises and before the Board or its committees deal with the matter at issue.
