USATF Code of Ethics
USATF has developed a Code of Ethics that applies to its Board, National Office employees, independent contractors, and chairs and members of committees, sub-committees, councils, task forces and any other decision-making body of USATF. The Code will be effective on January 1, 2007.
Because USATF operates in the public spotlight and is expected to conduct business on an ethical basis, we must ensure that our leadership never puts, nor is it perceived they have ever put, personal interests ahead of or in conflict with the interests of USATF. No Code of Ethics can substitute for each person's own internal sense of fairness, honesty, and integrity. Therefore, it is important that every person representing USATF support the values and principles that are critical to USATF's continuing tradition of excellence.
Shortly after the first of the year, an ethics help line and/or confidential online reporting mechanism will be available to report concerns. Reports made through the help line and online may be made anonymously. Any member of the Ethics Committee or their National Office liaison are always available to answer questions.
