CHRA's Code of Conduct


Policy - Discrimination and Harassment

CHRA’s goal is to provide an organizational environment for its members which is free from discrimination or harassment on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, marital status, sexual orientation and gender identity, or disability. Harassment can include derogatory statements, conduct or treatment relating to a member’s race, color, religion, sex, age or disability.


If a member believes in good faith that he or she was discriminated against or harassed by any member executing official duties on behalf of CHRA, the member should report the incident immediately to the Executive Director and President of CHRA (first preference), or to any other member of the CHRA Board, who will then report it to the CHRA Ethics Committee. The CHRA Ethics Committee, and if necessary legal counsel, will conduct a thorough investigation and recommend or take any appropriate action. CHRA will maintain confidentiality of the complaint to the extent possible, commensurate with the need to investigate and resolve reported problems. CHRA will not retaliate against a member who files a good faith report of discrimination or harassment. If a member feels they have been retaliated against, they are encouraged to use this same reporting method and it is suggested a different board member is notified.


Policy - Ethics Committee

CHRA’s Ethics Committee shall consist of the CHRA Executive Committee: President, President-Elect, Secretary/Treasurer and Immediate Past President. The Ethics committee will receive and, if necessary, investigate any complaints or reports regarding the actions of a CHRA member and take any appropriate action which may consist of filing the report in association records and/or contacting the member in which the complaint was made against to discuss corrective actions.
