Ethical Responsibility and Professional and Personal Conduct Code
The American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers (AFPM) has adopted the following Ethical Responsibility and Professional and Personal Conduct Code (hereinafter, the Code). Every member of AFPM, their designated representatives, and non-member attendees at all AFPM meetings and forums agree to abide by the Code as a condition of membership in AFPM and attendance and participation at AFPM meetings and forums.
The Code requires the following of all individuals attending AFPM meetings and forums:
Adherence to the AFPM bylaws and the AFPM policies and procedures, as adopted by AFPMs Board of Directors.
Strict compliance with antitrust laws.
Adherence to all applicable federal and state laws.
Maintenance of the highest level of professional and personal ethical behavior while attending AFPM meetings and forums.
Prevention of certain behaviors, including harassment, violence, intimidation and discrimination of any kind involving race, color, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, disability or, where applicable, veteran or marital status.
Assurance that conduct at all times and in all professional and personal dealings with each other and other attendees is with the highest level of integrity and courtesy.
Sharing of knowledge and expertise as speakers at AFPM educational events and sessions whenever practicable, without soliciting or explicitly promoting their own organization's products or services.
Working to instill public and consumer confidence in the petrochemical and refining industries, its member companies, and its professionals, avoiding any action conducive to discrediting members of AFPM.
Refraining from scheduling general attendance meetings, receptions or other events at times that conflict with substantive programming or social events at AFPM meetings without express written permission of AFPM.
Failure to abide by the Code may result, for the first offense, in informal censure of a company or individual by the AFPM Executive Committee. If violations of the Code continue after such an informal censure, a company may be subject to expulsion from AFPM, or an individual to exclusion from participation in AFPM activities, by the Board of Directors.
We ask your cooperation in observing Association policy on activities held in conjunction with any AFPM meeting:
Meetings or social activities should not be scheduled that take registrants away from AFPM programs and AFPM-sponsored activities;
Any company sponsoring a function to which 25 or more people are invited should outline its plans for advance approval by AFPM. In general, such functions will be approved if they do not unduly take registrants away from AFPM-sponsored activities.
