Members of the Executive Compensation Committee and Staff Resources are committed to working together as a team in the best interests of the Institute, to achieve the duties for which it has been mandated.

Members of the Executive Compensation Committee agree to:

  • Act honestly, ethically and with integrity, exercise care, diligence and skill and fulfill their responsibilities to the best of their abilities.
  • Act in the best interests of the organization, avoid conflict of interest and work to build consensus.
  • Respect the decisions of the Committee, support its recommendations and work toward its goals.
  • Act with courtesy and civility, listen in a fair and open manner and respect other’s views.
  • Respect the confidential and sensitive nature of documents reviewed and issues discussed.  For greater clarity, Members of the Committee are to be mindful that they report solely to the Board of Directors and should not disclose any information obtained in the course of the Committee’s work and deliberations except as directed to do so by the Board of Directors. 
  • Any breach of confidentiality may lead to immediate removal from the Committee and to discipline up to and including expulsion in accordance with the Institute’s By-laws.  As the ECC are in a position of trust and deals with very sensitive issues related to staff and Elected Officials and their compensation, this expectation of confidentiality extends in perpetuity, beyond just the term of the ECC member.
  • Devote the time and effort to be sufficiently prepared for meetings and to remain engaged and participative during discussions and decision making.
  • It is the Chair’s responsibility to ensure that meetings take place in an orderly fashion, that relevant information is shared with all of the members of the Committee and that the views of all members are heard.
  • All documents provided to the Committee members as part of their deliberations belong to the Institute and must be returned to the Staff Resource on completion of the member’s term.

Concerns regarding actions that do not comply with these principles should be discussed in a timely manner, with the member, with the Chair or with the Committee as a whole.  Every effort should be made to resolve issues in the best interest of the Committee and the Institute

I agree to abide by these Principles of Conduct:
