Conflict of Interest Policy

Whenever a director or officer has a financial or personal interest in any matter coming before the CAEA State Council, the Council shall ensure that:

  1. The interest of such officer or director is fully disclosed to the State Council.

  2. No interested State Council member may vote or lobby on the matter or be counted in determining the existence of a quorum at the meeting of the State Council at which such matter is voted upon.

  3. Any transaction in which a State Council member has a financial or personal interest shall be duly approved by members of the State Council not so interested or connected as being in the best interests of the organization.

  4. Payments to the interested State Council member shall be reasonable and shall not exceed fair market value.

  5. The minutes of meetings at which such votes are taken shall record such disclosure, abstention, and rationale for approval.
