Conflict of Interest Policy

ALBA recognizes that its Board of Governors and employees have broad interests and participate in many community, charitable and business activities. While this is what makes them valuable to ALBA, it is possible that it may give rise to a conflict of interest with a Board member’s or employee’s professional or personal interests.

ALBA understands that the potential for conflict of interest needs to be recognized and disclosed, and appropriate steps taken to prevent influence or favoritism by any Board member or employee. To that end, Board members complete a conflict of interest disclosure statement on appointment and annually. A conflict of interest disclosure statement is completed by employees annually. Should any conflict of interest situation arise, it will be reported to and handled by ALBA’s Ethics Committee.
