Conflict of Interest Policy

Each Trustee must conduct all of his or her activities in such a way as to avoid any conflict between the Trustee's personal interests and the policies, operations, or interests of the Museum. Trustees with special areas of interest within the Museum should understand that advocacy for those interests should be advanced only within the framework of the Museum’s interests as a whole. In the event a conflict is unavoidable, the Trustee shall at all times act in a manner consistent with his or her fiduciary responsibility to the Museum and shall exercise particular care that no detriment or appearance of detriment to the Museum results from that conflict.

A Trustee is considered to have a conflict of interest when the Trustee, or any member of his or her immediate family:

(a) has a financial, personal, or professional interest which impairs or might appear to impair the Trustee's independence of judgment in the discharge of his or her responsibilities to the Museum.

(b) could receive a material financial, personal, or professional benefit from the knowledge of confidential Museum information.

(c) would receive financial compensation for personal or professional services rendered to the Museum without the prior approval of the Board of Trustees.
