After disclosure of the financial interest, the interested person shall leave the board meeting while the financial interest is discussed and voted upon.  The remaining board members shall decide if a conflict of interest exists.

If the Board has reasonable cause to believe that a director has failed to disclose actual or potential conflicts of interest, it shall inform the director of the basis for such belief and afford the director an opportunity to explain the alleged failure to disclose. If, after hearing the response of the director and making such further investigation as may be warranted in the circumstances, the board determines that the director has in fact failed to disclose an actual or possible conflict of interest, it shall take appropriate disciplinary and corrective action as recommended by the Council’s legal counsel.

5.  Periodic Reviews

To ensure that the Council operates in a manner consistent with its nonprofit purposes and that it does not engage in any activities that could jeopardize its status as an organization exempt from federal income tax, periodic reviews of all transactions and arrangements shall be conducted, along with an annual review of any actual or potential conflicts of interest of the directors.

Email Etiquette Policy

1.  Be careful of email content, it is discoverable in a court of law. Emails written at work are the property of the company that you work for.  These emails can be retrieved and examined even if deleted.  Email can be easily forwarded and inadvertently sent to unintended audiences.  Always be professional.  Do not put into print anything that may embarrass you or others.
2.  Be informal but professional.Follow standard protocol, using traditional spelling, grammar and punctuation avoiding abbreviations.  
3.  Keep messages brief and concise. Avoid too many topics in each email.  The longer the email the less likely someone will read the email to the end.
4.  Use appropriate sentence case.Using all capital letters has the appearance that someone is angry and shouting at the recipients. Using all lowercase letters looks lazy and unprofessional. If you need to emphasize words, use asterisks or bold formatting.  Color and graphics is not a consistent format to use because computer software is not consistent as to how it is displayed.
5.  Use the blind copy (BCC) and courtesy copy (CC) appropriately.Be careful when you use BCC.  If you need to hide a recipient then maybe you should not put the email in writing in the first place.  BCC can be used to hide email addresses from group distributions if necessary.  Don't use BCC to keep others from seeing who you copied; it shows confidence when you directly CC anyone receiving a copy. When using CCs only include those people that are necessary to the distribution of the information in the email.
6.  Email should not replace verbal communication.If the content of the conversation is heated or argumentative it may be best to communicate verbally instead of in writing.
7.  For group email, use the reply to all button where appropriate. When scheduling meetings or conference calls there is no need to reply to all when the party that sent
the email is the one responsible for scheduling the event.  Generic responses also do not need to be sent to all in the group email.  If the email requests a response to a topic of discussion then reply to all is appropriate.
8.  Indicate the subject of your email on your email in concise terms.When necessary include the word “Long” in the subject field to indicate that the email is a lengthy email.
9.  Avoid sending chain letters, virus warnings, or junk mail.This may be against your company’s policy.  If a constant stream of jokes from a friend annoys you, be honest and ask to be removed from the list. Direct personal e-mail to your home e-mail account.
10. Remember that your tone can't be heard in e-mail.Sarcasm in an e-mail is not an effective way of communicating as verbal nuances are not usually conveyed adequately.  E-mail communication can't convey the nuances of verbal communication. Remember to respond professionally.
11. Include your contact information with your signature on all emails.Contact information is important for future communication.  Include your title, mailing address, phone
number, fax number, and website address.
12. Avoid email message strings Attempt to limit email responses so there is not a long string of emails going back and forth.  If forwarding emails do not change the words used by the sender.
13. Summarize long discussions.Summarize or highlight relevant information in long emails.
