Members Guiding Principles

We will interact among ourselves with cordiality and openness: We will be even-handed, inclusive and accepting to everyone's input. We reject and avoid any action that would have any semblance of harassment and/or discrimination on race, ethnicity, religion, appearance or otherwise. We will be courteous and open. We will promptly confront issues and concentrate on reaching resolutions rather than dwelling on attributing blame.
