CODE OF CONDUCT

As a nonprofit organization at the forefront of the homeopathy community, the National Center for Homeopathy (NCH) strives to uphold the highest legal, ethical, and moral standards. Our donors, members and volunteers support NCH because they trust us to be good stewards of their resources, and to uphold rigorous standards of conduct. Our reputation for integrity and excellence requires the careful observance of all applicable laws and regulations, as well as a scrupulous regard for the highest standards of conduct and personal integrity.

NCH expects its volunteers, meeting attendees, speakers, exhibitors, sponsors and staff to display the highest qualities of personal and professional integrity in all aspects of their NCH related activities. Accordingly, and to foster a positive environment built upon a foundation of trust, respect, open communications, and ethical behavior, the NCH Board of Directors has issued this Conduct Policy to remind people of the importance of following a code of conduct when participating in any NCH activity.

This policy applies to NCH volunteers, i.e., it applies to individuals conducting the business and affairs of the NCH without compensation for that conduct. It also applies to attendees, exhibitors, sponsors, speakers and staff at the Joint American Homeopathic Conference and all NCH events and meetings (both virtual and in-person). Volunteers, meeting attendees, exhibitors, sponsors, speakers and staff should at all times abide by this Code of Conduct Policy.

  • Conference/meeting attendees, exhibitors, sponsors, speakers, volunteers and staff should understand and support NCH’s mission.
  • Conference/meeting attendees, exhibitors, sponsors, speakers, volunteers and staff should contribute to a collegial, inclusive, positive, and respectful environment.
  • Conference/meeting attendees, exhibitors, sponsors, speakers, volunteers and staff must avoid taking any inappropriate actions based on race, gender, age, religion, ethnicity, nationality, sexual orientation, gender expression, gender identity, marital status, political affiliation, presence of disabilities, or educational background. They should show consistent respect to colleagues, regardless of the level of their formal education and whether they are from industry, government or from within the homeopathy community.
  • Conference/meeting attendees, exhibitors, sponsors, speakers, volunteers and staff should interact with others in a cooperative and respectful manner.
  • Conference/meeting attendees, exhibitors, sponsors, speakers, volunteers and staff should refrain from using insulting, harassing, or otherwise offensive language in their NCH interactions. Disruptive, harassing, or inappropriate behavior toward other volunteers, meeting attendees, exhibitors, sponsors, speakers and staff is unacceptable. Personal boundaries set by others must be observed. Harassment of any kind, including but not limited to unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical harassment will not be tolerated.
  • Conference/meeting attendees, exhibitors, sponsors, speakers, volunteers and staff must obey all applicable laws and regulations of the relevant government authorities while acting on behalf of the NCH. Likewise, volunteers, meeting attendees, exhibitors, sponsors, speakers and staff must obey all applicable laws and regulations of the relevant government authorities while attending NCH meetings.
  • Conference/meeting attendees, exhibitors, sponsors, speakers, volunteers and staff should only use NCH’s trademarks, insignia, name, logos, and other intellectual property in compliance with NCH regulations and directives as may be issued from time to time.

Since we strive to be a collegial organization, negative remarks about another individual, homeopathic organization or methodology are not acceptable. Any individual who uses pejorative or belittling language in speech or in written materials will be asked to leave any NCH hosted event.

Violations of this Conduct Policy should be reported promptly to the NCH Secretary or to the President of the NCH Board of Directors. In cases of alleged persistent and/or serious violations of this Conduct Policy, the Board shall review the evidence and shall take such actions as may be appropriate, including but not limited to requiring volunteers to leave their volunteer position(s); precluding volunteers from serving in volunteer roles in the future; requiring meeting attendees, exhibitors, sponsors, speakers and/or staff to leave the conference/meeting; and, precluding conference/meeting attendees, exhibitors, sponsors, speakers and staff from attending future NCH hosted conferences/meetings. NCH, through its Board of Directors, reserves the right to pursue additional measures as it may determine are appropriate.
