There is an Ethics Committee appointed by the U.S. Ski & Snowboard Board of Directors. No more than one member of the Ethics Committee may be a director at any one time. The other two members are proposed by the Nomination and Governance Committee and approved by the Board of Directors and considered every two years for retention with no limit on the number of terms that can be served. The Ethics Committee is responsible for the administration of the written code of conduct and ethical practices promulgated by the Board. The U.S. Ski & Snowboard Ethics Committee is a permanent standing committee.
The Board adopts a written code of conduct and ethical practices for U.S. Ski & Snowboard which includes the requirement that each officer and member of the Board and of each Sport Committee, as well as staff members, agree in writing to abide by such code. The code may be amended by the Board as advisable.
The code is administered by the U.S. Ski & Snowboard Ethics Committee, and includes the following restrictions:
- Any officer of U.S. Ski & Snowboard, or member of the Board, or of any Sport Committee, who has a financial interest in any contract or transaction involving U.S. Ski & Snowboard has no vote with respect to approval of such contract or transaction; and
