Members Code of Conduct
@ June 2018
Why is this important?
Conduct and behaviour underpin organisational culture. Organisations that have a positive culture generally flourish and bring a huge amount of value to their community. A code of conduct can assist to create a positive culture by outlining expected standards of behavior for all involved in surf lifesaving.
Each member must commit to observing the General Code of Conduct and surf lifesaving entities may consider a failure to observe the Codes as misconduct, and may take appropriate disciplinary action in accordance with relevant rules and regulations including the SLSA Member Protection Policy - 6.05.
There are many ways that members receive the Code of Conduct, some suggestions include: displaying on the club notice board, printing in member welcome packs, adding to club newsletters, distributing during any formal inductions, or posting on club websites.
