Members of SAM aspire to the highest standards of professional conduct. A SAM member will model ethical and professional behavior through actions, not just words–avoiding the appearance of improper conduct. Managers, academicians, and student members of SAM, are to reflect the following values: integrity; fairness; loyalty to the Society and the institution each represents; objectivity in work and relationships; diligence in duties; avoiding conflicts of interest; guarding confidences; promoting non-discrimination; supporting the goals of the Society; giving the best performance to duties, efforts, and thought; and assisting in the ethical and professional development of the next generation of managers.
