The Trustees, Officers and employees of the Archaeological Institute of America have a fiduciary obligation to uphold the public trust in the conduct of the Institute’s affairs. They are required to conduct the activities of the AIA in the best interest of the organization and to avoid conflicts between that responsibility and their personal interests. This duty precludes Trustees, Officers and employees from being supporters of persons or organizations whose activities are inimical to the mission and goals of the AIA. It also mandates the disclosure by Trustees, Officers and employees of AIA transactions and arrangements that may personally benefit, or appear to benefit, individual Trustees, Officers or employees (Such Trustees and Officers are referred to below as “Interested Persons.”)
More specifically, an Interested Person is a Trustee, Officer or employee who has, may have or may be perceived to have a direct or indirect interest (financial or otherwise) in a transaction or arrangement between the AIA and a third party individual or organization. A financial interest, for these purposes, includes gifts or favors as well as financial remuneration.
I hereby attest and affirm that I have received a copy of the Archaeological Institute of America’s Conflict of Interest Policy that I have read and understand the policy and that I will comply with it.
