Background of the Ethics Council
The International Association of Movers developed and implemented its Code of Ethics to assist IAM members in understanding the difference between “right” and “wrong,” and applying that understanding to their decisions and dealings with other IAM members and their clients.
At the time the Code of Ethics was implemented, there were no corresponding enforcement procedures or oversight body set up to equip the Association with a system to adjudicate breaches of the Code. On Jan. 1, 2012, IAM instituted enforcement procedures and established a Members Ethics Council to provide a framework through which ethics complaints could be brought before the Association and reviewed by a group of member peers, and judgments could be issued.
Ethics Council Roster
The Members’ Ethics Council is responsible for adjudicating IAM Code of Ethics violations and setting ethics enforcement policy for the Association. Composed of a diverse array of IAM member volunteers, the Members Ethics Council is well equipped to provide a broad, unbiased perspective on ethics issues.
