TSRT Board Code of Conduct
I realize that to be the most effective advocate for the radiologic
sciences in Texas we, as a board, must function as a team. To this end I pledge to do my best to adhere to the principles
listed below. Should I, for whatever reason, fail to follow these guidelines, I ask my fellow board members to call
it to my attention. If that happens, I pledge to accept the feedback without anger or finger pointing, and to renew
my efforts to follow this Code of Conduct.
1. I will always strive to put the needs of all
radiologic technologists above the wants of one individual and will make decisions in terms of the educational welfare of
all imaging professionals in Texas regardless of ability, race, creed, ethnicity, social standings, etc.
I will not make derogatory comments about another board member, either publicly or privately. I will not intentionally
embarrass TSRT or staff members in public.
3. I will be open, honest, and direct about my
position on an issue.
4. I will come to board meetings prepared and on time. I will
not ask data related questions if data has been provided or if I have been given the opportunity to get the data.
I will not explain or represent to others the views of another board member.
6. I will accept
criticism without getting defensive or angry.
7. I will ask questions only for the purpose
of getting information, not to advance a political agenda or play to the audience.
8. I will
notify another board member up front if the content of our conversation is to remain confidential.
I will be open minded and willing to listen to the opinions of others. I will express my views in a positive and constructive
manner and will not attempt to monopolize the conversation. I reserve the right to disagree, but I will not be disagreeable.
Nor will I harbor grudges from past issues or events.
10. I will hold confidential all matters
pertaining to employees or members that, if disclosed, may needlessly injure individuals; and I will respect the confidentiality
of information that is privileged under applicable law.
11. I will not let personal pride,
ego, grudges, friendships, or other personal considerations influence my decision making or vote.
I will be responsible for setting policy and support the TSRT Board and Officers in managing TSRT and directing employees
in organizational matters.
