One of the stated purposes of the National Academy of Arbitrators is to “encourage
friendly association among the members of the profession.” We are all accomplished
professionals, or we would not have qualified for membership. The hallmark of our
dealings with one another must be the respect due to a fellow professional. The Board
of Governors deems this a basic obligation owed to the profession, the organization and
one another. It is the policy of the National Academy of Arbitrators that any member who,
in dealings with another member, engages in harassment or discrimination fails in this
obligation and is subject to disciplinary consequences to the same degree as a member
who violates the Code of Professional Responsibilities.
