Volunteer Code of Conduct Agreement *
Volunteer Code of Conduct & Hold Harmless Agreement Code of Conduct We, the volunteers of Golden Retriever Rescue of Wisconsin (GRRoW), in order to better conduct ourselves in ways that consistently benefit our dogs, our organization, the adopting public, and the community at large, pledge ourselves the following code: The integrity of the group being dependent on the individual integrity of each member. a. As far as possible, we will keep our commitments and if we find ourselves unable to do so we will promptly communicate that to all concerned. Recognizing that we are a group of individuals who vary emotionally and temperamentally. a. We will conduct ourselves in such a manner as to not have reflection of anything negative toward the group or any member of the group. We will demonstrate our respect for the rights and feelings of all of the volunteers by protecting their privacy, by giving them the benefit of the doubt, and by exercising courtesy and restraint when communicating our displeasure with their actions. We will support through our actions and words, the leadership, the By-laws, policies and procedures, and operational structure of GRRoW. a. When we disapprove of the acts of other volunteers, we will use established methods to lodge complaints. When we want policies or the structure itself to change, we will communicate through committees, coordinators and the Board of Directors. We will conduct ourselves in a courteous, dignified manner during all GRRoW events. We will work together and cooperate with each other in a professional manner, with our common goal of improving the welfare of the Golden Retriever Breed. a. Not everyone will have exactly the same interpretation of every situation. In recognition of differences that exist, it is essential that all GRRoW volunteers represent a cohesive and united front. It is vital therefore, that all differences be settled internally. Any spoken or implied criticism of each other only serves to adversely affect not only GRRoW but all rescues.
