BC Museums Association Member Code of Conduct
All BCMA members commit to:
- providing, creating, and/or contributing to safe and respectful working conditions and to fostering a workplace free from discrimination, harassment, and sexual misconduct;
- acting in the best interests of the publics’ trust;
- supporting the goals set out by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission and the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP). To achieve these goals, the BCMA encourages members to embrace the ideals of the Rod Naknakim Declaration and incorporate them into their professional practices.
The BCMA also encourages botanical and zoological gardens, aquaria and vivaria in its membership to uphold the care standards set forth by the Canada’s Accredited Zoos and Aquariums (CAZA).
Members (individual or institutional) who engage in conduct that is unbecoming or inconsistent with the mission and values of the Association may be made ineligible for BCMA funding and programming opportunities, and in breaches in the code of conduct may result in members being expelled from the BC Museums Association, as outlined in the BCMA Bylaws.
