Conflict of Interest Policy

Application: Library Trustees

Policy:

We, the Trustees of the Cape Vincent Community Library, resolve that no member of the Board of Trustees shall participate in any discussion or vote on any matter in which he or she or a member of his or her immediate family has potential conflict of interest due to having a material economic involvement regarding the matter being discussed.  When such a situation presents itself, the Trustee must announce a potential conflict, disqualify him or herself, and be excused from the meeting until discussion is over on the matter involved. 

Responsibility: Any Trustee is expected to make inquiry if such conflict appears to exist and a Trustee has not made it known.
