The WMA Board of Directors unanimously adopted and agreed to subscribe to the West Molokai Association Code of Ethics as a condition for service on the WMA Board of Directors:

West Molokai Association Board Code of Ethics

The purpose of this code of ethics is to affirm our understanding that we have a fiduciary responsibility to represent the interests of association members; and that we will declare all potential conflicts of interest, maintain confidentiality on all matters the Board deems to be confidential by holding discussions in executive sessions, and refuse all payments and gifts that could influence our decisions or the outcome of Board deliberations.  By so doing we reaffirm our obligations to association members and acknowledge potential personal liabilities should we violate these principles.

  • “A conflict of interest transaction is a transaction with the corporation in which a director of the corporation has a direct or indirect interest”.  Section 414D-150, Hawai’i Revised Statutes.
  • Upon election and whenever necessary thereafter, each director will provide complete and timely disclosure of personal and financial relationships related to all matters that may come before the Board
  • No director shall solicit or accept, directly or indirectly, any gifts, gratuity, favor, entertainment, loan or any other thing of monetary value from a person who is seeking to obtain contractual or other business or financial relations with the association.
  • No director shall accept a gift, payment or favor made with the intent of influencing a decision or action on any official matter.
  • No director shall receive any compensation from the association for serving on the board.
  • No director shall knowingly misrepresent facts to the members of the community for the purpose of advancing a personal cause and/or encouraging or influencing the community to place pressure on the board to advance a personal cause, or for any other reason.
  • No promise of anything not approved by the board as a whole can be made by any director to any subcontractor, supplier or contractor during negotiations.  Directors negotiating on behalf of the board shall disclose to the other party that all agreements shall be subject to approval by the board unless the board has by resolution duly adopted authorized the director to bind the board.
  • No director will knowingly reveal to any parties or individuals any information regarding executive sessions or any other information that is intended to be confidential.
  • No director shall attend or participate in any debate or discussion of any matter upon which the director has a conflict of interest.

Breaches of confidentiality might entail whatever consequences our legal counsel feels are appropriate and within legal bounds.
