The AGA Governing Board adopted a policy on disclosure of potential conflict of interest to minimize conflicts of interest at all levels of AGA leadership to secure both institutional credibility and to protect AGA and individuals involved in governance. The policy applies to every person appointed or elected to leadership positions, and you should be familiar with it prior to applying to serve as an AGA volunteer.
