Numbi Arts CIC
Members’ Code of Conduct
Numbi Arts is a collaborative enterprise dependent on the efforts of its members to achieve its objectives. Members are encouraged to play an active part in the company, by for instance taking part in consultations, joining a Working Group, being part of a Project Team, attending general meetings, making do nations of goods or services, providing financial support or recruiting more members.
Numbi Arts members will be mindful of the trust that is invested in them when they join the company, and will refrain from any behaviour that could bring Numbi Arts into disrepute.
Members will understand that opinions expressed by individuals may not be those of the membership as a whole, or even of the majority, and that they may speak on behalf of Numbi Arts, or use the Numbi Arts name and logo, only if they have the explicit prior agreement of the Board. Members will also appreciate that to ensure proper control of finances, they may enter into financial commitments on behalf of Numbi Arts only where this has been expressly agreed in advance by the Board (or the treasurer on their behalf).
Members are welcome to tender for contracts of work that Numbi Arts may award from time to time, but this must be done fairly, openly and transparently. Members must inform the Board if they stand to benefit financially from any Numbi Arts project that they are involved in, must not exert undue influence on other members working on projects that might so benefit them, and must declare promptly any conflicts of interest that arise.
Members who are unable to abide by this code of conduct will regrettably have their membership terminated.
Everyone at Numbi Arts will be treated fairly and with both dignity and respect, irrespective of their age, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, marital status, civil partnership status, disability, nationality, race, religion or belief.
