AAPT members are encouraged to send comments with regard to a draft Member Disciplinary Policy
In keeping with accepted practice amongst professional bodies, the AAPT has ‘rules’ that all members must adhere to as part of their membership. These rules include a code of conduct and a number of related policies, such as the ‘Policy for Use of Social Media and Engagement with Other Media’.
As a result, there is a need for policy that details what will happen if these rules are breached, allowing the situation to be dealt with in a fair, consistent and transparent way – as a result, we have drafted a policy on which members can comment.
We strongly believe that members should be consulted, and have the opportunity to comment, when fundamental policies such as this are introduced. Please do read the policy and provide any comments you feel appropriate, to the AAPT Council – your views will be listened to. Comments to be sent by 12th May 2017 please.
