Code of Conduct
The Sales Association strives to create a safe environment where sales professionals can learn and network without the pressure to sell or be sold to. The Sales Association is not a leads group. Instead, we encourage relationship-building among sales professionals, sharing best practices, mentorship and facilitating introductions.
The Sales Association Code of Conduct was adopted to promote productive communication and to maximize the organization's impact for the member. In joining The Sales Association, the member agrees to abide by the following Codes of Conduct.
As a member of The Sales Association, I pledge to:
- Not sell my product or services at Sales Association events. The Sales Association encourages you to build, foster and grow business relationships at events but specifically denies permission to "sell" products or services. Association events are designed for the professional development of the individual member and not as a solicitation opportunity to sell specific products or services. For those who provide services of specific interest to sales profesionals, The Sales Association offers sponsorship and advertising opportunities within the Sales Association's official advertising/sponsorship guidelines.
- Maintain the confidentiality of privileged information that I may obtain as a member of The Sales Association.
- Strive for personal growth and continuing education as a sales and business development professional.
- Conduct my business affairs with professionalism, honesty and integrity.
The Sales Association shall uphold these codes and will strive to resolve disputes in a fair and expeditious manner.
