Update from the Ethics Advisory Committee Chair Daniel N. Watter

It is with a great deal of pleasure and excitement that I agreed to chair this committee several months ago. The EAC is a terrific group of hard-working individuals who are striving to create an ethically sound and ethically sensitive AASECT environment. The committee members include Reece Malone, Heather Raznick, Larry Siegel, and Lisa Schwartz. We have been meeting every month or two to deal with ethics matters including complaints and educational programming. We will be leading a discussion on Sunday morning at the annual meeting on the ethics of advertising and promoting your AASECT membership. In addition, we are reviewing the AASECT Code of Ethics and looking to make modifications to be in line with the current zeitgeist of our organization.

While our scope is broad, the primary goal of the EAC is to provide ethics education and guidance to the AASECT membership. We are planning several initiatives for the upcoming year, and welcome your feedback and suggestions. Please feel free to contact us with your questions, comments, problems, or suggestions at: ethics@aasect.org., or see me in person at the annual meeting in Philadelphia. It is an honor and a privilege to serve this organization!
