Congratulations on being selected to participate in the Newport Beach Foundation’s.
Distinguished Citizen Program (the “Program”).
During the Program you will have the opportunity to hear from and engage with current leaders
of our community.
The Newport Beach Foundation’s Code of Conduct (the “Code”) is one of the ways we ensure
the principals of our mission are furthered. Respect for our speakers, residents, and fellow
participants is imperative for the Program’s success and longevity.
All participants of the Program are required to know and follow the Code. Failure to do so can
result in removal from the Program and termination of your relationship with the Foundation.
Please read our Code of Conduct and sign below acknowledging your agreement to follow the
Code throughout the Program.
Our reputation as an organization that our community can trust is our greatest asset, therefore
we expect that every participant of the Program reinforce this principle by conducting
themselves with respect, honesty, and professionalism.
The Foundation prohibits the sharing or reproduction of information received or statements
made during the Program by either a speaker or participant, whether in written, oral, or pictorial
form, with anyone outside of the Distinguished Citizen Program.
Any sharing of confidential information will be treated as a breach of your duty of confidentiality
and may result in immediate removal from the Program.
3. Freedom of Expression
The speakers and participants of the Program are independent of the Foundation. Their
opinions and representations are their own, and not that of the Foundation. Regardless of
background or political affiliation, it is expected that they be treated with respect and each
allowed to express their view openly without fear of judgment, harassment, embarrassment, or
retaliation. The Foundation does not tolerate disparaging or slanderous remarks and reserves
the right to remove you from the Program should this tenant be violated.
*All accepted applicants must sign and return the Code of Conduct, which was sent via email, before December 21, 2018. Further inquiries, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
