JVA Member Code of Conduct

As a requirement of membership, JVA members agree to the JVA Guiding Principals and Code of Conduct.

A member who violates the JVA Club Code of Conduct may have their membership revoked by a 2/3's vote of the board of directors. The member will be notified via email within 48 hours; followed up by written notification via USPS mail tracking. The notice must include the decision, rationale for the decision and a description of the appeal process.

The member has the right to appeal as long as such appeal is made in writing and received within 30 days of the receipt of the original notification of membership revocation.

The written appeal will be made to JVA Board Secretary whom will Chair the Appeal Committee. Upon receipt of the appeal, the Board President will appoint two other active JVA members to serve on the committee. The committee will convene in person or via teleconference within fourteen days to review the Board's decision. The committee will afford the suspended member the opportunity to give written or verbal testimony. The Chair of the Appeal Committee will notify the member of the decision within 7 days of the appeal meeting. The decision of the Appeals Committee is final.
