Posted on . Filed under Association News. Be the first to comment.

ADFIAP joins 200 other associations and non-profit organizations worldwide in adopting the “Global Principles for Socially Responsible Associations and Non-profits” initiated by the Washington, D.C.-based American Society of Association Executives & The Center for Association Leadership (ASAE & The Center). The Principles outline social responsibility guidelines for associations and non-profit organizations to adopt and implement in their daily operations.

The 30-point document includes provisions that guide associations on becoming more socially-responsible in areas related to association management, including advocacy, leadership, ethics, diversity, self-regulation, human rights, philanthropy and community service as well as environmental and economic sustainability. The Principles complement the United Nations Global Compact, a universally-vetted set of goals addressing many of the world’s most challenging problems.
