As a tax-exempt nonprofit, nonpartisan organization, AAGEN dutifully complies with all applicable state and federal laws and regulations. Moreover, It is, and has been, AAGEN’s practice to remind its members, officers and members of the Board of Directors, to abide by all laws and regulations that apply to government employees’ participation in outside activities, including but not limited to, the Standards of  Ethical Conduct  for Employees of the Executive Branch, Final Regulation Issued by the U.S. Office of Government Ethics, Codified in 5 C.F.R. Part 2635, As amended at 81 FR 81641 (effective January 1, 2017).

Unless otherwise expressly stated, the officers and members of the Board of Directors of AAGEN serve in their personal, unofficial capacity.
