In keeping with the best non-profit governance practices, the Board of Directors have adopted the following policies:
The board Directors will adhere to the SWAN Board Membership Agreement
Member (Angel, Associate, Intern) Code of Conduct
- I will respect the privacy of other members and not provide their name to any third party without their permission.
- I will keep membership information confidential.
- I understand and recognize that The Southwest Angel Network meetings and communications are focused on investment pursuits and I agree to not solicit for business with a party that I come in contact with through the network. Those parties include Angels, potential angels, portfolio companies, company applicants and Associates. I may respond to unsolicited requests for more information on my business.
- I will disclose to the group any relationship I have or may have with a presenting company, including any personal gain I may receive from the company. If I have any sort of financial connection with a company who has applied for funding, I agree to recuse yourself from all discussions regarding that company during down-selection, dinner pitch events and due diligence. A mentoring that role does not have the potential for a personal financial benefit does not require a recusal.
