The ethical guidelines set out below are critical to the success of the Association. The protocol is laid out to ensure that the marketplace has faith in the Association and in the manner in which it operates, and that the industry as a whole continues to move forward in a uniformly principled manner.
- At all times, EASB members strive to create a productive and reliable relationship between themselves, speakers and clients
- EASB members provide speakers and clients with reasonable contracts and shall comply with their terms at all times
- When co-brokering a speaker with another bureau, EASB members will at all times respect the relationship of that speaker with his/her bureau and shall not claim any exclusive relationship with that speaker to their client.
