Ambler Area Running Club
Welcoming runners of all abilities.
MEMBER CODE OF CONDUCT
The mission of the Ambler Area Running Club (AARC) is to provide the community with an organized venue in which to promote the sport of running and the benefits we believe it provides to all members, regardless of age or ability. These benefits include, but are not limited to, physical activity, which contributes to a healthy lifestyle, friendship, and social interaction as well as community outreach and support.
The Code of Conduct is created for the safety and benefit of AARC, its members and visitors. It is not meant to dictate all interpersonal relationships and interactions between members or between members and the community. Instead, the purpose of this policy is to set forth the basic principles of decency we expect members to follow so that members can achieve their running goals in a safe and fun environment.
As an AARC member, you agree to:
Violations of the Code of Conduct are to be presented to the AARC President, who shall investigate the circumstances of the allegations and report the findings to the Board of Directors.
The Board of Directors shall review the findings of the President at its next scheduled meeting to determine whether further action is necessary. The Board, in its discretion, may fashion a remedy depending on the severity of the Code of Conduct violation. Sanctions may include, but are not limited to, a verbal warning, a written warning, referral of the matter to proper law enforcement, or the cancellation of AARC membership. The Board shall allow the accused member an opportunity to be heard. The accused may petition/address either in writing or in person, prior to any cancellation of any AARC membership.
