Code of Ethics

 

Credo

We subscribe to the basic precept that our country’s economic progress can be best achieved in a climate of free enterprise

We endorse the concept that business and industry can best contribute to economic progress and social well-being though enlightened self interest

We believe that this self interest, based on the concept of rightful profit, can in turn be best attained through total consumer orientation

We are committed to the promotion and general acceptance of marketing as a professional endeavor, aware that to gain acceptance marketing practitioners must adhere to a high code of ethics;

We shall endeavor to live by that code, and to wield individual and collective force to prevent and minimize malpractice

We believe that integrity is the hallmark of an abiding faith in the eternal Almighty.
