Ethics Committee

Responsible for reviewing the merit of any ethics complaint filed against an ASID member that has surpassed legal review and has not been mutually resolved between the two parties. The committee's main purpose is to decide if the case involves a possible ethics violation and if the case should be sent before a disciplinary committee. If the majority of the ethics committee decides the matter does not warrant a disciplinary proceeding, the case is then ruled closed. The committee does not determine guilt or innocence, but merely if the ethics complaint is valid and if the evidence presented warrants a disciplinary hearing. 

Committee Members

Keith Stanton, ASID
Lynn Vogeltanz, ASID, NCIDQ
Denise Rush, ASID
Michael A. Thomas, FASID, CAPS
Robin Stroebel, ASID, LEED, AP ID+C
