At least year’s Council meeting in Vienna, Jerry McBride suggested that IAML should formulate a “Code of Conduct”. This is an issue in the USA that could affect delegates’ permission to attend conferences; a number of universities and other institutions in the USA now require associations that hold conferences to have such a Code in order to allow and/or support their faculty, staff, and students to attend. Because next year’s conference is in New York, where attendance could be impacted especially, it is hoped that a Code will be adopted in Antwerp.
