An optional fast track process, revised January 2018, for receipt, consideration, and resolution of ethics complaints is now available to associations interested in further expediting the processing of an ethics complaint.
Those associations implementing the fast track process will want to rely on the following pages which correspond with the Code of Ethics and Arbitration Manual. You will note that the first Section that needs to be changed to accommodate the fast track is Section 15, Grievance Committee, and the next change to accommodate the fast track does not appear until Section 19 (c), Grievance Committee Review of and Ethics Complainant, although the Sections between Section 15 and 19 are also included in this supplement. This is to alleviate the need for the user to flip back and forth between this supplement and the Code of Ethics and Arbitration Manual. The same is true of the forms; all ethics forms are included for your convenience but only some of them have been updated to reflect the fast track time frames as necessary (see shading).
