Role of Ethics/Conflict Advisor for ANB Members

ANB offers ANB members access to an ANB’s ethics & conflict (E&C) advisor. This service is available at no charge. As explained below, should you find yourself (or find someone else) in situation(s) that 1) you are questioning, 2) are uncomfortable with and feel may be inappropriate or 3) are clear cases of maltreatment, we strongly encourage you to contact ANB’s E&C Advisor who will be able to provide you with valuable and confidential advice.

Role:  Ethics/Conflict Advisors (ECAs)

The role of the Chief ANB Ethics/Conflict Advisor (ECA) is to provide Athletics New Brunswick members with guidance and advice and in total confidentiality, with regards to concerns or conflicts.  The ECA may also provide conflict resolution approaches where deemed appropriate.  The position is filled by a person not necessarily involved in the sport of Athletics but experienced in conflict resolution.  This office also has the support, if required, of an experienced member of the Athletics New Brunswick Board (or designate) deemed an E&C assistant advisor.

Should any matter brought to the attention of the ECA be of a complaint level, the Chief ECA’s role will be to provide the member with the information required to refer you to the appropriate body or to the ANB commissioners to file the complaint. In order to maintain independence, the Chief ECA will not be an active participant in complaint cases brought before the ANB Commissioners.

•          Long standing (health) professional
