Ethics Committee

Chair: Deborah Hazel Johnson  [Contact]

Mission or Role of Committee: The Ethics Committee provides guidance and education to MPA members regarding ethical aspects of professional conduct. The Committee neither investigates, adjudicates, nor mediates ethical complaints.

MPA Members with Ethics questions should call the MPA office at 410-992-4258 or 301-596-3999 to receive contact information for the Ethics Committee. Members can also find frequently asked questions in the Members Only section of this website. (You will need your member log-in information.)

  3. Vetted possible new committee members; accepted one new member.
