BRITISH ASTROLOGICAL AND PSYCHIC SOCIETY(Appendix 2)CODE OF ETHICS AND CONDUCT APPLICABLE TO CONSULTANT MEMBERS
1 It shall be the aim of every Consultant Member to provide a service which reflects both professional and spiritual integrity.
2 At all times a Consultant Member is required by their own example to encourage those whom they come into contact an awareness and understanding of their subject(s) and the spiritual reality they represent.
3 Fees charged by the Consultant Member may be determined by that member, except that such fees should always reflect the work carried out on behalf of the client and the professional capacity of the member. At their own discretion, a Consultant Member may provide free or reduced rate consultations where they deem it appropriate, except where such readings are carried out at a Festival or other public place where the Society is being officially represented, when such decisions shall rest with the Committee officer in charge.
4 A Consultant Member invited to work at any Festival or other official function of the Society under the name of BAPS shall do so under the conditions laid down from time to time by the Committee for such work and shall accept as final any decision of the Committee or Festival Organiser(s) regarding such work and payment of fees or donations thereof.
5 A Consultant Member may use the term “Cons.MBAPS” after their name in any advertising relating to the discipline(s) for which they have been vetted and approved for by the Committee, but may not do so in any other respect. When a Consultant Member is working at an official BAPS stand, private advertising display of any kind is permitted only with the prior approval of the Committee.
6 At all times a Consultant member shall conduct him/herself in a manner as befits a professional Member of the Society and shall in no way bring the good name of the Society into disrepute.
7 Any Consultant Member who has been found guilty of committing a breach of this Code of Ethics by a two-thirds majority of the Committee having investigated the circumstances and given the Member reasonable opportunity to defend and justify themselves in writing and or by appearance before the Committee shall have their name summarily removed from the register of Consultant Members and withstanding that the Member may be expelled under Clause 4e.
8 The re-instatement of a Consultant Member whose name has been removed under Clause 7 of this Appendix 2 shall not take place for a period of one year following the year in which the breach of conduct took place, or the year in which they are removed, whichever is the later, and then only with the approval of a two thirds majority of the Committee then in office.
9 Each Consultant Member shall be required to confirm their acceptance, by the signing of a copy of this Code of Ethics, such copy to be held by the Society.
