The FSGA has adopted NGA’s Model Code of Ethics. Guardians are asked to sign a statement which indicates they will adhere by this model code.

Member participation is encouraged in many of our standing and ad hoc committees such as Legislative, Membership, Public Relations, Bylaws P and P, Finance, Nominating and Education. The donated talents and experience of our committee members is what makes our committees so diverse and effective.
