CODE OF ETHICS FOR MEMBERS
OF THE
AKRON CANTON REAL ESTATE INVESTORS ASSOCIATION

The ownership and management of real estate is a segment of the free enterprise system with far reaching impact in the United States. As such, the members of the Akron Canton Real Estate Investors Association (ACREIA) must treat this enterprise with the utmost professionalism.

ACREIA membership means that each member is part of an organization of people intent on expanding their knowledge of real estate investing and management.

We, the members of ACREIA, as active investment professionals, support:
• Provision of safe and sanitary housing
• Provision of affordable housing opportunities
• Development and re-development of housing units which make neighborhoods and communities more attractive and desirable

In order to pursue these ends in a legal and ethical manner, all members of ACREIA will be held to a high standard of ethical behavior which includes, but is not limited to the following enumerated list of behaviors:

I, as an ACREIA member:

1. Will not intentionally misrepresent any material fact in my business dealings.
2. Will keep myself informed on matters affecting housing in my community, including local, state, and federal laws.
3. Support the provision of safe and sanitary housing.
4. Provide assistance to fellow REIA members whenever prudent and appropriate.
5. Act as a positive role model for the professions of Real Estate Investing and Housing Providers when dealing with tenants, the public, the media, government officials and all others.
6. Will be responsible to complete my own due diligence (homework) in all business dealings and will encourage others to do the same.
7. Will not malign other REIA members.

Those who want the association to take action against a member for what they perceive to be unethical behavior as defined in this document, must present their case and evidence of unethical behavior to the ACREIA President, in writing, for review. The President, the Executive Committee, and two volunteers from the general membership, will serve on an Ethics Committee, which the President will chair, unless he is directly involved. The Ethics Committee will investigate and review the allegations. The Ethics Committee will submit their findings and make a recommendation to the Board of Directors in a timely manner. The ACREIA Board of Directors may then impose whatever sanctions it deems appropriate. Such actions may include, but are not limited to, suspension or permanent disbarment from the organization.
