authorities and members of the public Consequently there exists between WCWSP and its Steering Committee fiduciary duty that carries with it a broad and unbending duty of loyalty and fidelity Any nominee or member of the Committee that has or may have a conflict of interest with the WCWSP should not seek to be placed on the Steering Committee without full prior disclosure to the Co Chairs and the program s designated NPS Representative Upon consideration a decision will be made as to whether the conflict of interest is significant enough to preclude membership on the Steering Committee Steering Committee members must exercise the utmost good faith in all transactions involved in their duties and they shall not use their positions with WCWSP or knowledge gained there from for their personal benefit Steering Committee members must recuse themselves from voting on any issue that raises a potential conflict of interest personally or with the organization or agency they represent WCWA the fiduciary agent must also avoid these potential conflicts The interests of the organization must have first priority in all decisions and actions 11 COMMITTEE MEETINGS Quarterly Meetings The
