PAC Code of Conduct Road Show
A revised Park Advisory Council Code of Conduct will go into effect on December 1, 2023. The Chicago Park District will be launching a PAC Code of Conduct Road Show to share the updates to the Code of Conduct with PACs and staff over the next 2 months. Please join us for one of these engagements. At least 1 member from each PAC should attend one of these sessions.
This Park Advisory Council Code of Conduct has been updated with guidance from PAC members to set expectations for appropriate behavior for all Chicago Park District Advisory Council members, officers, and guests. Here is a summary of the Code:
- Just like the existing Code of Conduct, this updated Code applies to all PACs and their members.
- PACs and their members are expected to uphold the Code’s standards while participating in the PAC and PAC events.
- The Code sets forth the guidelines that are to be followed if a PAC member violates the Code.
- Once the revised Code is effective on December 1, any violations of the Code will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis by the PAC Governance Committee (a new structure that we will discuss!), and reviewed by the Department of Legislative and Community Affairs.
