Codes of conduct and the bad behaviour of board members

The Charity Trustees Network is drafting a model Code of Conduct for charities. This recognises the difficulties that can arise from problem board members.

Its worth remembering that having a code is one thing; having the ability and willingness to apply it is another. I know of at least one college that had a code of conduct but did not know how it was going to use it when a governor was accused of breaching confidentiality.

The CTN would like to hear about:

1) the kinds of trustee behaviours that have caused concern and difficulties

2) experience of putting in place and using a code of conduct
