It has often been asked what separates FCCMA from other associations. The answer has always been the adherence to a strict code of ethics by the membership.

The 2015-2018 Strategic Plan addresses the promotion of ethics. FCCMA has added a page to the website to make it easy for the members to access the ICMA/FCCMA Code and Guidelines, the online ethics review for applicants and ongoing training to address the four-hour required FCCMA ethics training.
