September is Ethics Awareness Month


“The final proof of a manager and the final demand on management is integrity, a moral soundness in business dealings that tests steadfastness to truth, purpose, responsibility and trust.”

-William Walters Jr., CPM®, 1971 IREM® President

Professional ethics is the cornerstone of IREM – and member adherence to the IREM® Code of Professional Ethics is what sets us apart! Owners, employers and clients should know that IREM® Members are bound by this strictly enforced code, giving members credibility and trust that the competition just doesn’t have. Make sure you are doing your part as an IREM®
Member to spread the word!


Here’s what you can do:

  •  Download a copy of the newly released Real Life Ethics Case Study (Second Edition) report at www.irem.org/membership/ethics/ethics-awareness-month to read about cases that have gone before the IREM® Ethics Boards, find out about common pitfalls, and learn tips to avoid violations of the Code.

  • Download a copy of the IREM® Code of Professional Ethics at www.irem.org/membership/ethics/ethics-awareness-month and display it proudly in your office.
