As we continue to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic together as a community, the board of The Woodbridge Club wants to assure its members that we are doing everything possible to make informed decisions for the safety of our members and the future of our club. We continue to meet weekly to discuss state regulations and guidelines affecting our ongoing season. All updates to our members will be listed here as decisions are made. We will continue to diligently implement policies and procedures to protect our membership and community.

CODE OF CONDUCT

Updated: December 10, 2020

Overview

The Woodbridge Club (“Club”) is a non-for-profit social club that provides paying Members/Owners with a wide range of social benefits and services such as, but not limited to, swimming, tennis, and various family events.

The Code of Conduct (“Code”) has been developed to ensure that the Club is a safe, friendly and respectful place for Members/Owners, visitors and staff to gather in the spirit of cooperation, relaxation, good will, fun and friendly competition. This Code of Conduct differs from and is distinctly separate from the Club rules and by-laws in that it addresses acceptable/unacceptable behavior. 

As Members/Owners each of us has as a responsibility to uphold the principles of:

Behaving Responsibly. Use good judgment, being honest and ethical in every action you take. 

Ask for help. When an answer is not clear, ask for guidance before taking action.

Stay alert. Pay close attention to any activity that is inconsistent with our Code, policies, or occupational health and safety laws..

Report concerns. Do not ignore a violation. Report your concerns immediately to the Club Director or Assistant Director. If the concern involves the Club Director or Assistant Director, reports may be made to the President or Vice President  of the Board of Directors.

Model the Code and our values. Promote a culture of integrity by making ethical decisions and showing honesty and integrity in your actions. 

Policy Modifications and Waivers

We realize that the Code will not cover every possible circumstance, especially when issues arise outside the foreseeable norms. The Code is broadly stated and thus, the Club, via the Board of Directors, may modify the Code, as necessary. Any waivers of the Code, however, must be approved by the Director, Assistant Director or the Board of Directors. In the extremely rare situation that a waiver is approved, we will quickly and properly disclose it where required by law.

Administering the Code

The Club Director, Assistant Director and/or Board of Directors are responsible for administering the Code in an independent, objective and consistent manner.

Discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion (creed), gender, gender expression, age, national origin (ancestry), disability, marital status, sexual orientation, or military status shall not be tolerated at the Club or any Club sponsored activity or event.

Breaches of this Code of Conduct

  1. The consequences for breach of the Code are at the discretion of the Club Director, Assistant Director and the Board of Directors.
  2. Any behavior deemed to be a violation of the Code may result in Members/Owners and/or guests being immediately removed from an event or the facility.  
  3. Any inappropriate behavior or the report of any incident shall be fully investigated by the Club Director, Assistant Director and (when deemed appropriate due to severity) the Executive Committee.  At his/hers/its sole discretion, the Club Director, Assistant Director and/or Executive Committee may ask for evidence such as written or verbal statements from all involved parties.  Upon completion of any investigation, the Executive Committee shall make a written recommendation of verbal warning, written reprimand, suspension or revocation of membership privileges.
