The MTA does not endorse, and is not affiliated with, any vendors, services, or products. This principle is critical to the MTA’s independence, objectivity, and continued ethical interaction with financial market professionals and the public alike.
As a reminder, MTA Chapter Chairpersons/Officers (hereafter “Officers”) are not permitted to use MTA activities, properties, member/affiliate information, or MTA-related mailing lists for the purpose of selling any services or products for which Officers receive compensation.
Officers with compensatory vendor, brokerage, and/or selling concession relationships must maintain these relationships at arm’s length at all times during which they act on behalf of the MTA. Any exceptions must be disclosed in writing to the Regions Committee Chair and require explicit approval.
Failure to comply with the guidelines above can result in the termination of an MTA Chapter Officer and may result in an MTA Ethics Committee review.
