At the July 2011 meeting, the Executive Board approved a revision to the Code of Professional Ethics to make it consistent with other Board policies. The revised language states that Fellows should avoid discrimination "on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, perceived gender, and any basis that would constitute illegal discrimination."
