Membership in our organization requires submission of a formal “Statement of Accountability for Ethical Conduct.” Completion of this form attests to the individual chaplain’s acceptance of the “NAJC Code of Ethics,” which was approved by our general membership in the Fall of 2003.
This requirement for NAJC members was recommended by the Joint Task Force on Ethical Standards for Professional Chaplaincy and embraced by our sister organizations. The joint task force, representing six professional chaplaincy associations in North America, is dedicated to articulating the highest ethical standards for professional chaplaincy and to promoting our mutual accountability for upholding those standards as organizations and as individuals. This new requirement affirms our acceptance of that responsibility as an organization and as individual chaplains.
