Code of Conduct

This sets out the standards of behaviour expected of members when attending a CMCA rally. In agreeing to be part of the rally, each member must also agree to adhere to these codes at all times.
Members must:

  • Treat all people associated with the Club, including members, volunteers, partners and external stakeholders, with respect.
  • Consider the welfare of the Club’s members at all times.
  • Be honest at all times.
  • Adhere to the rally rules established by the Club.
  • Uncooperative behaviour
  • A Member who becomes uncooperative or unruly will be instructed to leave the venue immediately.
  • Furthermore, should this occur, the Member may be given a suitable time to leave the site.
  • Failure to cooperate will result in the Police being called to assist.
  • If this occurs, further action via the CMCA Constitution may be undertaken and possible expulsion from the Club could occur.
  • Expulsion from the Club invalidates the members insurance, if covered by the CMCA insurance scheme.

Note: Any Member who, intentionally or otherwise, damages the rally site, removes any equipment without permission, enters a restricted area without permission or promotes any organisation other than CMCA (without permission), or acts in a manner that will bring CMCA, and/or its members into disrepute may be required to leave the rally site and must do so on request.
