“The Northeast Indiana Regional Partnership (Regional Partnership) is committed to the economic growth of the 11-county Northeast Indiana region. The Regional Partnership brings together the interests of a broad range of private and public groups to promote Northeast Indiana as a single economic entity. The collaboration of such a variety of groups and interests requires that certain standards of conduct must be developed and adhered to for the Regional Partnership to meet its goals of generating new business leads, developing competitive product, and cultivating effective regional leadership for Northeast Indiana. The progress of our work together as a region will be determined by our ability to foster the general creation of prosperity as indicated by increasing employment, per capita income and GDP. This Code of Ethics represents the standards that partners and stakeholders of the Regional Partnership will uphold and encourage in the daily conduct of business.”
