As the short term leaders of a professional society, SOE Presidents bring their past personal, teaching, research, and religous-spiritual philosophies with them into their leadership role. We lean upon these foundations as we navigate ethical issues with our members, our publications, society bestowed awards, investment of society funds, and other professional socieities. Open honest conversations, admitting when we do not fully understand a situation, and asking for help from those more experienced with the situations at hand are key features of the president's role in ethics.
