2018 Year End Professional Standards Report
The GHAR Ombudsman Program continues to be effective. Considering GHAR membership is a healthy 4,000+, we received only 12 written ethics complaints and 2 Keybox complaints. There were no arbitration requests filed in 2018. That is up slightly from last year where we had only 8 ethics complaints filed and no Keybox complaints or arbitration requests. Read the full report.

The Professional Standards Committee is busy working on ways to ease the complaint process, which includes a new Citation Policy that was recently adopted by the GHAR Board of Directors.
