Code of Ethics
EVCOM are extremely proud to position clients at the heart of everything we do and have created a new Code of Ethics for members.
New members will have to agree to comply with this new code. We hope, above all, it will create a common purpose which will help EVCOM members to differentiate themselves and to stand out.
Our clients are our number one priority – client interests always come first.
We will hold our clients, partners and suppliers in the highest regard, irrespective of race, religion, disability, gender, age or sexual orientation.
We will bring a passion to our work that is a reflection of our commitment to our clients and a reflection upon us as professionals.
We will work with our client, all other suppliers and partners, as consummate professionals. We will operate on a trust-based partnership with all whom we work with to secure the best outcome for our client.
DIVERSITY & INCLUSION
We will work actively to combat the lack of diversity and inclusion in our sector. We will commit to tackling barriers to recruitment and career progression for underrepresented groups, and to greater senior representation.
In the service we provide, from advice to execution, we will strive always to do the best work possible for our clients.
Everything we do on behalf of our client will stand up to scrutiny. From income sources, to suppliers used, and fees invoiced.
We will consider a diverse range of access needs when planning and executing projects.
We will work to create events and projects that are as sustainable as possible, from suppliers to venues and locations.
We will respect people’s different physical and emotional boundaries. We will deal with any situations in which people’s consent is breached very seriously.
Please note, we are currently offering free membership to Black individuals and Black-led teams until the end of 2021. If you would like to take this offer up, please email Amelia on email@example.com and they will get you signed up!
We’ve updated our membership categories to better reflect the range and diversity of the member agencies we represent. We recognise that agencies are, by their nature, entrepreneurial and often fast-growth businesses.
The EVCOM community is growing and we want to make sure that membership is open and accessible to all.
At EVCOM we are pleased to be able to represent members who adhere to our shared Code of Ethics and who drive best business practice in live, film and digital every working day.
To join the EVCOM network please fill out the below application form and submit your payments details. A member of the EVCOM team will then be in touch to set your membership up.
All memberships (except our individual memberships) are linked to the company and we encourage everyone within that company to take advantage of the EVCOM membership.
