The AMGA Code of Ethics and Conduct ensures exceptional service to the public, promotes respect and integrity among AMGA members, and advances the professionalism of the industry.

If an individual believes there has been a violation of the AMGA Code of Ethics and Conduct, the individual may report the alleged violation to the AMGA through the Speak Up platform. Complaints submitted through the AMGA Speak Up platform are received and processed by Investigations Law Group (ILG), a third-party investigations firm. Upon receiving a complaint, ILG determines the severity of the infraction, documents the complaint information, and works with the AMGA to review and adjudicate the complaint.
