SICA Policies

Published Nov 19, 2020


Respecting the privacy of its donors, participants, volunteers and trustees is a basic value of Shawrith Israel Congregation of Alliance. Personal and financial information, particularly information about donations or payments to SICA or Alliance Synagogue, is confidential and should not be disclosed or discussed with anyone without express permission or authorization from the Board. Trustees shall use confidential information solely for the purpose of performing services as a board member for SICA. This policy is not intended to prevent disclosure where disclosure is required by law.

Board members and employees must exercise good judgment and care at all times to avoid unauthorized or improper disclosures of confidential information. At the end of a board member’s term in office, he or she shall return, at the request of SICA, all documents, papers, and other materials, regardless of medium, that may contain or be derived from confidential information in his or her possession.
