All members of the Minnesota Governmental Relations Council (MGRC) agree to abide by certain minimum ethical standards of conduct.

These standards include these obligations.

MGRC has adopted an Antitrust Policy which prevents the board and committees from engaging in discussion that could result in anti-competitive activities.
