Spokespersons´ Association establishes ethics committee

An 'ethics commission' has been established by the Association of Spokespersons of Slovakia (AHS) to assess contentious cases involving spokespersons.

In extreme cases, the committee can distance itself from a spokesperson's actions if they violate ethical principles.

Former Slovenská Sporiteľňa bank spokesperson Eva Guttlerová became the ethics committee chairperson. AHS, at its general assembly meeting that ended on June 10, elected its council for the next two years. Its chairman, PSA Peugeot Citroen spokesman Peter Švec, was re-elected.

At the assembly meeting, the association decided to give its first annual award for contributions to this profession.

AHS was established in 2005 and currently has 25 active members and its internal communication database lists over 70 spokespersons.
