SEG institutes third-party "whistleblower" policy
In an effort to meet our constant goal to conduct business at the utmost level of integrity, professional standards, and best practices, SEG has taken steps to incorporate a new "whistleblower" reporting mechanism whereby SEG members and vendors may anonymously report to a neutral third party any SEG activity that is perceived as dishonest, unethical, or illegal. Details pertaining to this new "whistleblower" mechanism can be viewed on the SEG website at
