Abstract

This article explores the relationship between meetings and organisational ethics in an animal protection charity in Scotland. Here, recent ‘professionalisation’ has seen the late introduction of an ethics of office and accompanying impersonalization of roles. A consequent struggle emerges over what the relationship should be between the core message of the organisation, as an office of animal ethics, and the ‘personal’ principles or ethical commitment of individual staff members. All of this comes to a head when persons, and office-holders, meet.
