From the NAST Constitution, Article III, Section IV:
NAST reserves the right to evaluate any Corporate Affiliate application or any Corporate Affiliate for conformity with the goals, objectives or values reflected in the constitution, the by-laws or the mission statement of the National Association of State Treasurers, and further reserves the right to take appropriate action with respect to any Corporate Affiliate application or any Corporate Affiliate which does not conform to such goals, objectives or values.
Corporate Affiliate membership does not constitute an endorsement of the affiliate or any of its practices or products by the National Association of State Treasurers.
