(a) In addition to the specific conflict-of-interest requirements and restrictions set forth above, regional center governing board members and executive directors are obligated to discharge their responsibilities with integrity and fidelity, and are prohibited from placing themselves in a position where their private, personal interests may conflict with their official duties.
(b) Governing board members and executive directors are impliedly bound to exercise the powers conferred on them with disinterested skill, zeal and diligence and for the benefit of the regional center and the consumers.
(c) If a situation arises that has not been specifically addressed in these regulations, where a governing board member, executive director, or his or her family member's personal or pecuniary interest conflicts with the individual's duty to act in the best interest of the regional center or the consumers, the governing board member or executive director is disqualified from taking any part in the discussion or from making any recommendation or decision regarding the transaction or decision.
(d) In interpreting and applying this section, the common law doctrine against conflict of interest and the authorities interpreting that doctrine shall govern.
