The board I am on wants its members to sign an ethics agreement but at this time it is not mandatory, since it is not mentioned in the bylaws as a requirement for becoming a board member.
My question is if only a few members choose to sign it, does that mean that what’s true on the agreement is only true for them?
Meaning it doesn’t become “the way things are” for everyone?

The agreement seems to have language that is in conflict with CA civil code, and seeks to modify it, and impedes upon a right board members have as per their Parliamentary Authority, and I don’t think the board, with an “agreement” on paper or not, has the power/authority to do either.

What do you mean "the board wants"? You're on it. Did the board have a vote or pass a resolution that said, "This is what the board wants"?

Unless it's something mandated by the bylaws or another governing document, I'd argue it's meaningless and it doesn't matter who signs it or who doesn't sign it. It's a worthless piece of paper.
