Judge May Serve As Club President With Limitations

A recent judicial ethics opinion from Delaware:

The Delaware Judges Code of Conduct permits a Judge to serve as President of a Club that performs charitable activities which are supported through fund-raising activities, so long as the Judge is able to separate his duties as President from the Club’s fund-raising function and does not allow the prestige of his judicial office to be used as a fund-raising mechanism. Canons 3.7
