Code Of Conduct

Our “Code of Conduct” is “Be Excellent to Each Other”. Speakers and presenters appreciate and welcome legitimate questions and alternate points of view as that is how we all learn. Asking questions of a speaker during their talk, to get clarity or debate a point is acceptable and encouraged. However, heckling or haranguing the speaker is unacceptable behavior and will be considered harassment which could become grounds for you being asked to leave the conference.

If you are not sure, ask, or err on the side of basic decency and common courtesy. If you observe an individual engaged in behavior that would not be acceptable to have done to you, your best friend, your worst enemy, your sister, niece, daughter, brother, nephew, son, mother, father, or any human being, please ask them to stop. If you do not feel comfortable asking them yourself, please notify one of our staff that will have the following designations on their shirts: STAFF, SECURITY, VOLUNTEER so we can respond. If someone asks YOU to stop a certain kind of behavior, please stop.
