Professional ideas and information are exchanged most effectively at the SEDAAG Annual Meeting and other SEDAAG events in an atmosphere free of discrimination or harassment and characterized by courtesy and respect. To that end, the SEDAAG expects all individuals who attend the regional conference or who participate in other SEDAAG-sponsored events to conduct themselves in a manner that establishes an atmosphere free from discriminatory practices. All participants are expected to treat others with respect and consideration, follow venue rules, and alert staff or security when they have knowledge of dangerous situations, violations of this Event Conduct Policy, or individuals in distress. This Conduct Policy applies to all attendees and participants at any SEDAAG-sponsored event, including in online venues, and at SEDAAG-sponsored meeting social events. All who register to participate, attend, speak at, or exhibit at an SEDAAG event agree to comply with this Policy.
