This code of conduct describes expectations for participant behavior as well as consequences resulting from violations of this document. All decisions made regarding participant behavior are at the discretion of NCA staff and are final.
All Attendees will act in a way to create a safe and supportive environment for all participants, and agree:
- You will not engage in disruptive or disrespectful speech or behavior or otherwise interfere with any portion of the event or other individuals’ participation in the event
