ACPE Events and Conference Code of Conduct
When you register, attend or are a part of any function at an ACPE event, you voluntarily agree to abide by the following code of conduct. ACPE is committed to providing a friendly, safe, supportive, and harassment-free environment for all conference attendees and participants, regardless of gender, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, religion, or other group identity. It is important to remember that a community where people feel uncomfortable or threatened is not a productive one. Accordingly, ACPE prohibits intimidating, threatening, or harassing conduct during its conferences or events. Harassment includes deliberate intimidation, display of inappropriate images or recordings, sustained disruption of talks, and unwelcome physical contact.

This code of conduct applies to all event and conference attendees, including all members, speakers, media representatives, exhibitors, sponsors, volunteers, and staff. Harassment of participants will not be tolerated in any form, and ACPE expects immediate compliance from anyone asked to stop harassing behavior. Conference attendees and participants should respect common sense rules for public behavior, personal interaction, common courtesy, and respect for private property. If you wouldn’t do it at home or in the office, please do not do it here.

Please report any incidents in which a participant in the meeting is abusive, insulting, intimidating, or acting in an unsafe or illegal manner to an ACPE Board member immediately. The ACPE Board will be available during onsite during all events and conferences. They will be happy to assist participants with contacting venue security or local law enforcement. If you need assistance or wish to file a complaint, please contact JB Fitzpatrick, Executive Director, at jb@acpenw.org.
