TIAC Virtual Meeting Code of Conduct
TIAC is committed to providing a safe, productive, and welcoming environment for all meeting participants and TIAC staff. All participants, including, but not limited to, attendees, speakers, volunteers, exhibitors, TIAC staff members, service providers, and all others are expected to abide by this Virtual Meeting Code of Conduct.
TIAC has zero-tolerance for any form of discrimination or harassment, including but not limited to sexual harassment by participants or our staff at our meetings. If you experience harassment or hear of any incidents of unacceptable behavior, TIAC asks that you inform Ken Ross, VP, Events and Industry Services at [email protected] or 613-864-4931.
Unacceptable Behavior is defined as:
- Harassment, intimidation, or discrimination in any form.
- Verbal abuse of any attendee, speaker, volunteer, exhibitor, TIAC staff member, service provider, or other meeting guest.
- Examples of verbal abuse include, but are not limited to, verbal comments related to gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion, national origin, inappropriate use of nudity and/or sexual images in public spaces or in presentations, or threatening or stalking any attendee, speaker, volunteer, exhibitor, TIAC staff member, service provider, or other meeting guest.
- Disruption of presentations during sessions, in the exhibit hall, or at other events organized by TIAC throughout the virtual meeting. All participants must comply with the instructions of the moderator and any TIAC virtual event staff.
- Presentations, postings, and messages should not contain promotional materials, special offers, job offers, product announcements, or solicitation for services. TIAC reserves the right to remove such messages and potentially ban sources of those solicitations.
- Participants should not copy or take screen shots of Q&A or any chat room activity that takes place in the virtual space.
TIAC reserves the right to take any action deemed necessary and appropriate, including immediate removal from the meeting without warning or refund, in response to any incident of unacceptable behavior, and TIAC reserves the right to prohibit attendance at any future meeting, virtually or in person.
