NASFAA Event Conduct Policy


NASFAA is committed to providing a safe, productive and harassment-free environment at its conferences, trainings, board and committee meetings, and other NASFAA-sponsored events. NASFAA prohibits harassment or discrimination based on race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, disability, ethnicity, national origin, or other protected status. It also prohibits sexual harassment or intimidation, including unwelcome sexual attention, stalking (physical or virtual), or unsolicited physical contact; and threatening behavior.


We ask that all event participants:

  • Be polite, considerate, inclusive, and respectful.
  • Avoid using derogatory, discriminatory, non inclusive language.

Discrimination, bullying, intimidation, stalking, and harassment will not be tolerated. Nor will threatening or illegal activity. These conduct rules apply to all attendees and participants at all NASFAA-sponsored events, including in online events and trainings. Any violations should be reported immediately as outlined below. 

Violations to the Policy

When attendees are asked to cease unacceptable behavior, they are expected to comply immediately. NASFAA reserves the right to remove any individual from attendance or ban participation in any NASFAA-sponsored event without prior warning or refund, and to take additional action as determined necessary, ranging from issuing a warning to permanent suspension of NASFAA membership.

Reporting Policy Violations

Violations, or perceived violations, of this policy should be reported immediately to a member of the NASFAA staff, either by pulling a staff member aside at an in-person event or by emailing [email protected]. We also expect event participants to alert staff or security if they witness any dangerous situations or persons in distress.
