  • Use of hateful, obscene, defamatory, discriminatory, or violent language.
  • Inappropriate use of sexual language, nudity and/or images.
  • Deliberate intimidation, stalking or following.
  • Unwelcome or uninvited attention or contact with another participant.
  • Expressed or implied threat of physical or professional harm.
  • Harassing photography or recording.
  • Sustained disruption of presentations, sessions, or other events.

Consequences of unacceptable behavior:

NAFA reserves the right to take any action deemed necessary and appropriate in response to any incident of unacceptable behavior, including immediate removal from the 2024 Annual Convention without warning or refund and restrictions on attendance at future NAFA meetings.

If you experience harassment, notice unacceptable behavior, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of the NAFA staff or NAFA Board of Directors immediately. All complaints will be treated seriously and responded to promptly.  All reports are confidential. We value your participation at the Annual Convention.
