NAN 2021 Conference Policies
Virtual Conference Code of Conduct
The Virtual Conference Code of Conduct of the National Academy of Neuropsychology (NAN) supplements NAN’s general conduct policies and seeks to advance productive outcomes, with safety, full participation and belonging for all participants in NAN virtual conference. Prior to a virtual conference, participants are expected to be familiar with this policy.
Participants must register for a virtual conference and provide an email or other contact where they can be reached during the virtual event. Registration constitutes consent to audio and visual recording (and use and alteration of the recording) by NAN (or those it authorizes) at the conference for non-commercial purposes aligned with NAN’s mission. Failure to register, provide such contact, or be available via the contact provided is grounds for being disconnected from the virtual event at the participant’s cost, without further notice or process.
Virtual Conference Code of Conduct
- To achieve the purposes of a National Academy of Neuropsychology Virtual Conference in the limited time provided, with the universal benefit of all participants’ being fully engaged, discussions should be focused on the meeting topic at hand and all participants must be able and welcome to equitably and effectively participate.
- It is not a violation of the NAN Virtual Conference Code of Conduct to express an opinion, raise research or describe an experience (“articulation”) that is at odds with the opinions of others—if the articulation is part of an on-point discussion of the topic at hand and is offered in a manner that does not interfere with others’ reasonable ability and welcome to participate fully. That means expressing differing positions with respect and consideration for all, in a manner that reflects intellectual rigor and is demonstrably mindful of minimizing, as reasonably possible, its potential adverse effect on others’ ability to participate.
- Unacceptable Behavior is defined as:
- Harassment, intimidation, or discrimination in any form.
- Verbal or written abuse of any attendee, speaker, volunteer, exhibitor, NAN staff member, service provider, or other meeting guest.
- Examples of verbal or written abuse include, but are not limited to, inappropriate 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, staff member, service provider, or other meeting guest.
- Disruption of presentations during sessions or activities, in the exhibit space, or at other events organized by NAN throughout the virtual conference. All participants must comply with the instructions of the moderator and any NAN virtual event staff.
Presentations, postings, and messages should not contain promotional materials, special offers, job offers, product announcements, or solicitation for services. NAN provides specific avenues for these types of postings and 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.
NAN 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 NAN reserves the right to prohibit attendance at any future meeting, virtually or in person.
NAN 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, NAN asks that you inform either Dr. William Perry, NAN Executive Director, firstname.lastname@example.org or Kate Braddon, Education and Events Manger, email@example.com so that we can take the appropriate action.
