CAI is committed to providing a safe, productive, and welcoming environment for all course participants and CAI staff. All participants, including, but not limited to, students, instructors, volunteers, CAI staff members, Business Partners, and all others are expected to abide by this Virtual Courses Code of Conduct. This Policy applies to all CAI events.
CAI 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, CAI asks that you inform firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can take the appropriate action.
Unacceptable Behavior is defined as:
Examples of verbal abuse include, but are not limited to, verbal comments related to age, 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 student, instructor, volunteer, CAI staff member, Business Partner, or other guest.
In addition, participants are asked to adhere to the following rules:
CAI reserves the right to take any action deemed necessary and appropriate, including immediate removal from the course without warning or refund, in response to any incident of unacceptable behavior, and CAI reserves the right to prohibit attendance at any future meeting, virtually or in person.
CAI Suitcasing Policy
CAI has a no-tolerance policy regarding “suitcasing,” which describes the practice by nonsponsoring companies or individuals of soliciting sales or sales leads during the course and/or wearing company logo wear. The use of company logos on virtual backgrounds, wearing logo clothing virtually, and solicitation to sell your product virtually in the conference platform is considered suitcasing. Nonsponsoring companies or individuals are prohibited from soliciting business in the virtual platform.
Violators of these policies will be removed from the course and charged the full registration rate, which must be paid prior to registering as an attendee, exhibitor, or sponsor at any future CAI course or other event.
