Conference Etiquette

Conference Etiquette: Commitment

The American Counseling Association is honored to provide a safe environment for the counselor community to come together to connect, engage, and learn. By registering to attend the ACA Conference & Expo, attendees agree to the following:

I pledge to conduct myself with integrity, courtesy, and respect for others. I will support a harassment-free event experience for everyone by maintaining the highest level of professionalism at all programs and events. I support and will foster a welcoming, safe experience for all attendees and conference staff.

Thank you for your commitment.

ACA provides a harassment-free conference experience for everyone, regardless of age, culture, disability, ethnicity, race, religion/spirituality, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, marital/partnership status, language preference, socioeconomic status, immigration status, or any basis proscribed by law.

We do not tolerate harassment of attendees, speakers, volunteers, partners, vendors, exhibitors or staff or others at meetings, conferences and other activities in any form.

* Participants violating these expectations may be asked to leave the conference at the sole discretion of ACA..
