Code of Conduct

Just like at a face-to-face conference, we expect you to behave! AAEP has zero tolerance for any form of discrimination or harassment, either in person or on-line. Online harassment includes spam, cyberbullying, and disruptive or repetitive posts in discussion forums, chats, polls and question-and-answer sections of the Convention platform. If you experience harassment or witness any incidents of unacceptable behavior, the AAEP asks that you inform Lori Rawls, AAEP’s director of finance and operations, at so that appropriate action can be taken. Disruptive behavior during live sessions may result in temporary or permanent blocking from participation without refund.


Your participation in this event involves a certain degree of risk of loss, harm or injury to your person or property, including, but not limited to harm from contracting COVID-19 or other viruses, acts of God, theft, fire or accident. I also understand that participation in this event is entirely voluntary and that AAEP requires attendees to abide by any applicable rules of conduct or local or state laws that may be announced at any time during the event, which may include wearing personal protective gear and engaging in social distancing. While AAEP is the sponsor of this event and takes commercially responsible steps to require the event facility to maintain the venue in a safe and healthy condition, you must understand and acknowledge that AAEP has no direct control over and is not responsible for the acts or omissions of the facility or others involved in producing this event. You are asked to carefully consider the risk involved and waive and release AAEP and all its officers, directors, employees, staff, volunteers, faculty and affiliates from any and all claims, damages, injuries, or expenses that you may incur from your participation in this event.
