Code of Conduct for CAS Events

Code of Conduct for CAS Events

The CAS is an international organization, committed to meeting the demands of a global economy. We are a listening organization that welcomes diverse perspectives. We value the participation of each member of the community and desire to offer professional education in a fun and safe learning environment. The CAS is dedicated in providing a positive conference experience for everyone and will not tolerate harassment, discrimination or any other improper behavior of conference participants in any form.

Scope of the Code:

All event participants, CAS staff members, guests, sponsors, speakers, partners, exhibitors, volunteers, and vendors/exhibitors must comply with this Code of Conduct for CAS Events. We ask that you join us in agreeing to engage, collaborate, and connect with other participants and event attendees in healthy ways.  Specifically, we ask that you:

  • Share from your own experience,
  • Assume the best intentions of others,
  • Disagree with ideas, not people,
  • Be open to other people’s perspectives, and
  • Treat everyone with respect.

Registration and attendance at CAS meetings, seminars, webinars and other activities constitutes an agreement by the registrant to: demonstrate respect and consideration for all people; communicate openly and thoughtfully with others; be respectful in discussing and debating ideas; be collaborative; be mindful of your surroundings; comply with venue regulations; report conduct concerns so that they can be addressed responsibly in a timely fashion. If any leader or facilitator of the event directs you to stop a behavior, you must comply immediately.

Consequence of Violation of the Code:

The safety of our community is our top priority. Event participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the conference without a refund at the discretion of the event organizers and could result in suspension from attending future meetings and/or referral to an appropriate disciplinary body. If necessary, CAS will contact proper authorities, including but not limited to event security and/or law enforcement.


While we have every faith that our dynamic community will embrace these sentiments and encourage others to do the same, we do have a plan in place if anyone should fall short of expectations. If you are directly affected or witness behavior that could constitute a code of conduct violation, please contact a CAS staff member at the event who will provide you with an incident report form for you to complete. In addition, you can email to request an electronic copy of the form.

Under the direction of the CEO, CAS will conduct a prompt and thorough investigation into your complaint, and you will be notified of the CAS’s intended action. Please note that all reports will be kept confidential.

Thank you in advance for helping to make this CAS event a safe and rewarding experience. We would not be the strong organization we are without your help. Please enjoy the conference!

Selection of CAS Conference Locations

How does the CAS select in-person conference locations?

The decision on where to host CAS conferences considers a variety of factors. We strive to hold our four largest events (RPM, Spring, CLRS and Annual) in the Southeast, Northeast, Midwest, and West regions of the United States. Our goal is to enable those members who may only attend one event in a calendar year to have one of our four major events held in their region. For members who annually attend the same large CAS event, that event will be located in their region every four years. We also aim to host one of our conferences in Canada every four to six years.

We remain focused on locations that are both convenient for travel, for example, cities that can be reached via a direct flight from the majority of North America, and that are appealing to potential attendees.

What do you do to ensure members feel welcomed, included, and safe during in-person conferences?

The CAS represents members and candidates of all races, ethnicities, religions, genders, sexual orientations, and socioeconomic classes, and creating a safe, welcoming, and inclusive environment for them is our foremost concern when planning in-person events. The CAS requires anyone in our conference spaces to be a registered attendee of the event, and we post signage and have staff monitor badges to keep non-registered people from accessing our area. We also ask attendees to abide by the Code of Conduct for CAS Events.

The CAS prioritizes conference vendors that are committed to providing a safe and inclusive environment for all of our attendees.

What options exist for those who are not able or do not feel safe attending an in-person conference in a certain location?

CAS members have the ability to select from several different conferences and conference locations each year. All of our large events also include a livestream virtual option so attendees can participate in high-quality and interactive continuing education opportunities and networking from anywhere in the world.
