Acumatica Summit 2020 Code of Conduct

Purpose

We believe our community should be truly open to everyone. As such, we are committed to providing a friendly, safe, and welcoming environment for all, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, ethnicity, or religion.

This code of conduct outlines our expectations for participation behavior, as well as the consequences for unacceptable behavior. We invite all sponsors, speakers, attendees, media, exhibitors, and other participants to help us realize a safe and positive conference experience for everyone. All determinations of appropriate or inappropriate behavior are in Acumatica’s sole discretion, and the decision(s) of the event representatives onsite will be final.

Acumatica events are designed to realize our mission to make the benefits of digital transformation accessible to small and mid-market businesses through intelligent and scalable technology, thoughtful user experiences, and unrivaled support enabling them to better serve their customers. We bring together people with a common agenda, cause, and interests, who collaborate by sharing ideas, information, and resources. It is of utmost importance to Acumatica that each and every person attending one of our events has a positive and rewarding experience. To that end, we invite all sponsors, volunteers, speakers, attendees, vendors, and others (“Participants”) to help us realize a safe, respectful, and positive experience for everyone.

Acumatica has established this Code of Conduct to provide guidelines to Participants and to ensure that all Participants understand what behavior is expected, and what behavior will not be tolerated at our events. Acumatica expects all Participants to abide by this Code of Conduct at all events. This includes conference-related social events at off-site locations, and in related online communities and social media.

Acumatica is dedicated to providing a harassment-free and inclusive event experience for everyone regardless of gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disabilities, neurodiversity, physical appearance, body size, ethnicity, nationality, race, age, religion, or other protected category.
