General Terms and Conditions for all Participants (including Exhibitor Personnel)

The North American Vascular Biology Organization (NAVBO) is committed to the principles of diversity, inclusion, integrity, civility, and respect in all of our activities. We look to you to be a partner in this commitment by helping us to maintain a professional and cordial environment. All forms of discrimination, harassment, and bullying are prohibited in any NAVBO activity whether in-person or online. This policy applies to all participants in all settings and locations in which NAVBO work and activities are conducted, including committee meetings, workshops, conferences, and other work and social functions, where employees, volunteers, sponsors, vendors, or guests are present.

Discrimination is prejudicial treatment of individuals or groups of people based on their race, ethnicity, color, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, religion, disability, veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by applicable laws.

Sexual harassment is unwelcomed sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature that creates an intimidating, hostile, or offensive environment.

Other types of harassment include any verbal (oral or written) or physical conduct directed at individuals or groups of people because of their race, ethnicity, color, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, religion, disability, veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by applicable laws, that creates an intimidating, hostile, or offensive environment.

Bullying is unwelcomed, aggressive behavior involving the use of influence, threat, intimidation, or coercion to dominate others in the professional environment.

Any violation of this policy should be reported. If you experience or witness discrimination, harassment, or bullying, you are encouraged to make your unease or disapproval known to the individual at the time the incident occurs if you are comfortable doing so. You are also urged to report any incident by:

  • Filing a complaint with the NAVBO Executive Officer at, or
  • Reporting the incident to a NAVBO Council or Committee Member involved in the activity in which the member or volunteer is participating, who will then file a complaint with the NAVBO Executive Officer.

Complaints should be filed as soon as possible after an incident. To ensure the prompt and thorough investigation of the complaint, the complainant should provide as much information as is possible, such as names, dates, locations, and steps taken. 

If someone makes you or anyone else feel unsafe or unwelcome, please report it as soon as possible to any NAVBO staff person (there will always be a staff person at the registration desk throughout the meeting during all session hours). You can make a report either personally or anonymously.

If an investigation results in a finding that an individual has committed a violation, NAVBO will take the actions necessary to protect those involved in its activities from any future discrimination, harassment, or bullying, including in appropriate circumstances the removal of an individual from current NAVBO activities and a ban on participation in future activities.

Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately. If a participant engages in harassing behavior, event organizers retain the right to take any actions to keep the event a welcoming environment for all participants. This includes warning the offender or expulsion from the conference with no refund.

Event organizers may take action to redress anything designed to, or with the clear impact of, disrupting the event or making the environment hostile for any participants. We expect participants to follow these rules at all event venues and event‐related social activities.

Harassment and other code of conduct violations reduce the value of our event for everyone.

Information contained in a complaint is kept confidential, and information is revealed only on a need-to-know basis. NAVBO will not retaliate or tolerate retaliation against anyone who makes a good faith report of discrimination, harassment, or bullying.

Photography within all sessions is STRICTLY PROHIBITED

You may not record, photograph or capture in anyway: slides projected on screens, verbal presentations of speakers, or posters on display.
