Please read below for some guidelines regarding interactions during the 2024 in-person conference. Failure to follow these guidelines may result in being removed from the conference. As always, consent is key.

Please follow all current protocols regarding COVID-19 and any other health issue or emergency that may be relevant at the time of the conference. This includes but is not limited to any protocols related to travel, in-person indoor activities, California and/or Los Angeles-based restrictions, and Woodbury University Campus restrictions. You are responsible for following all current health protocols. We highly recommend current vaccinations for those who are able. Please do not attend if you are unwell.

Some portions of the conference will be recorded. We will do our best not to record anyone without express permission. We would prefer if you would refrain from recording the conference and/or sharing portions of the conference on social media without prior permission of those involved. There are designated areas where live recordings and social media posts can be made for your personal use.

ASL interpreters are available on site. We have done our best to enforce closed-captioning on all pre-recorded video materials. Also, special seating is available for better viewing of the interpreters, as well as for others who need better access. The venue is wheelchair accessible, with ramps and elevators that can be used to access the necessary buildings and restrooms. If you need assistance, please ask one of our volunteers to help you.

Gender-neutral restrooms are available on site.

We recommend bringing a refillable water bottle (some will be available for sale as well) and a sweater or other layered clothing. The auditorium tends to be colder than other rooms and the temperature cannot be easily adjusted to suit everyone’s needs. Please anticipate your own needs and dress comfortably.

If you are unsure, ask. Consent is key.

We have done our best to anticipate the needs of all conference attendees, however if you find that you are in need of something, please ask one of the volunteers.

Please use the break times for lengthier discussions and networking.
