Families and Guests
While families are extremely important to us, we are unable to accommodate extra guests, including family members and children at this conference. Lodging accommodations will not be provided for guests. Additionally, guests will not be allowed in the main sessions, meals or in breakouts. Please make alternate arrangements for any lodging and/or childcare needs.
Since the Prevention Summit will have an awesome disco/retro-themed dance, costumes will be allowed during the dance. In order to maintain a safe and enjoyable environment for all participants the following policy will apply:
• Costumes must be decent and appropriate in nature and content. Costumes that carry a sexual, vulgar or offensive message, or reference the use of alcohol, tobacco, drugs, gambling, or gang affiliation will not be permitted.
• Masks that cover all or part of the face are not to be worn.
• It is understood that the chaperones, in consultation with the conference staff, may restrict appearance and attire with special consideration for safety, health or other issues that may create a disruption to other conference participants.
• Entrance will be refused until the participant corrects the problem.
Special arrangements may be made for guests of Awardees during the Award Ceremony. If you are a guest of an Awardee, please contact Julia Greeson at Julia.email@example.com in order to receive a ticket.
