Minicon 49 Code of Conduct

Code of Conduct

Minicon members are expected to behave courteously to their fellow members, hotel staff and others present. All members rightfully have an expectation of an environment free of violence, discrimination and harassment of any kind.

Definition of Harassment

Harassment is defined as unwelcome conduct or action(s) on the basis of a person's actual or perceived race, color, creed, ancestry, national origin, age, disability, gender, gender identity, marital status, sexual orientation, size, or status with regard to public assistance, although this list is not meant to be exhaustive. Sexual harassment is a type of harassment that includes unwelcome sexual advances, or unwelcome physical or verbal conduct of a sexual nature. Harassment of any kind can include words, gestures, images, stories, jokes, nicknames, or any other derogatory or demeaning action(s).


If person A tells person B to leave A alone, or to stop a harassing action directed at or involving A, or A does this at another's request, B is expected to comply immediately. This policy is not meant to forbid members from touching, talking or interacting with others, but to remind them that people have different boundaries. Members are expected to respect personal space and remember that consent is not only a reasonable expectation, but a welcome and appreciated component to happy interactions.

Minicon members are expected to offer assistance to people who appear to be being assaulted, discriminated against, harassed or otherwise mistreated, or to seek assistance for them.

If the registration desk is closed, call the number posted on the desk. During the hours posted on this sign, we will answer calls immediately.
