Meeting, Event, and Activity Conduct Policy

NRECA strives to create a safe, productive and welcoming environment free from discrimination, harassment, and retaliation for all who participate in NRECA-sponsored meetings, events and activities (“Events”). For purposes of this policy, harassment includes, but is not limited to, sexual harassment, offensive or physically threatening bodily contact, and intimidation or discrimination based on race/ethnicity, nationality, religion, age, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability or appearance. Sexual harassment includes any unwelcome sexual advances or attention, whether physical, virtual or verbal. Harassment, discrimination or intimidation of any kind will not be tolerated. 

This policy applies to all who participate in NRECA-sponsored Events including, but not limited to, attendees, NRECA staff, sponsors, vendors, guests, contractors, students and exhibitors. Participation constitutes agreement to comply with this policy as a condition of attendance.  

Suspected violations of this policy should be reported to Event sponsor or any member of NRECA management while on site at the Event or as soon as possible. Violations involving NRECA staff, members or contractors should be reported to NRECA’s Human Resources Department at humanresources@nreca.coop or in person if after the Event.

All reports will be treated seriously and investigated promptly. At NRECA’s sole discretion, policy violations may result in removal from or denial of access to NRECA-sponsored meetings, events and activities without refund of any applicable registration fee or other costs to the participant.

Side Meetings at NRECA Events Policy

NRECA understands that it may be convenient and economical to conduct various types of meetings in conjunction with an NRECA event.  To the extent that such side meetings do not conflict with or detract from the NRECA event, these meetings are permissible.  It is the policy of NRECA that no affiliate member, associate member, service member, sponsor, exhibitor, vendor and/or speaker will schedule and hold a side meeting (training meeting, demonstration meeting, member meeting, etc.) to which attendees of the NRECA event are invited to attend that conflicts with the NRECA program agenda.  Side meetings by affiliate members, associate members, service members, sponsors, exhibitors, vendors and/or speakers may only be held during non-scheduled program times.  Requests for meeting space held by NRECA in the event venue must be submitted in writing to the NRECA meeting planner for that event, along with the meeting title and description, desired room set-up, approximate number of participants, and meeting start and end times.  The requestor understands that it will assume all costs – food and beverage, audiovisual equipment, labor, etc. – associated with the side meeting.  NRECA does not make any guarantees regarding the availability of space for side meetings.  To the extent that such space is available, requests will be considered on a first come, first served basis. 

Exhibiting at NRECA Events Policy 

NRECA understands that there are numerous benefits associated with exhibiting at NRECA sponsored events, including increased exposure, reinforcement of message, recognition, and many more.   It is the policy of NRECA that only event sponsors – at any level – may exhibit at our conferences and meetings.  In other words, event exhibitors must be sponsors of the event as well.  The only exceptions to this policy are the TechAdvantage Conference & Expo and the INTERACT Conference.   Event sponsorship requests and requests for space to exhibit must be submitted to NRECA’s business development staff.  Requests will be considered on a first come, first served basis.
