Code of Conduct for NJLA Conference

Code of Conduct for NJLA Conference

The New Jersey Library Association sponsors a variety of forums, meetings and professional development opportunities, including the annual spring Conference.  The purpose of these events is to provide NJ librarians with opportunities to learn, connect and grow, which we believe to have a positive impact on the development and improvement of libraries throughout the state.

NJLA does not tolerate harassment of members, attendees, staff, venue workers, speakers or other participants at any meetings or events sponsored by the organization.  Speakers are asked to frame discussion as openly and inclusively as possible and to be aware of how language or images may be perceived by others.  Participants may - and do - exercise their option to leave a session or a conversation.  As a statewide professional development association for librarians and library workers in New Jersey, the events sponsored by NJLA are an extension of work and no person should work under threat of harassment.

In an effort to create an environment based on mutual respect and free of harassment, some behaviors are specifically prohibited:
  • stalking (physically or virtually)
  • offensive verbal comments
  • bathroom policing
  • unwelcome physical attention or contact
  • intimidation
  • physical assault and/or battery
  • sustained disruption of events

All participants and presenters are expected to observe these rules and behaviors at all NJLA meetings or events. Any breach of this code of conduct should be reported immediately to the NJLA Executive Director or Event Organizers, who will determine appropriate action and consequences.
