Rules of Conduct


Our goal is to educate and inform our members so that they can succeed in their careers. In order for our monthly meetings, as well as all other DFW SPSUG activities and events to be positive experiences, we have established a few simple guidelines that we expect everyone to follow:

Appropriate Language: The purpose of our events is to exchange information and expertise. Please avoid personal attacks, slurs, profanity, threats, and legal violations in your interactions. Everyone must be treated with respect, and all conversations should be on a professional level.

Advertising/Solicitation: Meeting sponsors invest their money and time in exchange for the marketing opportunity that our events present to them. Attendees and speakers should refrain from performing any marketing activities that conflict or negatively impact the event sponsor”s interests.

Venue/Event Location: Our group relies on sponsors. Microsoft contributes greatly by allowing us to use their facilities and all of the overhead that goes along with it, including room set-up and cleaning, electricity, and overtime pay for the employees that host us. Please show your thanks by picking up your trash and disposing of it in the trash containers, and leave chairs and tables neat and orderly, as they were before our meeting started. The same applies to keeping restrooms tidy.

Liability: Each individual is responsible for his or her actions. Neither DFW SPC officers nor venue sponsor/owner shall be liable for an individual’s actions.

In addition to upholding these rules of conduct, you are responsible for adhering to all local and national laws that pertain to the location of the events you attend.

DFW SPC officers reserve the right to amend or change these rules of conduct without notice. By being a DFW SPC member you agree to abide by group rules.
