Core values of the national Community Action Partnership are equity and respect. Partnership members and event participants are expected to foster an inclusive, cooperative environment where all are welcomed, open dialogue is encouraged and all perspectives are appreciated.

Every member and event participant is expected to act in a professional, responsible and respectful manner while engaged in Partnership events and activities. Unprofessional behavior, including disparaging comments and unwelcome conduct related to sex, race, color, gender, age, disability, orientation or religion, will not be tolerated.

If any member or event participant engages in unprofessional behavior, Partnership leadership may take any action it deems appropriate, ranging from a simple warning to the offender to expulsion from current and future activities.

The Partnership’s intent is to foster the respectful behavior embodied in the Code of Conduct. Partnership staff will be happy to help event participants with Code of Conduct concerns.
