A. Conference Program and Presentations

1. GCCA reserves the right to make any changes to the program in its sole discretion. Every effort will be made to keep presentations and speakers as represented. However, unforeseen circumstances may result in the substitution of one or more presentation topic(s) or speaker(s).

2. GCCA makes no endorsements of any presentation or product. The views, opinions, displays and presentations by speakers, exhibitors and sponsors at the event do not necessarily reflect those of GCCA.

3. Due to limitations imposed especially by certain plenary speakers, Registrants are to refrain from the audio- or videotaping of any presenters or speakers for any reason or purpose.

4. In the event that the Conference has to be cancelled, delayed, interrupted or the schedule altered due to events beyond the reasonable control of GCCA or the conference organizers, GCCA will not be held liable to Registrants for any damages, losses or costs incurred, including but not limited to transportation and accommodation costs. GCCA is not liable for changes in program date, content, speakers or venue.

5. Registrants give permission for the Hotel to provide GCCA with information about their stay at the hotel, including their name. Registrants agree to defend and indemnify GCCA and Hotel and their affiliates from and against any and all claims arising out of Hotel providing GCCA the information. 

B. Professional Decorum

1. Registrants are expected to behave in a professional manner. Obscene, unseemly, abusive or threatening behavior directed to any other person is not conducive to a collegial learning environment.
