Conference Anti-Harassment Policy

The Financial Planning Association® (FPA®) is dedicated to providing a harassment-free conference. We value each attendee's participation and strive to deliver an enjoyable and fulfilling experience for all, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age or religion. We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants in nay form and all communication throughout the conference should be appropriate for a professional audience. Conference participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the conference [without a refund] at the discretion of the conference organizers.


  • We expect participants to follow the FPA Conference Anti-Harassment policy at all event venues and event-related social activities.
  • If a participant engages in harassing behavior, FPA retains the right to take any actions to keep the event a welcoming environment for all participants.


  • If someone makes you or anyone else feel unsafe, unwelcome and/or engages in inappropriate behavior, please report it as soon as possible to an FPA staff member. Our staff will ensure that you are safe and cannot be overhead when sharing the circumstance.

You may also choose to report the circumstance anonymously by filling out an Anonymous Report at The Anonymous Report does not require using your name or contact information.
