Our Community Code of Conduct and Non-Solicitation Policy

 

At NEXUS we think of our Members and community as a family and want you to too. You come to NEXUS to learn, to be inspired, to offer your help. But we know the reason you really come to NEXUS is for the people. So please treat everyone with respect. Follow the golden rule and help keep our family happy, healthy and secure so that we can all thrive together.

Our Community Code of Conduct:

NEXUS is committed to creating a safe and open environment where Members can collaborate in a space that is free from solicitation in any form. Our non-solicitation policy covers all Summits, Salons, and any other NEXUS sponsored events, trips, and Delegations which is why everyone who comes to a Summit must sign the code.

We may conduct background checks on Members and do not tolerate harassment, discrimination, or any activity that is considered a violation of local, state, or federal laws. NEXUS is a relational organization, not transactional. Solicitation activities such as introducing oneself in person or digitally for the purpose of selling products/services or handing out promotional materials during events are strictly prohibited.

If you experience or witness behavior among NEXUS Members that is not above-board you may report it via redflag@nexusglobal.org or via the form below. The NEXUS Values Council, an independent body comprised solely of NEXUS Members, reviews concerns reported to redflag@nexusglobal.org. Please note that all correspondence with this email address is strictly confidential. The NEXUS Values Council reserves the right to take further action if necessary toward any Member, speaker, sponsor or partner that is found to be in violation of the Code of Conduct. We appreciate your assistance in maintaining a respectful and supportive environment for all.
