All participants are strongly recommended to bring environmentally-friendly utensils and water bottles for their own use at the conference. NATSA collaborates with local vendors who provide biodegradable utensils and paper cups.


Social Media Use Policy

NATSA, in collaboration with The George Washington University, may photograph, broadcast and record some portions of the events at the conference, including through web streaming (for our public events) and photography, for the production of material distributed on our social media accounts, newsletters, and conference reports to NATSA’s partners and sponsors. Please don’t hesitate to contact NATSA’s Program Directors at if you find your photos being featured on our social media accounts and wish them to be removed from our social media use. 

Anti-Harassment Policy

NATSA strives to provide a safe and welcoming environment at its programs and events that are free from bias and intimidation for all participants. The Association does not tolerate discrimination or any forms of harassment, including but not limited to sexual harassment. 

Anyone who engages in discrimination or harassment conduct will be subject to discipline, up to and including expulsion from the NATSA program or event, and possible revocation of membership in the association.

If anyone experiences or witnesses any violation of the NATSA’s anti-harassment policy at a NATSA program or event, they should immediately report instances of harassment to the Program Directors at Reports will be treated as confidential.
