Membership Policies

Safer Space Policy

The Members and Board of New Amsterdam Science Fiction and Fantasy Fandom intend to have an enjoyable and friendly environment; therefore we have set up the following rules to make our space safe and fun for all. Any violation of these policies or other behaviors that the Board deem inappropriate will result in actions up to and including, but not limited to, revoking the offender’s membership.

Be respectful and courteous towards other attendees.

Unacceptable behavior is generally any behavior that annoys, alarms, or threatens another person or group. This includes unwanted physical contact, following someone around a public area without their consent, or threatening to physically attack someone. If you approach someone and they tell you “no” or to leave them alone, you must do so and have no further contact. If you fail to honor their request, they may have a legitimate complaint of unacceptable behavior.

Harassment of members or attendees at our events online or in electronic venues will be treated as seriously as physical harassment. If you aren’t sure what constitutes harassment, err on the side of caution and restrict your contact.

If you are having a problem, please contact the board at nasf3.org. They will assist you in reporting the incident and make sure that you get any help that is needed.

Please remember that we need to know about any incidents when they occur be able to take immediate action. If you have been accused of harassment and feel that our response was unjustified, you may appeal to the board, but their decision will be final.
