Behaviors that will result in immediate dismissal include: causing injury to oneself, another teen, staff member or guest; theft or causing damage to hotel or other’s property; violating curfew (leaving one’s assigned sleeping room after “lights out”); possession of fireworks or firearms; smoking; consumption/ possession of drugs/alcohol or any substance used to create an unnatural high; entering a sleeping room of the opposite gender at any time; gambling; sexual harassment; hazing or demonstrating violent behavior. Participants may not leave the program (except in the case of a medical emergency) from the time of arrival until the time that IC concludes. All participants are strictly prohibited from leaving the hotel grounds unless as a part of a program and with staff supervision. Participants must attend and be on time to all programs and scheduled sessions, including meals. All participants must act respectfully toward fellow teens, guests and staff. Vulgar language and inappropriate gestures – even jokingly – will not be tolerated. This applies to the use of social media. We will be joined by many guests representing a plurality of opinions and associations. While they are in our “home,” we will be good hosts and show respect at all times. Conduct that endangers the safety, morals, health or welfare of others will not be tolerated. Hotels are busy, open spaces. Please be respectful of other guests by keeping noise down, and do not congregate in hallways, lobbies or enter other groups’ convention spaces. Visitors are not allowed at IC 2015 at any time. Requests for room changes will not be honored. Should you lose your room key, please visit the IC Welcome Center for help. Please report any and all damages in your room – heating/cooling, plumbing, furniture, etc. – to a staff member. Any unreported damages will be charged to ALL guests in the room. We will not be distributing medication during IC unless we receive a specific request from an IC family. Under no circumstances shall a teen share, sell or trade medication of any type – over-the-counter or prescription. You may bring food, but all containers must have their original seal intact. HOMEMADE BAKED GOODS ARE PROHIBITED. Bags will be checked upon arrival. Please do not bring any food products containing nuts, meat or shellfish. Proper/respectful attire must be worn at all times. Please wear shoes in the public spaces of the hotel. General Information The following expectations and guidelines will be in effect throughout BBYO International Convention 2015: 9
