SHARING MATERIALS


NAPPC participants are welcome to bring materials to display or to give away at the Conference (incl. papers, brochures, handbooks, buttons, or other giveaways - remember they will all have to go through the metal detector). If you have items to sell (i.e. books or other materials), we encourage you to bring a display copy (clearly marked “Display Copy”), and include information on how participants may order a copy. Materials cannot be sold in DOI Buildings




GROUND RULES


The following ground rules provide a statement of how we propose to work together at the upcoming conference.  These ground rules have been reviewed and approved by the Steering Committee as part of Conference planning.  We request that you carefully review these prior to the meeting. Please call Laurie Davies Adams directly at 415.362.1137 to discuss any questions or comments you might have, or if you feel that for any reason you cannot participate in adherence to these guidelines.

Communication Among Participants
The success of all projects depend upon open communication and cooperation.  Therefore, the following guidelines will apply:

  • Each person is asked to fully participate in the Conference deliberations.  The Task Force Chair(s) will ensure that all participants who want to contribute to discussions are allowed the time to do so. Therefore, participants are requested not to dominate the discussions; if this occurs the Task Force Chair(s) will intervene to ensure all parties have a chance to talk.
  • The Steering Committee has identified certain subjects that have the potential to sidetrack progress on moving the Action Plan forward.  Due to the limited time we have together at the Conference, genetically modified organisms and collections versus observation will not be discussed during the Conference.
  • Any concerns about the conduct of the deliberations or the issues being discussed should be fully aired to the Task Force Chair(s) or the Steering Committee Members in private if appropriate to ensure that the deliberations are effective and positive.  NAPPC participants should feel free to work collaboratively and openly. Please respect all perspectives. Disagreements or conflicts will be addressed as issues to be resolved rather than battles to be won.
  • Any commitments made should not be taken lightly and follow through will be expected. Committees and Task Forces will be facilitated and recorded by volunteer participants
