Thank you for participating in the Portland coffee community! We hope that you are able to learn, network and grow with fellow coffee professionals by attending our events. We’re here to make that possible and provide the best possible environment for everyone involved. For all that to happen, we have a few rules that are necessary for the safety and comfort of everyone. We simply ask that you respect and observe these rules. We want to come together as a community, look out for one another, and ensure everyone is treated with respect.
Portland Coffee Social Club maintains a zero tolerance policy for harassment, violent behavior, and sexually offensive behavior or actions. This includes, but is not limited to: harassment toward another individual on the basis of gender, sex, pregnancy, childbirth, religion, creed, race, color, national origin, medical condition, genetic disorder, physical or mental disability, marital status, age, or sexual orientation; physical or verbal threats; unwelcome attention; deliberate intimidation; bullying; stalking; use of physical force; behavior that creates a disturbance or is dangerous, including lewd or generally offensive behavior or language; using sexually explicit or offensive language or conduct; and obscene gestures. Anyone found to be behaving in any way that violates this policy, either in person or online, may be removed from the event without refund and may be banned from future PCSC events.
PCSC has taken steps to make it easier to report instances of offensive behavior. It is very important to us that, if you experience any form of harassment, you can and should report it immediately. We cannot address anything that we are not made aware of, and we need whatever detail can be provided, such as names or other descriptive information. If you experience or witness harassment, threatening behavior, or other inappropriate conduct, you are strongly encouraged to promptly find the nearest PCSC volunteer for assistance. You may also reach out to our leadership team at portlandcoffeeclub at gmail dot com and your complaint will be responded to swiftly. If, at any time, you feel that your personal safety or the safety of others is in jeopardy, please contact 911.
PCSC is not responsible for lost, stolen, or damaged property, or for injuries sustained during the course of an event. No firearms or other weapons are ever allowed inside our events. Illegal drugs are never allowed inside of our events. Alcohol may be served or be otherwise available; but disorderly conduct is never allowed. Members doing willful damage to PCSC property will be required to financially reimburse PCSC or the venue. We reserve the right to remove attendees if you violate this Code of Conduct. Please respect those that do not wish to be photographed or recorded by asking permission to take pictures. Have fun, be safe, be respectful and remember to use good judgment and professionalism in all situations.
If an attendee violates the Code of Conduct, they may be barred from PCSC Events for a specific amount of time or, in severe cases, be barred from all future events. If an individual breaks the law, they will be subject to being reported to the proper law enforcement authorities.
