Arisia executive board, you have some EXPLAINING to do.

I am going to want my money back if someone on staff, who is NOT living up to the code of contact, is allowed to remain there. I am not going to let my teenager attend a conference where a predator might be able to get away with pushy, stalkery crap.

The Arisia Code of Conduct does indeed state: "Additionally, all Staff are representatives of Arisia and therefore are held to a higher standard of behavior, even when off duty."

This is not holding representatives of Arisia to a higher standard. This is allowing extremely "bad behavior" to go unremarked and hidden from the attendees and guests.

NOT OKAY, EXECUTIVE BOARD. NOT OKAY.
