Chapter Policies

CAI-Channel Islands Chapter has the following policies in place to encourage a respectful networking experience for everyone. If you have any questions, please contact Executive Director, Leah Ross at 805-658-1438 or email cai@cai-channelislands.org.

CAI-Channel Islands Chapter No Suitcasing Policy

CAI – Channel Islands Chapter relies on the generosity of its sponsors and exhibitors, and in return strictly prohibits companies or individuals not registered as sponsors or exhibitors of a chapter event from soliciting sales or sales leads, offering or promoting goods or services at that event, or soliciting participants for their company's social activities. Non-exhibiting business partners may exchange their business cards only when asked. 

Those violating this policy will receive an initial warning.  If any further violation occurs, the violator may be charged the exhibitor sponsorship rate for that event in question, and/or the Chapter's Executive Committee may take additional actions available to the Chapter, as it deems appropriate.

CAI-Channel Islands Chapter Member Professionalism Policy

CAI – Channel Islands Chapter operates upon mutual respect and professionalism among its members, and therefore has the following guidelines in place to promote the highest level of professional conduct and ethical behavior among its members.

  • The Chapter prohibits companies or individuals soliciting event attendees for their own or their company's employment or competing social activities, but does not prohibit an attendee from providing a business card to an individual who requests one.
  • The Chapter prohibits conduct by individuals toward others that could be reasonably interpreted by the recipient, or by the Chapter, as constituting unwelcome physical conduct, verbal conduct, or sexual harassment.

Violators of this policy will receive an initial warning. If the offending behavior reoccurs after a warning has been issued, the Executive Committee may take additional actions available to the Chapter as it deems appropriate, which may include, but is not limited to the ability to attend chapter events and if applicable, a formal complaint submitted to the CAI-National Designation Ethics Committee.
