If you are a presenter at one of our events, we will collect information about you including your name, employer and contact information, and photograph, and we may also collect information provided by event attendees who evaluated your performance as a presenter. As an attendee, speaker, or sponsor/exhibitor, we will keep a record of your participation to provide you with post-event information including details on upcoming events you may be interested in. Your contact information may be shared via an event mobile app or attendee list as part of your participation in the event. Your hotel reservation information may be shared between SCIP and the hotel.

GUEST ATTENDANCE POLICY
All conference activities (including educational sessions, meal functions, exhibit hall, etc.) are exclusively reserved for conference attendees. Non-registered guests (including children, family members, colleagues, etc.) are not allowed in the conference areas. Badges provided at registration are required for entrance into all functions and will be strictly enforced.
SCIP has a spouse/guest fee for attendance at SCIP meetings by those not eligible for SCIP membership. This is a restricted fee intended for family members. Any spouse/guest who is interested in networking with other spouses/guests as well as friends in SCIP may pay a fee to cover the costs of food and beverage and attendance at the evening events. This $150 fee includes the Opening Reception and Tuesday Evening Event, but does not include attendance to conference sessions, meal functions (outside of receptions) and conference materials. ANYONE CONSULTING WITH, OR EMPLOYED BY, AN ORGANIZATION ELIGIBLE FOR MEMBERSHIP IN SCIP IS NOT ELIGIBLE FOR THIS FEE.
CODE OF ETHICS
All attendees (including but not limited to speakers, substitutes, and volunteers) agree to adhere to the SCIP Code of Conduct, Ethics, and the Antitrust Policy. Any attendee observed to be in violation of either the Code or Policy will be immediately asked to leave, and no refund will be provided.

Although numerous industries are represented in our membership, there are nonetheless competitors at our events, both in-person and virtual. As such, it is important that all participants at SCIP events are educated and vigilant about the applicable antitrust laws. At industry meetings any discussions among competitors of current costs, prices or fees relative to your products or to others’ products and services, or focusing on the “cons” of working with third parties, could constitute antitrust violations. Although our meetings aren't industry-specific, any discussions of the following issues (whether in the business sessions, breakouts, or social events) are not appropriate and should be immediately brought to the attention of the SCIP team:
