Policy on Program Content

The presentations at Active Professionals Conference belong to the presenters — BCRPA assumes no responsibility for any errors or omissions in the information presented. In addition, the views and opinions of the presenters are not necessarily those of the Association.

The program content is subject to change without notice.

Policy on Event Photography and Recording of Presentations

Photographs and recordings (audio and video) of Active Professionals Conference may be produced and may include your recognizable image. BCRPA uses these recordings for its print and electronic promotional material, including on the Internet via the BCRPA website or other social media websites.

If you do not agree to BCRPA’s recording policy, you must register your preference to a BCRPA staff member at the onsite registration desk. Your preference will be clearly indicated to inform staff photographers. 

Unauthorized recording (audio, video, still photography, etc.) of presentations at any BCRPA event by a presenter or the audience including sessions, plenaries, keynotes, etc., without the express written consent of the Chair of the event or designated BCRPA staff is strictly prohibited.

Any authorized recording must be disclosed to the Delegates in attendance in that session, prior to the commencement of the presentation and only record the presenter, not the audience. Further, any authorized recordings may not be used for commercial purposes or posted on any open public media source. Conduct that violates this policy may be subject to sanctions pursuant to BCRPA’s disciplinary policies.
