Either party may voluntarily terminate this agreement at any time by providing written notice to the other party of its wish to terminate the agreement.

By agreeing to participate as a staff member at the Convention, I agree to abide by and act in accordance with the Code of Conduct as provided by the Convention. I agree that any violation of the Code of Conduct may result in disciplinary action against me, including but not limited to verbal and written warnings, suspension, or dismissal from my position as a staff member. I agree that any disciplinary action taken by the Convention shall be final.
- Rights to Works Created
I agree that any work created by me while working as a staff member shall become the intellectual property of the Convention, subject to state and federal law concerning intellectual property. Such work may include but is not limited to promotional material created for the benefit of the Convention, video or audio recordings taken on behalf of the Convention, and other works made on behalf of or for the benefit of the Convention and any of its attendees or patrons. I further consent to appear in any photographic or video-graphic promotional materials in which I may appear.
- “Hate Group” Membership
I affirm that I am not a member, officer, supporter, volunteer, patron of any anti-government, anti-police, hate speech, white-supremacist/white nationalist, neo-Nazi, or other group espousing discriminatory beliefs or views against any race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, or political ideology.I agree that the Convention reserves the right to define what groups constitute hate groups and that such definition may change without prior notice. The Convention initially defines the following groups as examples of “hate groups” it does not allow but reserves the right to amend this list at will: Furry Raiders, AltFurry, Ku Klux Klan, “Black Bloc” (group or tactic), and any group identified by the Southern Poverty Law Center and the Department of Justice as a hate group. This also includes anyone who promotes violence within their political group, regardless of political affiliation. I agree that membership or support of a hate group constitutes a violation of the Code of Conduct, which may result in disciplinary action as outlined in paragraph II of this agreement.
The parties agree that any matters relating to volunteering at the Convention shall be resolved, in the event necessary, by binding arbitration and a mutually agreed-upon arbitrator. The parties hereby consent to binding arbitration as to any disputes within the scope of this agreement.
