LPA Member Code of Conduct

Little People of America is committed to providing a safe, caring, healthy, and respectful environment for all members and guests. To promote these values, we ask individuals to act appropriately at all times when attending our events.

Our Member Code of Conduct dictates positive interactions with others, language free of anger or vulgarities, and actions at or above a generally accepted standard of conduct. The following conduct can lead to immediate suspension or termination of membership:

  • Violation of membership rules and policies in the LPA Bylaws and Policy Manual.
  • Physical contact with another person in an angry or threatening manner.
  • Angry or vulgar language including swearing, name-calling, or shouting.
  • Harassment or intimidation by words, gestures, body language, or any other menacing behavior.
  • Theft or behavior that results in the destruction of property belonging to the LPA its members or guests, or homes or facilities where events are taking place.
  • Carrying of concealed weapons or devices/objects that may be used as weapons.
  • Using or possessing illegal chemicals, tobacco, or alcohol during LPA events.
  • Any other conduct of an inappropriate, threatening or offensive nature.
  • Law enforcement may be called when applicable and/or necessary.
  • Any official action by LPA does not preclude legal recourse by the hotel, event venue, individual member or non-member, or outside entity.

The protection of our members and guests participating in our programs and events is a paramount interest of Little People of America. The LPA reserves the right to deny access or revoke membership to any person who violates the membership code of conduct. All members are expected to disclose any and all conduct that may restrict their involvement with minors or felonies that may restrict them as members not limited to but being on a national sexual registry. I understand that any misrepresentations or omissions may disqualify my membership.

This code of conduct is applicable at all LPA functions including national, district, and chapter. The board of directors of the governing body of the event has the responsibility and right to enforce the code of conduct and consequences.
