ACLM Statement on Meeting Conduct Expectations

ACLM is a unique organization whose members bring vital skills to the practice of clinical medicine within the construct of a legal framework.  This document emphasizes ACLM’s commitment to ensuring that our members act respectfully and with civility during our Annual Fellows Meeting, the social events we sponsor, and in the conduct of our professional lives. As role models for the future leaders in our organization, we must hold ourselves to the highest standards of decorum.  We aspire to be leaders who value fair treatment of others and have high regard for the differences that we each bring to this meeting and to our workplaces, as well as to the world that we share. 

Promoting excellence means that we will not tolerate acts of bullying, discrimination or harassment of any kind, whether during or surrounding the Annual meeting.  During our meeting please:

  • Carefully consider your speech and actions, to protect each other from demeaning, discriminatory, or harassing behavior and language.
  • Be mindful of your surroundings and of your fellow participants.
  • Remember that ACLM’s core mission of educating a diverse workforce of tomorrow's leaders and scholars in legal medicine requires us to stand against those who fail to meet our standards and to support those who are subject to any form of abuse.

If you are being harassed at this meeting, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have related concerns, please contact Veling Tsai, our College President, or any member of the ACLM staff or Board of Governors immediately.
