AABA Code of Conduct

By applying for, renewing, and maintaining membership, or participating in any American Association of Biological Anthropologists (AABA) sponsored events (including, but not limited to participation as a volunteer, vendor, exhibitor, registrant, member of the public, or guest), as well as for registering to attend an AABA Annual Meeting, you agree to follow this AABA Code of Conduct, along with the AABA (AAPA) Code of Ethics and the AABA (AAPA) Statements on Sexual and other Harassment, which are incorporated in this Code of Conduct. You also agree to abide by all sanctions imposed by authorized adjudicating bodies.

Among other things, these documents recognize that:

The AABA reserves all rights to take any lawful and appropriate remedial and/or preventative action with respect to any individual who does not abide by this Code of Conduct and/or the incorporated policies, or disregards or violates sanctions imposed by other adjudicating bodies (e.g., court orders, universities) including without limitation removal from a meeting, reporting of incident(s) to appropriate authorities at the individual’s home institution(s), barring the individual from future AABA meetings or events, and termination of the individual’s membership in the organization.

The Code of Conduct was unanimously accepted by the AABA Executive Committee in July 2019.
