HFMA Code of Conduct

We value the participation of each member of the community. Our goal is to foster a supportive community where professionals from all backgrounds can come together to learn, collaborate, and advance the field of healthcare financial management. We remain committed to creating an inclusive and respectful environment at our events, where all attendees feel welcomed, supported, and valued.

All attendees, speakers, organizers, volunteers, partners, vendors, and staff at any HFMA events are required to observe the following Code of Conduct.

  • Conference participants are expected to conduct themselves with integrity, courtesy and respect for others and maintain the highest level of professionalism at all conference programs and events.
  • All communication should be appropriate for a professional audience including people of diverse backgrounds and cultures. Sexual language and imagery are not appropriate for the conference.
  • Be kind to others. Refrain from demeaning, discriminatory, or harassing behavior and speech.

HFMA retains the right to take any actions against participants engaging in harassing behavior. This includes the loss of right to attend or participate in the HFMA event, including forfeiting any registration fees paid.
