Failure to comply with this requirement as determined by TEXSOM organizers and staff will result in revocation of conference privileges, and no refund will be issued.
Expectation of Professionalism
TEXSOM is expected to be vigilant in enforcing all relevant laws relating to the sales, service, marketing, and promotion of alcohol. If you are visibly intoxicated at any official conference event, we may ask you to leave the event. Conduct that is serious, dangerous, or habitual may result in revocation of all conference privileges. If you are ejected from any event or the conference, no refund will be issued.
TEXSOM works in conjunction with Four Seasons Resort and Club to abide by the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Code and other state laws. While these regulations allow outside alcoholic beverages to be present in guest hotel rooms, they expressly prohibit outside alcoholic beverages from being brought into public areas other than those designated as official TEXSOM conference meeting spaces. TEXSOM suggests that all personal items be transported from vehicles to guest hotel rooms in luggage or other generic packaging.
UNLESS EXPRESSLY PERMITTED BY TEXSOM, NO OUTSIDE ALCOHOL WILL BE ALLOWED IN THE DESIGNATED TEXSOM CONFERENCE AREAS. ANY UNAUTHORIZED ALCOHOL PRODUCTS BROUGHT INTO THE CONFERENCE WILL BE CONFISCATED.
We expect everyone to treat others at the TEXSOM conference with courtesy and respect. If you participate in harassing behavior toward a volunteer, participant, sponsor, or anyone with whom you come in contact while attending the TEXSOM conference, we will revoke your conference privileges.
We do not tolerate harassment of our volunteers, participants, or sponsors. Whether verbal, physical, or sexual in nature, if you feel you are being harassed in any way by a volunteer, participant, sponsor, or anyone with whom you come in contact while at the TEXSOM conference, please inform TEXSOM staff immediately. We take harassment seriously and are committed to taking immediate action to remove anyone who engages in such behavior.
