About the LASFS Code of Conduct PDF Print E-mail


The Los Angeles Science Fantasy Society (LASFS) is a FAMILY FRIENDLY Location.  The Code of Conduct is designed to help keep it that way.

LASFS Members and their guests are unique, valuable, and deserve respect.  Moreover, we do not like losing them. To that end, your fellow club members ask that you show respect for yourself by:  taking care of yourself physically: bathing, wearing clean clothes, using deodorant, taking prescribed medications, resting, controlling your diet, exercising appropriately, not attempting to exceed your physical  capabilities or limitations, and generally valuing yourself the way we value you. This meas no putting yourself down, either!


LASFS Members also value their fellow members and guests. They do not demean or harass one another but treat each other as valued. They are courteous and respectful, allowing everyone who wants to participate, volunteer, or lead, an opportunity to do so.  They refrain from the self-indulgence that makes themselves martyrs and actively seek the help and participation of others, allowing others a chance to take on jobs rather than grabbing everything and complaining about the load they carry. They do not plot against others or undermine them behind their backs.  They receive credit for their contributions gracefully, and gracefully acknowledge the contributions of others.   They realize that their own behavior may give offense and so they take responsibility for watching their grooming, behavior, smoking, language, and they refrain from harassing anyone( sexually or otherwise).


LASFS Members are heirs to 75 years of fandom, history, and resources.  Our clubhouse, like LASFS and its members, is valuable and unique.  Feel free to enjoy your snacks or food here, but remember after eating or going to the bathroom to wash your hands with soap and water.  Pick up your own mess. That includes washing, drying, and putting away dishes and serving pieces that are used for setting out or preparing food. Do not abuse the furniture, computers, displays, machines, or any part of the club. Do not exploit or use LASFS property or resources (like electricity) that the club pays for. Turn off lights, computers, etc. Do not mess with the thermostat. If you need something, please ask an officer.  There is a right way to ask to borrow items belonging to the club—from the Board of Directors—and a small donation is always appreciated. Remember, we are stewards for the next generation of fans.



Respect Yourself, Others, and the Property of LASFS. Treat Them Respectfully While On the Premises.

LASFS Members enjoy being enthusiastic fans. Our mission is to bring the joy of fandom to all. Please join us in creating an atmosphere that welcomes new people and promotes a sense of community by adhering to our code of conduct.  Violations of the code of conduct will be dealt with individually as the Board of Directors deems appropriate.
