Fall Conference 2019 Registration
Please read the BCYAYM Covenants before filling out the registration form below. By registering for Fall Conference you are agreeing to abide by the BCYAYM Community Covenants while attending Fall Conference.
BCYAYM COMMUNITY COVENANTS
CONDUCT WILL BE GOVERNED WITH COMPASSION, TRUST, AND RESPECT FOR ALL.
BCYAYM fosters a community of friendship, respect, and concern for others. We strive to create a safe space for everyone, with awareness and regard for our diverse contexts. We welcome everyone’s multi-faceted beliefs while participating in the Christian beliefs of our Anglican tradition.
Positive relationships and community require positive boundaries that make everyone feel safe, welcome, and accepted. These covenants aim to establish those boundaries so that everyone will have a fantastic experience with BCYAYM.
Be inclusive of others. Whether your friendships are new or old, be welcoming to everyone and open to forming new friendships. Support diversity and be respectful of all people, regardless of gender, sexuality, ability, race, culture, or background.
Be present and on site for all aspects of BCYAYM events. Leaders work hard to create events that are engaging, relevant, and interesting. They are also responsible for the safety of everyone. Our leaders recognize that sometimes you might not be able to participate in a particular activity. Please approach them if you have any concerns and they will be happy to make arrangements for you.
Do not enter anyone else’s sleeping area or touch their property without permission. In order to create a safe space for everyone, we all need to respect the space of others, their property, and their personal boundaries.
BCYAYM values the formation of strong, long-lasting, and significant relationships, however explicit sexual activity takes people away from the larger community and detracts from BCYAYM’s goal of inclusivity. Therefore refrain from sexual activity while attending a BCYAYM event.
Abstain from the consumption of alcohol or illicit drugs. BCYAYM recognizes that everyone comes from different backgrounds, contexts, and places in their lives. Removing these substances from our events helps ensure that everyone feels safe.
If you smoke tobacco or have medications, please contact our leaders so that they may make arrangements with you.
Anyone who breaks the community covenants will be addressed by our leadership and dealt with on a case-by-case basis. Consequences will be appropriate but may result in the participant being sent home at their expense.
Please fill out the registration form, then mail your registration fee via cheque to BCYAYM (see mailing address at bottom of page).
