Wis­con­sin ASCD does not dis­crim­i­nate in its mem­ber­ship accord­ing to age, race, color, ances­try, gen­der, sex­ual ori­en­ta­tion, gen­der iden­tity, mar­i­tal sta­tus, reli­gion, creed, national or eth­nic ori­gin, polit­i­cal beliefs or affil­i­a­tion, or disability. 

Code of Ethics

Wis­con­sin ASCD’s mis­sion can only be real­ized through a com­mon code of ethics upheld by the Board of Direc­tors.

Program Cancellations

WASCD reserves the right to can­cel or move any pro­gram with noti­fi­ca­tion to reg­is­tered par­tic­i­pants. In the event of a can­cel­la­tion all reg­is­trants will be noti­fied as soon as pos­si­ble and receive full refunds. 


Refunds will be issued for reg­is­tra­tion fees less a $25 pro­cess­ing fee.

Social Media

Face­book enables WASCD to cir­cu­late resources, engage mem­bers and share infor­ma­tion within the con­text of a glob­ally dis­trib­uted con­ver­sa­tion. With that in mind, it is impor­tant for guest con­trib­u­tors to under­stand what is rec­om­mended and expected.

Posts on the WASCD Face­book page may not be used to solicit com­mer­cial ven­tures, reli­gious or polit­i­cal causes, out­side orga­ni­za­tions, or other non-​WASCD related solic­i­ta­tions.

Political Activity Policy Statement

It is the pol­icy of Wis­con­sin ASCD to com­ply with IRS reg­u­la­tions that restrict its direct or indi­rect par­tic­i­pa­tion or inter­ven­tion in any polit­i­cal cam­paign activ­i­ties in sup­port of or oppo­si­tion to can­di­dates for elec­tive pub­lic office at any level. Lim­i­ta­tions and pro­hi­bi­tions include but are not lim­ited to the fol­low­ing:


Adver­tis­ing and spon­sor­ship from pro­pri­etary enti­ties will be accepted by WASCD for the pur­poses of adver­tis­ing and spon­sor­ship of pro­grams and pub­li­ca­tions, exclud­ing the High­lighter.

These pre­sen­ta­tions may be based on or include pro­pri­etary infor­ma­tion and prod­ucts. We value these busi­ness part­ners and thank them for their sup­port of the conference.
