From the Bouchercon Board, May 21, 2018:
For some years now, Bouchercon has been working toward having a statement or policy regarding attendee (member) behavior at Bouchercon events as it relates to sexual harassment and inclusion. Because Bouchercon is an all-volunteer organization, we have some unique circumstances around this, and we therefore need legal advice/guidance to complete this process. We are currently getting this assistance, and depending on the advice we receive, we expect to have something in place at Bouchercon 2018 in St. Petersburg.
We always welcome input and participation from Bouchercon members. The next General Members Meeting will be on Friday, September 7 at 2:00 pm. All Bouchercon members are welcome and encouraged to attend. If you have questions about this prior to the meeting, you can contact the Bouchercon board through the contact form on this website.
