These practices are being shared with POrtalBurn artists, and the community at large. Please feel free to contact the BOD at email@example.com if you have any questions or comments.

The Code of Conduct Committee has two important links that we wanted to share with you.
The first is the updated version of the POrtalBurn Code of Conduct and Conduct Committee Guidelines. These guidelines are meant to outline, in as transparent a way as possible, the off-site role that the volunteer members of the newly formed Code of Conduct will play in helping to mediate conflicts between members of our community that participants were not able to resolve themselves during the event.
The second is the POrtalBurn Incident Report Form. This is the form that participants should use to submit a Conduct Complaint directly to the Code of Conduct Committee.
If anyone has any questions, you can email POrtalBurnConduct@gmail.com.
Go HERE for the updated Guidelines and Incident Report Form.
Here it is! Everything you need to know about all the Happenings, Events, Logistics and Principles for POrtalBurn 2018. Please download the file to view or print your own. A limited supply will be available on site during the event.
