A Note on Photography at the Conference

Please note that photographers will be present throughout the conference. The FGLI Consortium may use these photographs for purposes of education, publicity, and outreach via the internet, print publications, and other media sources. In addition, the keynote address on Sunday evening (with the exception of the question and answer period) will be recorded and livestreamed. If you do not want your image used for such purposes, please submit a request to the FGLI Consortium at admin@fgliconsortium.org. Individuals who submit a completed Photo Opt-Out Form are also responsible for removing themselves from areas in which photography and/or recording is taking place, or notifying the camera operator of their opt-out status. Failure to do so may result in that individual's inclusion in a photograph or recording and will be treated as consent for the university to utilize that photograph or recording accordingly.
