Ground Rules

The following ground rules provide a statement of how NAPPC Members should work together during annual conferences and ongoing task force activities. These ground rules have been reviewed and approved by the Steering Committee. We request that you carefully review these prior to participation in NAPPC.


The success of all collaborative activities depends upon open communication and cooperation. Therefore, the following guidelines apply to NAPPC member participation:

  • NAPPC is a forum to find common ground, creating positive progress towards the NAPPC Mission. Please disagree respectfully during discussions and recognize that not all perspectives will be the same. The goal is to focus on areas of shared interest and to table contentious sticking points.
  • Each person is asked to engage in discussions by sharing thoughts and actively listening to others. The Task Force Chair(s) will ensure that all participants who want to contribute to discussions are allowed the time to do so. Therefore, participants are requested not to dominate the discussions and lead the group off topic; if this occurs the Task Force Chair(s) will intervene to ensure all parties have a chance to speak and that discussions remain relevant.
  • Be empathetic and assume good intent from fellow NAPPC participants. Members should feel comfortable working collaboratively and openly. Please create common understanding by clarifying technical terms and acronyms.
  • The Steering Committee has identified certain subjects that have the potential to sidetrack progress. Due to the limited time we have together, genetically modified organisms and specimen collection versus observation will not be discussed during NAPPC meetings.
  • Any concerns about the conduct of the deliberations or the issues being discussed should be brought to the attention of the Task Force Chair(s) or the Steering Committee Members to ensure that the meetings are effective and positive.
