President’s Charity

CVSA President Julius Debuschewitz selected the Yukon Hospital Foundation as the recipient of funds raised from the conference auction. Funds will be used to help enhance the quality of health care Yukoners receive at area hospitals. We ask that you bring items for auction to the conference. Donations for the auction can include items such as attire, bags, mugs, patches, miniature truck or bus replicas, etc. Attendees will have the opportunity to purchase raffle tickets to win the items donated by our members. All proceeds from the raffle will be donated to the Yukon Hospital Foundation. Cash donations would also be appreciated.

Media Policy

Fostering an open relationship with the media by providing a free flow of public information is vital to CVSA’s success; therefore, the Alliance allows members of the media to attend its meetings and conferences. Media will be identified with a black “Press” ribbon on their name badge. CVSA asserts a strong standing policy of non-attribution of discussion points from meetings and conferences. Members of the press understand that no individual may be quoted by name, rank, jurisdiction or title concerning comments he or she made during a meeting. If any member of the press wants to use or obtain a quote, he or she may only do so with written permission of that individual and the Alliance. CVSA’s conferences and meetings are opportunities for CVSA members and industry stakeholders to discuss topics and issues, and share ideas and perspectives. We encourage our members to speak freely at meetings and conferences without concern of print or online attribution.

Consent to Use of Photographic Images

Registration and attendance at and participation in CVSA meetings and other activities constitutes an agreement by the registrant to CVSA’s use and distribution of the registrant’s or attendee’s image or voice in photographs, videotapes, electronic reproductions, and audiotapes of such events and activities.
