Code of Conduct

The Christian Comic Arts Society and The Redeemer Church of La Mirada, California expect respectful and courteous behavior from all attendees. Please be considerate of the Guests of Honor, volunteer staff, and your fellow attendees.  Everyone must comply with all Federal, State, and Local laws, ordinances and regulations at all times.

The Alpha Omega Christian Con is a Christian themed/ faith based/ family friendly event. Please keep this in mind and behave appropriately.

Attendee Conduct with Special Guests
Please remember that the guests of the AO Con are people that have taken time out of their busy schedules to attend this event. We ask that you respect their personal space. When guests are engaged in activities or conversations, please be courteous and wait your turn. If guests are taking a break between panels or events or if you encounter guests immediately outside of convention premises, please refrain from imposing yourself.

Guests and convention staff will let you know when they are available during the event. Because they are normal people, CCAS and Redeemer Church guests need time to eat, sleep, and wind down and we therefore require all attendees of the AO Con to adhere to the right to privacy for all VIP guests both on and off the grounds.

Harassment Policy
Because we want to create a safe environment for all types of fandom, the CCAS and Redeemer Church will not tolerate harassment of or by convention participants in any form. Any violation of this rule will result in immediate eviction from the convention with no refund. “No” means “no.” “Stop” means “stop.” “Go away” means “go away.”

Harassment is any behavior that seriously annoys or alarms another person. This includes unwanted physical contact, following someone in a public area, verbal assaults, or threatening physical violence. An offender may lose their badge and the matter may be referred to the proper law enforcement authorities. If you are being harassed, immediately contact a nearby member of the convention staff.

The convention staff have the right to remove an attendee’s badge for not following these rules and their commands, whether there have been prior offenses or not, and may eject a person from the convention.

Photography and Videography
Photographs and video are allowed in all common areas of the convention unless otherwise specified.

Photography or videography of the AO Con events, staff, or attendees for the purpose of sale, or publication to the press is expressly forbidden unless written permission has been obtained from the CCAS in accordance with its press policy. Individuals may take pictures and videos for private viewing.

Drug and Alcohol Policy
No drugs or alcohol are allowed in the convention or on the convention property. The CCAS and Redeemer Church will not tolerate public intoxication. Failure to comply with this policy may result in your immediate expulsion from the convention.

Buying, Selling, and Solicitation
The AO Con will have a vendor/exhibitor/dealer hall.  All sales and anyone who receives payment for goods in the convention space must comply with the convention’s vendor/exhibitor rules regardless of location.  Other restrictions may apply. Please see our exhibitor registration page if you wish to become a vendor/exhibitor.

Any solicitation, whether verbally or using signage, for monetary payment or exchange of services at the convention that does not comply with these restrictions may result in the offender losing their badge, the requirement to return all payments, and expulsion from the convention area.

Some examples of solicitation or sale that are prohibited are musicians requesting tips, setting up artwork for sale on the property outside the Redeemer Church and Community Foursquare Church of La Mirada, and passing out signs or cards to people soliciting their business in areas other then the aforementioned commerce areas i.e. the convention hall. Please also note that certain solicitations are ILLEGAL and will result in membership badge forfeiture, and possible referral to the proper law enforcement authorities.
