    If any member or guest persists in unwanted sexual harassment, then they will be removed from the situation and meet privately with board members who will re-clarify this policy per the additional Sexual Harassment Administrative Clarification Policy to ensure compliance. Further digressions from the code of conduct will be handled at the discretion of the Board to make the final decision.

    This policy mirrors the same policies as all other organizations consistent with Title VII provisions outlined in the Civil Rights Act of 1991 and Colorado Revised Statutes. This policy and much of the language used also mirrors and is consistent with same policies from:
