ASIS International has adopted a position on professional conduct at chapter meetings for members who supply goods or services:
As an organization of professional security practitioners, it is desirable that chapter meetings be held in an atmosphere free of uninvited commercial distractions. ASIS endorses a policy that prohibits members who provide and sell security or consulting services from initiating a sales effort immediately before, during, or after a chapter meeting while at the meeting location.
Adherence to this policy will result in maintaining an atmosphere in which members are able to discuss matters affecting their profession without being the object of a sales presentation. This policy does not prohibit an organized program wherein a service company may present the program from that day, nor does it prevent a member in the service industry from responding to an inquiry.
