  • DMS member blacklist
  • None of these people are welcome at DMS
  • If any of these people are seen at DMS they are trespassing

About

Expectations

  1. Members that have been expelled or suspended are not allowed on DMS premises, online systems, or sponsored events
  2. Expelled or suspended members may only be allowed onsite when granted an explicit exception in writing by the Officer that suspended them or the Board of Directors - typically to attend a meeting regarding their expelled or suspended status - and must be escorted at all times when on the premises
  3. Any expelled or suspended member that appears onsite at DMS without an explicit exception and escort as noted in (2) is to be asked to leave immediately. Members may request the assistance of Officers, Board members, Committee Chairs, and other members if necessary. If the individual refuses to leave, members are authorized to call the police and report them for trespassing.
