Social Media Policy

Social Media Policy for Members, Volunteers (including Staff)

The full Social Media Policy and use statement may be Downloaded from this link

CAYC uses social media in the delivery of the club operational aims with regard to boating and all Club related activities. This recognises that those who are involved in its work may also use social media either as part of their role or in their private lives. A written policy is therefore required for all volunteers, members, staff and stakeholders on the acceptable use of social networking in marketing and communication of club activities.

CAYC encourages the responsible use of social media. The purpose of this policy is to set out what the General Committee expects from within the Committee and from all of the volunteers when using social media. It is important to remember that we are all ambassadors for the Club and that social media is never private.

This policy is for members, volunteers, and staff and aims to:

  1. Provide a process as to who and how a Social Media Forum may be created under the Club Name;
  2. The basic requirements to enable the effective management of this Forum;
  3. Provide clear guidelines on what volunteers, staff and members can say about the organisation;
  4. Comply with relevant legislation and protect volunteers, staff and members;
  5. Help Flag Officers and those with Roles of responsibility who monitor and manage the Club Social Mediums to ensure the use by others in an effective manner;
  6. Help volunteers, staff and members draw a line between their private lives, their volunteering and activities within the Club;
  7. Protect CAYC against liability for the actions of volunteers or Members or Staff;
  8. Be clear about sensitive issues such as monitoring and explain how problems with inappropriate use will be addressed.
  9. The limitations with regard to age and the different mediums in use. (e.g. Facebook Age13, WhatsApp Age16)

In 2019 Membership adopted a Social Media Policy at the AGM and this is refreshed following an annual review.

A Training and Awareness session took place Friday 28 February 2019 @ 8:00pm in the Clubhouse
