Section 2. Social Media Directive

The Clark County Fish & Game Club, Inc. (referred herein as Club), respects the right of any shareholder to maintain a blog or website or to participate in social networking on or through websites or services such as Twitter, Facebook, or similar sites/services (collectively “social media”). However, to protect the Clubs interests and because shareholders individually may not necessarily share the views of the Club as a whole, Shareholders must adhere to the following rules:

a. When using social media, if a shareholder mentions the Club and also expresses either a political opinion or an opinion regarding the Club’s actions, the poster must specifically state that the opinion expressed is his/her personal opinion and not the Club’s position. This is necessary to preserve the Club’s goodwill.

b. Be respectful of potential readers and colleagues. Do not use discriminatory comments, or make maliciously false statements when commenting about the Club, shareholders, and/or members of the Board of Directors and/or the Board of Directors as a whole.

c. Shareholders may not use the Club’s logos or titles that express, imply or could be construed as a Club post.

d. Shareholders shall not maintain any social media site that could be construed, expressed or implied as the Club’s official social media site.

e. Any conduct which is impermissible under the law if expressed in any other form or forum is impermissible if expressed through social media. For example, posted material that is discriminatory, obscene, defamatory, libelous, threatening or implicating the Club of wrongdoing is forbidden.

The Club encourages all shareholders to keep in mind the speed and manner in which information posted through social media can be relayed (and often misunderstood) by readers. Shareholders must use their best judgment. Shareholders with any questions should review the aforementioned guidelines. When in doubt, do not post!

Failure to follow these guidelines shall result in discipline, up to and including suspension and or expulsion from the Club by majority vote of the Board of Directors. In enforcing this policy, the Club reserves the right to monitor social media activities of shareholders, to the extent permitted by and in accordance with applicable laws.
