TPS Draft Proposal – Social Media and Advertising Policy – Member Comment

Members,

The TPS has recently started using Social Media sites; such as Facebook. To that end, the committee would like to develop an inclusive policy, that meets the needs of the society, the users of our Facebook presence and visitors to the same. Social Media is a gateway to how we present ourselves. Even if an adverse comment or argument or these media sites, may seem trivial, it may put off people wanting to become involved with us. This is why your committee has worked toward this policy’s implementation.

If you’re coming along to tonight’s meeting or the next competition night, there will be hard copies of a draft proposal TPS Social Media Policy, to which we would welcome comments. Alternately, click the link in the last sentence to read it.

Once this process is complete, it will become part of the rules we will all follow.

Comments to the Secretary’s email: tpssec@hotmail.com.au

Thank you.
