Speaker Agreement with Cooperative Impact

Social Media Policy and Conference Policy

This agreement is by and between Cooperative Impact Social Innovation Conference (EVENT) and the individual presenters (SPEAKER) who are scheduled to speak at the conference on Thursday, September 24th.

I. Social Media Policy

  1. EVENT will provide SPEAKER with a pre-approved list of marketing assets, strategies and tactics, quote lists to tweet, graphics to share, and organizations SPEAKER is permitted to contact. If SPEAKER uses any other language to associate themselves with EVENT in a public fashion on any social media platform such as posting an uninvited, unapproved, and therefore unlawful and obtrusive status update on said organization’s public profile, and this posting contains questionable verbiage that may jeopardize the reputation of EVENT and all of our employees, the SPEAKER will be immediately removed from all future EVENTS and proceedings with potential legal action to follow.
  2. Transparency, honesty, dignity and identity. If you engage in conversation about EVENT on any social media platform you must always identify yourself with your legal name and what specifically your involvement with EVENT consists of. If you try to “plant” statements that appear to be from an objective outsider when they are really made by the SPEAKER you must know this is an immediate violation of social media etiquette, it is also a violation of the integrity we expect throughout our organizations – our partners also hold us to these high standards as we do of them. If this happens SPEAKER should expect next steps to involve immediate removal from the EVENT with an unfortunately obvious loss of trust. EVENT wants you to understand how powerful a simple tweet can be in causing one of EVENT’s partner organizations to cut us off from working together.
  3. Be the first to respond to your own mistakes. Once an issue is brought to your attention politely thank them and swiftly handle the situation, and move on. If you edit or modify a mistake you previous made, make it clear to others that you acknowledge the error and you’ve taken precautions to ensure it does not happen again.
  4. SPEAKER must make it clear that you are speaking for yourself and do not officially represent Cooperative Impact or the holding company, Princeton-based nonprofit Action Horizon Institute. Use a disclaimer like this to make it clear: “The postings found on my account are of my own, and don’t necessarily represent the strategies or opinions of Cooperative Impact.”
  5. Be aware of legal liabilities before you spam information onto other organization’s social media profiles without first thinking critically about what the negative impact something like that would have on SPEAKER and worse than that, EVENT.
  6. Exercise caution, judgment and integrity with regard to exaggeration, colorful language, use of copyrighted materials, unsupported assertions, and derogatory remarks or characterizations. If you are unsure about whether a posting may carry risks of personal legal liability for yourself, you may want to consult with your own legal advisor.

II. Conference Policy
