THIRD-PARTY CONTENT DISCLAIMER


Career Transitions is not responsible the accuracy of posted third-party hyperlinks or content. As we are a nonprofit organization, there may be occurrences when the third-party content will become outdated.


MEMBER LIST


Use: Our list is used only for communicating CT events to CT members/people that have registered online or in person with their email. It is our intent to not exceed 2-3 e-mailings per month and send outgoing emails about Career Transitions meetings as "BCC's so as not to expose email addresses. The list will not used to promote other events. Please understand that we get many requests to promote other organizations' events. Even if they may benefit our attendees, we will not use or share our email list to do so, as there are simply too many events and our members have not authorized us to contact them about events beyond those presented by Career Transitions. Our goal is to have a place for listing other events on the Resources page of our web site where we can offer links to resources and other events. Until that functionality is realized, attendees are encouraged to announce other learning or networking events/opportunities at the end of each meeting.


We will offer an opt-in and opt-out method, which is currently a manual system. Reply or send email to mycareertransitions@gmail.com, with "Opt-in" or "Opt-out" in subject line. The Career Transitions Communication Manager will make updates to our list monthly. Please understand that all Career Transitions positions, including responsibility for this task, are done by volunteers, and allow time for the change to happen.


CRITERIA FOR SPEAKERS


Career Transitions leaders (at minimum the Leader and co-leader in charge of speakers) must approve all speakers/subjects to be presented and will do their best to provide a well-rounded slate of programs for our members without cost. Speakers' credentials must show an expertise on the subject. Speaker cannot use the event to directly solicit business from members. However, we realize that many of the speakers available to speak on subjects of interest to our members will likely have business interests where they may also gain from the exposure of speaking at our meetings. This is acceptable if it is not abused. Speakers will not be given member or attendee lists, but they may pass around an opt-in sheet of their own for members to receive further information or to join their mailing list. Any reference to the speaker's paid services should be kept to a minimum and be mentioned only in passing or via handouts, their opt-in list, their name and contact information posted at the beginning and end of their presentation. Speakers cannot use the Career Transitions name to market subsequent offerings. We make no endorsement of the information presented by the speaker at the event or in any subsequent communication. To submit a request to speak, please send an email with this form completed to mycareertransitions@gmail.com


CRITERIA TO BE LISTED AS A RESOURCE ON THE WEB SITE:

Career Transitions leaders (at minimum 2 co-leaders) must approve requests for inclusion in our resources section of the web site. To submit a request, send an email with the URL (link) and brief explanation of why it is relevant to our members, to mycareertransitions@gmail.com Similarly to our speaker guidelines, the web site to be linked must show an expertise on the subject. The link must provide significant relative information for our members without cost. However, we realize that many of th-e web resources available will likely have business interests where they may also gain from the exposure. This is acceptable as long as there is enough free content that we deem it useful for members. A separate section for Fee- Based Resources may be added later and would also be subject to approval by at least 2 leaders. By providing these links as a convenience, Career Transitions is simply providing a dashboard of links to resources that are available to anyone but may be overwhelming for the person in transition to find. We make no endorsement of the information or services provided on these links.
