OSWGA PROMOTION, SOLICITATION AND DISTRIBUTION POLICY

We recognize that soliciting support for and/or distributing literature on behalf of various causes or organizations, especially those of a non-profit, charitable nature, can be a benefit not only to our members, but also to the game of golf and the communities in which we operate. It is important, however, to set limits on and guidelines around such activities in order to minimize disruption to our tournaments and to respect our member’s rights not to receive what might be perceived as unwelcome distributions and solicitations. The purpose of this policy is to set forth appropriate guidelines for solicitation and distribution for events, charities or other activities. If there is any question about how these guidelines should be applied to a particular situation that is not addressed, members and outside agencies should contact a then serving OSWGA Board member.

Any event, charity or other activity that is NOT directly or indirectly related to the game of golf will not be endorsed by OSWGA, and will not receive permission to post or distribute material information to our members while at official OSWGA events. In addition, they shall not have access to our member’s list in any form including email or our website.

Any event, charity or other activity that IS directly or indirectly related to the game of golf may, at its discretion, be endorsed by the OSWGA, and may receive permission to post or distribute material information to our members while at official OSWGA events. Permission to disseminate information shall not be deemed an official endorsement by the OSWGA unless specifically so stated. In no case will the member’s list ever be provided directly to any individual, whether or not a member, nor any outside agency, rather the OSWGA board may authorize internal distribution or postings.

All promotions, solicitation or distribution material must first be approved by the OSWGA Board. Failure to receive prior permission and/or approval will result in immediate removal of any non-approved material.
