Team Alameda Publicity Policy
In the interest of establishing a fair and uniform standard for the use of Team Alameda resources in connection with the promotion of various cycling events and other events in which TA members participate, the Board hereby adopts the following policy:
A. For events sponsored by Team Alameda, notices may be posted in all TA media (the homepage, forums, calendar and newsletter). In addition, the Board may allocate funding to support such events, as it deems appropriate.
B. For events for which a "TA Team" is organized to either participate in and/or support, notices may be posted in all TA media. Posting to the Team Alameda "Everything Else" Forum for individual fundraising by Team Alameda members for cycling related fundraising/charity events shall be permitted using TA media, however, the Board shall not allocate funding for such events.
C. For all other events, notices may be posted on the Ride Calendar and in the "Other Rides" Forum only.
D. TA members are encouraged to use the Forums and the Quarterly Newsletter to publicize their individual cycling adventures, travel and similar events.
In the interest of maintaining TA forums for the benefit of our members, to remain faithful to our non-profit mission and status, to avoid potential misuse or inundation of the forums with commercial matters, and to preserve the publicity benefit of TA sponsorship, the Board of Directors hereby formalizes longstanding policy:
No part of the Team Alameda website, including its discussion forums, shall be used for commercial advertising or solicitation.
The Board of Directors meetings are held at various locations in Alameda, CA which will be posted in the "Team Alameda Events" calendar linked from this website prior to holding the meeting. As a 501©3 Public Benefit Corporation, and based on our Corporate bylaws, any member of the public is allowed to attend.
