Rough Draft of a Nonprofit Social Media Policy

During last week’s webinar on Creating a Social Media Policy for Your Nonprofit, we used the Policy Tool for Social Media to create a rough draft of a policy. The online interview in the tool includes 12 questions, and I asked the 30 or so webinar participants to pick the answers via GoToWebinar polling.

What resulted is a crowd-sourced rough draft of a nonprofit social media policy (link to a Word doc for you to download). I recommended that everyone start with this and then customize it for their own organizations, using some of the alternative language offered in Social Media, Risk, and Policies for Associations by Social Fish and Croydon Consulting.  I also shared links to lots of other advice and samples policies to make this rough draft your own.

If you missed the webinar, but would appreciate a little help walking through your options (including what I recommend you do on several vexing questions), the recording of the webinar is available right now in our archive. You’ll need an All-Access Pass to check it out, which is $145. Here’s what else you get with the Pass.

Thanks to everyone for participating in the polling that created the policy! Here’s what a few of the participants said about the webinar:

“Very informative with concrete examples of how other non-profits are handling and creating policy that works specifically for their organizations. The take-away is ‘one size does not fit all.’ As always, great information presented with a sense of humor and down to earth style. The existing policy examples were very helpful.” ~ Kaylynn Dougall, Mental Health Center of Denver

“Social media policy: Should you police, plead, placate or propose? This is so timely for me. Our staff is discussing social media policy right now. I can’t wait to see our composite social media policy. What a great idea!” ~ Sheri Holm, West Central Initiative

“This webinar helps you figure out how to start the conversation on social media policy for your nonprofit.” ~ Melissa Fose, Volunteers of America, Dakotas

    Whilst on Paxos, make sure that you take the opportunity to travel to the Erimitis cliffs and watch the sun go down from the comfort of the Erimitis Sunset Bar. It’s an open air restaurant and you can enjoy a lovely Greek meal whilst watching the setting sun leave a track across the dark blue sea.
