Southwestern Officials Association Social Media Guidelines

SOA Social Media Code of Conduct


Negative comments, images, criticism and sexist remarks (although not limited to just these items) not only impact the target person or group, but also has a reflection on the individual posting/sending and as well the Southwestern Officials Association (SOA). Therefore, any confirmed communication detrimental to the SOA or any member thereof, will be subject to disciplinary action resulting in a fine and/or suspension as outlined within the By-Laws of the SOA (Article II, Section 3) determined by the Board of Directors of the SOA, upon the recommendation from the Regional Supervisor. The punishment of such act or offense is final with no appeal, and thus shall be considered a non-grievance action or issue.
