Media Guidelines

All Langley Minor Lacrosse Association Members shall abide by the following guidelines when using social media:

  1. Be positive and respectful, and always take the high road. When disagreeing with others’ opinions, remain appropriate and polite. If you find yourself in a situation online that is becoming antagonistic, ask the LMLA Board of Directors for advice on how to disengage from the dialogue in a polite and respectful manner that reflects well on LMLA.
  2. Do not post content that would harm LMLA or damage LMLA’s reputation. Remember that even while you are on your own personal time, you are a representative of LMLA, and people may interpret your online postings or social interactions as though they were official LMLA statements.
  3. Use good judgment when posting comments on any official LMLA sites. Bear in mind that your comments can create liability for LMLA. If you are unsure whether a comment is appropriate to post, either do not post it or obtain prior approval from the Board of Directors.
  4. Be smart about what you publish. Once something is posted, it exists online forever. Ask yourself, “would I want to see this published in the newspaper or posted on a billboard tomorrow or ten years from now?” If the answer is “no,” do not post.
  5. Encourage others to engage in positive interactions on social media. If you are concerned about any LMLA Member’s use of social media, please bring your concerns to the attention of a member of the LMLA Board of Directors.
  6. Personally, identifiable information (information, such as a name and date of birth and/or a street address which, when taken together, can identify a particular individual) should not be disclosed in any manner on official LMLA social networking sites without the approval of the LMLA Board of Directors.
