Resolution Retraction

Greetings fellow Kin,

The discussion that has come forth regarding the social media resolution
has been very thought-provoking.

We have decided to withdraw the resolution for this year. While we still
feel that it is a topic that needs to be addressed, clearly, it will be better to
have this discussion when we are all able to meet again. We are able to
share thoughts and opinions online via text or video conference,
however, it just isn’t the same as sitting down together. Any changes to
our District house rules are important enough that we now realize we are
better off to wait so they can go through our regular, in-person
procedures.

It is great to see, even after the way the past year has gone, that we are
all still so passionate about this great Association. Stay strong, fellow
Kin!

Yours in Kin,
Vice Governors Dave & Chrissy Heimpel

Resolution for Spring Convention

Resolution for District 1

Whereas the current closed District 1 Kin Facebook group is sometimes used to discuss issues internal to Kin, and

Whereas the group should be a safe place for members to share their thoughts and opinions on the subjects of the day, and

Whereas former members do not need to be privy to issues that should remain private to active members of the Association, and

Whereas District 1 does not currently have a place on Facebook that allows us to publicly celebrate and share the success stories of clubs, and

Whereas there are currently no formal guidelines for social media use on behalf of District 1 which means each District team can use or not use platforms as they wish,

Whereas other Districts have successfully implemented a private closed Facebook group for members only, and a public Facebook page for anyone to follow, and

Whereas more and more business is being required to be conducted virtually, development and implementation of policies surrounding guidelines and expectations of both participants and administrators are prudent.

Therefore Be it resolved that the following article be added to the District 1 House Rules:

ARTICLE 27 – Social Media

1. The District 1 Kin closed Facebook group shall be restricted to active members of District 1 Kin Canada only. The criteria used will be that they are listed as active members of District 1 on the National Roster.

2. This group will be updated at least once per year between November 30th and December 31st by the District 1 Communication Director or their designate and the Governors of the day.

3. The District 1 Kin public Facebook page will be available for all Kin members, family and supporters to follow. Posts to be moderated by the District 1 Kin Communications Director or their designate and the Governors of the day.

4. The District 1 Kin Twitter handle (for tagging purposes) is: @District1Kin

5. Official District 1 Kin hashtag is #d1Kin. Clubs are encouraged to also use club & national hashtags as well for brand recognition.

6. Any social media post deemed a risk management concern by the Communications Director and the Governors of the day (for example, discrediting the reputation of a member, club, project, or the Association in general) will be removed, and the person posting will be contacted and may be suspended from accessing the social media platform in question.

Intent: To have clear guidelines and expectations set out as policy for social media use in the name of District 1 Kin.

Note: Facebook supports 2 different platforms, a group or a page. A group can have restricted membership and things posted there are for the approved members only. A page can be accessed by anyone and is intended to allow sharing of public information and to celebrate and share the success stories of clubs and their activities. The removal of non-Kin members in the group will not happen until at least 3 months after Spring Convention 2021.

2016-17

Welcome back to another Kin year!

I’m your District Secretary this year and am really looking forward to working with the Back to the Future Part Deux team!

You will normally find me taking minutes at the various District Council meetings and conventions, or busily gathering items and stuffing envelopes for the District mailings.

I’ve spent many years in Kin and have held many positions at both the district and national level, so I’m hoping to use my knowledge and skillset to help out wherever I can and be a mentor to our strong team of Deputy Governors as well as our Vice-Governor’s team.

If I can answer any questions, or assist your club in any way, feel free to reach out. Wishing you all well for a strong and successful year!




Thank you to our sponsors!
