Code of Conduct

Code of Conduct Orators Society’s core values are integrity, respect, service and excellence. These are values worthy of a great organization, and Orators Society believe Orators Society should incorporate them as anchor points in every decision Orators Society makes. Our core values provide us with a means of not only guiding but also evaluating our operations, our planning, and our vision for the future. The following are Rules of Conduct that apply to any form of communication on this website and all Orators Society online social media platforms:

1. Maintain Professional Decorum & Integrity

  1. The Orators Society Code of Ethics and Conduct applies to social media participation, including standards for communications.
  2. As a member of Orators Society, it is important that all users conduct themselves in a professional manner at all times in accordance with the core values. This includes the use of social media. Accordingly, it is important that Orators Society members, Orators Society staff, and site visitors be treated with respect at all times. Never engage in personal attacks – threatening, insulting, or intimidating other users, as well as “flaming” (berating another user),“trolling” (posting derogatory, inflammatory, or provocative content attempting to bait others into responding). This includes any attacks against forum moderators, fellow Orators Society members or employees.
  3. Disagreements can and will occur. The proper focus of any conflict should be on the issue at hand and not on the individual. Please remember to be fair and courteous while disagreeing with others. Personal attacks against others, however, are not allowed.
  4. Never act dishonestly or unprofessionally by engaging in behaviour that is detrimental to the best interests of Orators Society by posting inappropriate, inaccurate or objectionable content.
  5. Do not, under any circumstance, harass, abuse, bully, or harm another person, including sending unwelcome communications to others.
  6. Never upload, post, email, transmit or otherwise make available or initiate any content that:
    1. Is unlawful, racist, sexist, homophobic, hateful, damaging, false, libellous, defamatory, malicious, vulgar, obscene, or discriminatory, contains religious or ethnic bias, or is otherwise objectionable. For example, never post anything meant to harm someone's personal or professional reputation or jokes based on race, sex, religion or disability.
    2. Includes information that invades another’s privacy or that you do not have the right to disclose or make available under any law or under contractual or fiduciary relationships.
    3. Includes any unsolicited or unauthorized advertising, promotional materials, “junk mail,” “spam,” “chain letters,” “pyramid schemes,” surveys, or any other form of solicitation. This includes any content soliciting customers, clients, donors, or others on behalf of your business, profession, or any organization or causes other than Orators Society.

    8. Transmits any harmful, invasive, or disruptive code or other materials (such as viruses, worms, or web bugs).
  7. Orators Society forums tend to involve many participants. Communications that contain criticism, complaints, accusations, allegations, etc., are more properly directed through personal conversations, phone calls, or emails through official channels established to address such problems, rather than broadcast via social media and forums. This is the better way to resolve differences while minimizing damage to the goodwill and social fabric of Orators Society.
  8. Orators Society is not responsible for the content of others. You are solely responsible for your content. You may not indicate that your content is anything other than your own observations or opinions.
