Social Media Guidance for Volunteers

This guidance is for our volunteers who may come across situations where they want to engage with social media on CIEEM’s behalf (e.g. to promote or defend CIEEM activity). Social media and online resources help us to connect with others, the media and the public. However, inappropriate use of social media by volunteers, although well-intentioned, could pose a risk to CIEEM’s confidential proprietary information, reputation, productivity and legal obligations.

These guidelines relate to social media activity in relation to CIEEM and/or where the individual has in some way identified themselves as a CIEEM volunteer. They should be read alongside our Social Media Advice Note for members and the Volunteer Code of Behaviour, both of which contain more detailed information.
