CBA policy for use of Public Display Spaces (4/2013)
Public display spaces for the Cincinnati bridge
Association are defined (for now) as the following:
- Bulletin boards, walls and display boards at the
bridge center itself. - The website: cincybridge.com. - The clubs mailing list in both traditional and
The policy of the CBA board is to limit the use of all of
these spaces to information directly related to bridge. Personal stories and
Items indirectly related to bridge may also be posted if, in the opinion of the
CBC Coordinator or CBA Webmaster, they both promote the game of bridge and do
not contain subjects that are controversial.
While we recognize and often take justifiable pride in
the accomplishments and participation of our members in other events and
organizations, we feel that CBA’s public spaces are not the correct venue for
such recognition. We further anticipate
that if there were exceptions to this policy, it would require a significant
commitment of volunteer time to decide which items are appropriate and would
almost certainly result in hurt feelings.
Serious illness and/or the death of a member of the unit
are the sole exception to this policy. We feel that this information is of such
value to the rest of the membership that should be publicized.
Although “in memoriam” notices on the website are limited
to members, upon specific request the sudden and unexpected demise of a close
relative of a member may also be publicized at the discretion of the webmaster.
