When Was The Last Time You Updated Your Website Policy?

Rules and regulations surrounding internet use are anything but consistent. Take website policies for example. Does your organization have the exact same polices in place now you crafted three years ago? If so, you’re going to want to update those because they are so very out of date.

Adaptistration People 014Privacy regulations alone are continuously fluctuating. Case in point, the Republican controlled congress is set to repeal a slew of online privacy protections.

The 3/28/2017 edition of the Washington Post published an article by Brian Fung that reports on legislation that will make it easier for internet service providers to harvest, sell, and share your information.

There’s no shame in feeling like the last thing you want to deal with is creating a slew of new legal documents. Fortunately, figuring out what you need and getting it done is probably easier than you think.

To that end, I published an article today at ArtsHacker.com that examines which website policies arts organizations need, why they matter, and online resources to use for creating them if you don’t have readily available legal help.


About Drew McManus

"I hear that every time you show up to work with an orchestra, people get fired." Those were the first words out of an executive's mouth after her board chair introduced us. That executive is now a dear colleague and friend but the day that consulting contract began with her orchestra, she was convinced I was a hatchet-man brought in by the board to clean house.

I understand where the trepidation comes from as a great deal of my consulting and technology provider work for arts organizations involves due diligence, separating fact from fiction, interpreting spin, as well as performance review and oversight. So yes, sometimes that work results in one or two individuals "aggressively embracing career change" but far more often than not, it reinforces and clarifies exactly what works and why.

In short, it doesn't matter if you know where all the bodies are buried if you can't keep your own clients out of the ground, and I'm fortunate enough to say that for more than 15 years, I've done exactly that for groups of all budget size from Qatar to Kathmandu.

For fun, I write a daily blog about the orchestra business, provide a platform for arts insiders to speak their mind, keep track of what people in this business get paid, help write a satirical cartoon about orchestra life, hack the arts, and love a good coffee drink.
