CAUCUS MEMBERS

MEMBER LISTS:

    • Do not retain lists of your caucus members for longer than one month.
    • Always make sure your list is password protected.
    • Do not store your spreadsheets on a public drive or public computer.
    • Caucus member lists do not include the email address of the members due to GDPR.
    • If you store your lists on a network drive (for example, DropBox, ICloud or Google Drive) make sure that access control to both the documents and the drive itself is strictly controlled.
      • In other words, please don't store your member list in the same Dropbox/Google Drive folder that you share with your spouse and kids as well as anyone on your local committee.


SHARING YOUR LISTS:

    • ALWAYS password protect the document, whether it is Word, Excel, or a PDF.
    • Never send the password together with the list
    • When sending passwords, we suggest using secret message services like  https://fugacio.us/ and https://onetimesecret.com/
    • ANYONE with access to members’ data (spreadsheet, paper list etc.) must have a confidentiality agreement on file. People who have submitted a form to global DA are tagged with “Confidentiality Signed” in the database.
    • Keep track of who you share spreadsheets with, even if they are lists on paper. Remind them that they are forbidden from using this information beyond DA Caucus purposes. When they no longer need the spreadsheet have them return the list to you and, if relevant, ask them to certify that they have deleted all copies of the data.



EMAILS:

Email Blasts/Mass Mailings

  • ALL email blasts (mass mailings) must be sent from Nation Builder.
    • This includes:  Monthly newsletters, event announcements, sub-group meeting announcements - ANYTHING that is not a response to an individual member question or email.
    • WHY:  This ensures that emails are only sent to current members, and not people who have changed their minds about membership - in DA, or your caucus.

Individual Emails

  • Reply to individual members from the official Global caucus email account, your official DA email account or the email account that you have set up for DA work.
  • In all replies and messages, clearly identify your DA role in your Sender name, also in your email signature, along with your DA forwarding address, if you have one.
  • If you receive replies from members in your own mailbox, delete the replies once they are no longer needed.



DELETION REQUESTS/EMAIL OPT-OUTS


These requests need to be acted on within 48 hours. 

  1. If a member asks to be deleted from the database or the caucus , forward this request to caucus-helpdesk@democratsabroad.org as soon as you receive it.
