March 12, 2014 – Since the final regulations under the Anti-Spam Legislation came out, in December, many organizations have developed training materials and delivered webinars. Here are some of them that we are recommending.
- David Canton, at Harrison Pensa, designed a useful Spam Analysis Chart.
- The Ontario Nonprofit Network prepared a list of Top 10 things nonprofits need to know about anti-spam legislation.
- Imagine Canada delivered a very good webinar entitled Navigating Canada’s New Anti-Spam Laws for Charities and Nonprofit Organizations. The recording of this webinar is still available for viewing. It provides a clear overview of the legislations and suggests steps to take before the comes into force on July 1st.
More live training opportunies will be available in the coming months:
- Maytree is offering a presentation entitled Five Good Ideas about the New Canada Anti-Spam Law in Toronto on March 21. This presentation will also be available via live streaming.
- Pillar Nonprofit Network is presentating a webinar on the Canada’s Anti-Spam Legislation on April 4.
- The Ontario Nonprofit Network is providing an overview of the legislation and a compliance checklist in Is your nonprofit ready for Anti-spam legislation? on April 16.
- The Alliance for Arts and Culture is hosting SPAM I Am? A workshop on email best practices in advance of the Canadian Anti-Spam Legislation, in Vancouver on May 13.
- CAPACOA is still considering the possibility to host a webinar designed specifically for arts organizations. More information should become available soon.
While it remains uncertain whether or not the Anti-Spam Legislation will ever pose an actual threat to the arts sector in terms of fines, we believe these training sessions represent good opportunities for organizations to implement better practices around electronic communications.
