SPECIAL COMMUNICATIONS POLICY REGARDING MEMBERSHIP EMAILS/SOCIAL MEDIA OUTLETS/WEBSITE CALENDAR/PUBLICATIONS/ADVERTISING/REPRINT AND REPRODUCTION OF CONTENT
In order to maintain our credibility and high readership of the San Antonio Bar Association (“we” or “us” or “our”) communications (i.e. social media outlets, calendar events, publications and membership emails), our policy generally prohibits promotion or publication of vendor-related products, political organizations, or political campaigns and will only publish pertinent messaging directly related to us, our affiliated organizations, or the legal profession. All references herein to “we,” “us,” or “our” are intended to include The San Antonio Bar Association and any other affiliated organizations. By accessing, creating or contributing to any communications, you agree to abide by these Terms as well as State Bar of Texas Rules regarding Advertising.

Your continued use of the Services constitutes your acceptance of all such Terms. If you do not agree with these Terms, please do not use the Services.
- Membership Emails
We send membership-wide emails regarding related sponsored or supported events and those of more general appeal to the legal community.
(a) To qualify for general appeal to the legal community, emails must not support the promotion of personal announcements (excluding the death of an attorney/community leader); political figures, elected officials, campaigns or parties; or fundraisers and must apply to one of these categories: courthouse-specific announcements, continuing legal education, and general legal community events (i.e. Constitution Day, portrait unveiling). Due to the numerous number of Affinity/Specialty Bars in the area, We cannot send routine event information to our membership through membership emails on behalf of Affinity/Specialty Bars.
(b) The same message may not appear in more than three membership emails within a six-month timeframe, with the exception of routine programming emails, and there should be no more than two membership emails a day unless an emergency arises. We take into consideration time-sensitive material and do our best to schedule accordingly; however, we cannot guarantee a pre-scheduled date or time of a membership email.
(c) Email blasts should be short and to the point (preferably no more than 50 words) and must contain contact information or a link to more information with contact information.
(d) Membership email requests should be sent to email@example.com with proposed text for the email and point of contact information for the related person/organization. Once the request is made, our representatives will provide an appropriate response. The San Antonio Bar Association’s Executive Director or President must approve unprecedented email topics or email content that deviates from these guidelines. This will be done through an internal process, and email requests should not be sent directly to the Executive Director or President of the Board.
(e) We may also send Section-wide emails at the request of our Section Chairs or Section board members. Section-wide emails are left to the discretion of the Communications Director. Usual email content relates to upcoming continuing legal education, meetings, or Section-specific updates.
- Social Media Outlets
We maintain accounts on social media sites including but not limited to Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn, Flickr, YouTube and Instagram.
(b) our policy prohibits the promotion of any vendor-focused or politically-driven post on our company page. We only endorse vendors if it is outlined and agreed upon with both parties in an advertising or sponsorship contract describing specific social media posting details. Sharing or reposting of a link to a products list exhibited in a blog-style (i.e. 10 Best Apps for Attorneys) is the only exception outside of a contract in which posting vendor-related materials is permissible.
(c) We can share and promote legal-related events or events hosted by local, statewide, or national-level bar associations, local law firms, partners or affiliated community organizations. Sharing relevant content in support of the San Antonio community is also permissible on social media.
(d) Curated content from other sources (blogs, links, etc.) is also permissible as long as it is relevant to our membership in some way (i.e. work-life balance, legal FAQs) and from a credible, reliable source.
(e) We encourage users to communicate with us through our website and cannot guarantee a response to users via social media, although we moderate our social media sites regularly.
- Website Calendar
Our website offers a Community Calendar, where submitted events may be posted. This Service is managed by the Communications Team.
(a) Approved postings may include but are not limited to events related to us and our affiliated organizations; local, statewide, and national bar associations; legal events; or pertinent community events.

You agree not to collect information about others, including e-mail addresses, or to use information obtained from the Services to send other users unsolicited e-mail of any kind. Publishing calendar events is a Service provided for informational purposes only; we shall not be responsible or liable for the accuracy or availability of any information appearing or available on the Calendar.
(c) Calendar postings/entries may provide links to other websites on the Internet. We are not responsible or liable for such content and we make no express or implied warranty about the accuracy, copyright compliance, legality, merchantability, or any other aspect of the content of such postings. We are not responsible or liable for any advertising, products, or other materials on or available from such websites or resources. The inclusion of links does not imply endorsement of the Websites by us or any association with their operators.
We publish two regular publications: The Subpoena Newsletter and The San Antonio Lawyer Magazine.
(a) We reserve the right to approve or reject for any reason content submissions for the Subpoena and San Antonio Lawyer. All approved content is subject to editing that may include but is not limited to editing for style, grammar, and length. Published content does not necessarily reflect the opinion of the Publisher or its authorized representatives, and we reserve the right to include a disclaimer expressing that fact.
(b) Newsletter and magazine submissions should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Advertising Guidelines
our publications and website have space for purchased and non-purchased advertising. While purchased publications and website advertising may be managed by a third-party vendor, non-purchased advertising should be managed by the Communications Team.
(a) Purchased advertising shall not reflect political parties, campaigns, or fundraising efforts, with the one exception of an event inclusive of all party candidates with confirmed participation. Purchased advertising rates are set by the Communications Director and/or third-party vendor.
(b) Non-purchased advertising is advertising approved by the Communications Director for the promotion of legal-related events (CLE, legal conferences, etc.) at the request of related-legal organizations or bar associations. We cannot guarantee non-purchased advertising space and may reject non-purchased advertising requests for any reason.
(c) Sponsorship advertising, applicable to our sponsors, underwriters, or our utilized vendors, is restricted advertising that has been decided upon in a contractual or written agreement by both parties (the sponsor/partner and us). “Thank you to our seminar vendors” or “Provided by ______, a sponsor of the San Antonio Bar Association” are examples of sponsorship advertisements.
On occasion, sponsorship agreements may contain guaranteed space for an article or articles related to the legal industry in relation to the sponsor’s product or service. We maintain editorial control over these types of articles, which must be approved by the Communications Director. Article restrictions should be declared prior to the contractual agreement.
Other non-sponsor organizations may submit articles to be included in our publications, but we cannot guarantee placement. These submissions must abide by the same editorial and approval standards.
- Reprint and Reproduction of Content
(a) We may republish content in our publications with the written agreement of the original publisher. The reprinted article must denote details of its original publication of the article.
(b) Original content by us and our affiliated organizations published in any multimedia formats (articles/graphics) may be reprinted with the written agreement of the Communications Director.
