WLA reserves the right to investigate and take appropriate legal action against anyone who, in WLA’s sole discretion, violates this provision, including without limitation reporting you to law enforcement authorities. For these reasons, WLA has developed the following guidelines for appropriate and inappropriate activities (in question/answer format) in an effort to make the fine line between professional networking and solicitation clearer and easier to recognize:

Is it acceptable to follow up the receipt of a business card with a telephone call, mailing, email or by other means?

If the WLA members indicated that they wanted a follow up call, letter or email, then by all means, do so. If it was merely an exchange of business cards, the following guidelines apply:

A follow up telephone call would be appropriate only if specifically requested.

Unsolicited email for marketing or promotional purposes is inappropriate.

A letter in the mail offering future services is OK if you had a conversation with this individual and they expressed interest in receiving additional information.

Newsletters by mail or email are acceptable as long as procedures for opting out from future communications are clear and followed.
Invitation to an educational event is acceptable by mail or email.

Is it OK to send greeting cards with your company name on it to all members listed in the directory? This is acceptable as long as solicitation is not part of the card either directly or indirectly.

Is it acceptable to ask another WLA member to recommend our products or services? This is acceptable if you have a professional relationship with this person.

Can I use WLA to build business? Yes. By building relationships and working on committees and lending your expertise to projects and programs when called upon. Through professional support, you can better understand the needs of WLA members, and through networking, they can understand what you have to offer.

How can I use the membership directory? You may use it to find the name and number of someone who you may have met at an event. You may use it to contact a member to ask for help. You may not use it to market your business or solicit business.

Can I pass out literature about my business at WLA Conferences/Events (physical/web)? If you are taking advantage of an WLA sponsorship opportunity you may distribute literature per the terms of that agreement. Members are not to leave promotional materials on meeting tables or openly distribute such during conference/events (physical/web).

Can I call upon members when I have a question and want ideas on how other people might handle a particular situation? Yes, this is one of the values of belonging to WLA. It provides opportunities to learn from each other, both formally and informally. Contact via mail, email or telephone is appropriate. This contact should not however be used to solicit business.

Can I send my newsletter or information about an educational session my organization is offering to all members listed in the Members Directory? No. You can only send your newsletter and similar educational materials to members with whom you have established a direct relationship.

How can I use WLA Network, the association’s email discussion forum? WLA Network is a powerful tool for accessing the experiences and knowledge of other members. Users of this discussion service must adhere to the association’s non-solicitation guidelines. Communications with another member through WLA Network does not, on its own, constitute having established a direct relationship.

Members are encouraged to report violations of the association’s terms of use agreement to WLA’s leadership. WLA’s policy is to investigate any complaint fully and, when in doubt, to err on the side of ensuring that its terms of use agreement is fully adhered by all of its members.
