All HNBA Profiles already existing on a social media site as of the effective date of this Policy shall be deemed approved pending a review and evaluation by the HNBA Director of Operations and/or Chair of Special Committee on Communications. Entities with pre-existing social media sites must submit an Existing Social Media Account Form. If the HNBA Director of Operations and/or Chair of Special Committee on Communications determine that an HNBA Profile is not compliant with this Policy, the HNBA Director of Operations and/or Chair of Special Committee on Communications shall work with the HNBA entity to correct any deficiencies and bring the site into compliance, if possible. At the direction of the HNBA Director of Operations and/or Chair of Special Committee on Communications, the Entity may need to temporarily disable the site pending correction of deficiencies.

PLEASE NOTE: As a condition of approval, an HNBA National Office Member must first be made an owner (with full administrative rights) to the proposed HNBA social media account.
