Press Policies and Requirements

CUPA-HR Press Policies and Requirements

CUPA-HR values our important relationship with the media; however we must keep our members’ and presenters’ best interests in mind. To maintain this balance, we have outlined the following policies and requirements for all press in attendance at any CUPA-HR event.

The College and University Professional Association for Human Resources, as a private voluntary association, reserves the right to exclude the Press from any of its meetings, seminars, or workshops at the discretion of the Board of Directors of CUPA-HR as delegated to the President and Chief Executive Officer.

The following guidelines are provided:

A. For meetings, seminars, and workshops which are open to non-members and where a non-member may pay a fee and be allowed to participate, CUPA-HR may require a member of the Press to pay the participant non-member fee in order to be in attendance. Where information gained is copyrighted or declared a trade secret, the approval of CUPA-HR must be obtained in writing in order to publicly publish the specific information obtained.

B. Members of the Press who are present at CUPA-HR sponsored activities as a non-paying participant will be required to register with CUPA-HR and wear an appropriate “Press Badge” issued by CUPA-HR.

C. If a member of the press attends a concurrent session at a CUPA-HR program, the individual must arrive prior to the start of the session and let the presenter(s) know that he or she is in the room.

If there is anything CUPA-HR can do to better accommodate your needs as our media representative, please do not hesitate to let us know.

Thank you,
CUPA-HR
