Political Guidelines

Is it permissible for EGA, chapters, or regions to support or oppose candidates running for office?

No. EGA's nonprofit status prevents EGA, including chapters and regions, from supporting or opposing candidates running for office.

Does this mean that members cannot wear political buttons at EGA events?

No, but members should be careful to avoid actions or statements that could be interpreted as coming from EGA. For example, don't pin the button to your nametag or EGA signage, no political literature on function tables, and so forth.

Is it okay for a chapter or region to establish a policy prohibiting the wearing of political buttons at the chapter's or region's event?

Yes.
