To receive Announce messages, users subscribe using their ECU email account. The list is not moderated, so messages are distributed immediately. Each message should follow the Announce Guidelines.
Announce is for ECU business only. University policy prohibits personal "door-to-door" solicitation by all users, including faculty, staff, ECU clubs and ECU organizations. This prohibition includes, but is not limited to, the following:
As a reminder, the State Employees Combined Campaign (SECC) is the only officially authorized event for canvassing and promoting voluntary donations from ECU employees to external organizations. This campaign is conducted annually in the fall. However, Announce can be used from time to time to draw attention to officially sanctioned events and activities provided they originate from and/or significantly benefit an ECU unit, activity, or official organization. The rule of thumb is that 50% or more of the proceeds of any event publicized should go toward the ECU-related organization/club/activity or the service activity/cause should be a primary outreach for an ECU unit/club/activity. In addition, the guideline for only a single posting also applies. Users should refrain from posting or reposting fund raising and charity event notices from external sources (churches, businesses, etc.) that are not directly related to ECU.
Users failing to adhere to the basic guidelines may:
| 1st Offense
||Receive a guideline reminder message,|
|2nd Offense||Receive a guideline reminder message with a copy sent to supervisor,|
|3rd Offense||Be blocked from using Announce|
