Important Information for CDJA Members:
 

  • UPDATE TO CKC Policy & Procedures - Chapter 7
    APPENDIX 1 – Personal Use of Social Media Guidelines for CKC Judges [Board Motion #40-09-20 Update: Amended 30-06-21] 

    Judges are held to higher standards of conduct and should abide by the CKC principles of impartiality, integrity, and ethics outlined in this section on the use of social media.
    Judges must:
    • Be mindful, when using social media, of their professional association with the CKC and strive not to bring CKC into disrepute.
    • Understand that what is said and done on social media can reflect on yourself, your colleagues and the CKC as a whole.
    • Maintain professional decorum and be aware that using social media to solicit assignments, make derogatory comments, re-posting comments or endorsements, or for self-promotion may result in
    disciplinary action.
    • Refrain from the expression of personal opinions on controversial subjects, including placements, judging, and critiques which can undermine the credibility of judges and the CKC, and erode the trust
    of CKC members.
    • Consider inappropriate public and private contacts through social media the same as verbal or written contacts and subject to regulations listed under rule 4.1.5, violation which must be reported to CKC.
