Default Rules for IAP Fund Raising.

IAP Raffles, Swaps (blanks, pens or whatever) and Other Activities

First and foremost, as per the Terms of Service, all fund raisers of any kind will be for site support.

If you have an idea for a fund raiser, want to start a blank swap, pen swap or some other activity that will involve the membership as a whole, you must run the idea by me. If it meets the Terms of Service, I will assist you in organizing the event. That does not mean I will run the event, however I will help you in every way I can.

I will not get involved in local chapter activities. However, local chapters must remember that everything posted at the IAP site is subject to the TOS. If you wish to run a local fund raiser, it must be conducted locally, and not on the IAP forum.

If your proposed event involves raising money and meets the TOS, we will use my PayPal address for purchase of tickets. Once the event concludes, I will send a check to Jeff Brown for the proceeds less PayPal fees. This has worked well for us in the past and I see no reason to change.

If we have another event going on when you propose your idea, your project may be delayed to avoid having too much going on at one time. Do not be offended; just remember that the primary focus of the IAP is penturning and the exchange of knowledge between members.

We will not have frequent fund raisers. This is a free forum and too many fund raisers can risk the appearance of making it a money raising forum. We all want this to be a great place to visit without the routine requests for money.

If there are any problems with the event, let me handle them. For example, if a member does not keep their commitment to swap pens, blanks, or whatever, report that to me. I will try to contact the member and find out what is the problem. If I cannot solve the problem, I will put the member’s name on a list. When we have another swap event, I will check my list and delete any member on this list. To get off this list, the member must honor their commitment for the preceding event to the total satisfaction of the member that did not receive the promised goods from them. Once this is done, I will remove their name from the list.

If you choose to start a forum-wide activity without running it by me, the event will be cancelled without comment and the thread on the subject removed.
