Social Media Policy

Purpose and Scope

The online landscape is dynamic, and this provides Cairns Radio Controlled Model Car Club
 with the opportunity to communicate with its members, promote the club to prospective members and generally raise the awareness and interest in the RC hobby. Social media creates the opportunity for personal expression about the club and hobby, but it also creates risks and responsibilities.
You should assume that anything you do on social media (e.g. post, comment, upload images) will be seen by club committee members, members and potential members, as well as club sponsors and suppliers, governing bodies, fellow RC organisations and the general public. Your online activity, whether on a Cairns RC social media page/group or not, can and does reflect upon the club.

The club maintains the following social media pages/groups and is subject to change at any time.

• Cairns RC –
•Cairns Rc –
• Cairns RC Club  –

Administration and Moderation

The Cairns RC committee is responsible for the administration and moderation of content posted to the club’s social media pages/groups. The committee members have the authority to post, approve, decline, edit or remove content published to these pages/groups. From time to time, the club committee may add or remove additional administrators and/or moderators to club social media pages as deemed appropriate. Should a member of the club committee resign or vacate their role, they will be removed as an administrator and/or moderator of all Cairns RC social media pages/groups, unless it is agreed upon by the committee that
they remain. In the event there is disagreement between club committee members over any content to be approved, declined, edited or removed on any page/group; or the appointment/removal of administrators/moderators to any social
media page/group, the club committee President has the right to the final decision.


Cairns RC values the support provided by our sponsors, fellow RC clubs and other organisations and business associated with the RC community and the club views the use of social media for advertising and/or promotion as an essential tool in raising interest in and growing our hobby.
The club has guidelines to ensure the nature and frequency of advertising/promotional content posted to the club’s social media pages/groups is appropriate and does not detract from the intent of the page.
