Membership Notices Guidelines
As a member of the GHRA, the member is entitled to share important and industry related information to the entire membership base as long as the information relates to any part of the mission statement and will not be considered CAN-SPAM (Controlling the Assault of Non-Solicited Pornography and Marketing Act) which was passed by Congress in November 2003. CAN-SPAM does allow non-profit organizations to send advocacy messages without commercial content.
Members requesting to send information to the GHRA membership must:
- provide the information to the GHRA office 48 hours advance notice before the intended delivery date
- provide complete and truthful header information that accurately describes the contents of the e-mail
- include company information
- not solicit or have any commercial content, which may be labeled as an advertisement
- not exceed 1 MB
- not include information which violates privacy
For other forms of communications with GHRA members including solicitations or marketing information, a member or non-member may contact the GHRA office to purchase the membership database for a nominal fee. Otherwise, the membership database is available through the annual directory or the GHRA website.
The GHRA is allowed to send solicitations for GHRA sponsored events.

- The message includes illegal activity
- The message disparages the GHRA name and image
- The member is submitting information for a third party
