An association is not authorized to share, distribute or publish private information to the public relating to its members.

For most states, nonprofit codes will advise what personal contact records an association is required to keep, but this information should never be voluntarily distributed to third parties without member consent.

The risk is that an association cannot control how released contact information will be handled. Third parties could easily use this information to make deals for advertising purposes, to release private ownership information, or to jeopardize the member’s safety.

Member information should always be presented as an opt-in scenario, in which the members can take affirmative steps to share their information, instead of an opt-out in which the information is given by the association, and members have to take steps to remove that information.
