Ask the Expert: How CASL Affects Libraries
Continuing Education Certificate credits: 1
By now you are most likely aware that Canada’s Anti-Spam Legislation (CASL) recently came into force. However, you may still be asking yourself: “Does this apply to me?” and if so, “what do I need to do?”
Ottawa-based regulatory expert Shaun Brown will take your questions, providing some clarity by considering the following issues:
-The types of messages sent by libraries that may be subject to CASL
-Options for obtaining consent
-The requirements that must be met when sending messages
-Demonstrating compliance and due diligence
Registrations are welcome to send questions to Shaun in advance via email@example.com by August 20. If you wish to ask a question anonymously, please specify in your message. This session is free to Partnership members and CLA members. Registration closes at 6 pm on August 19.
