DAA Code of Ethics Update - Volunteers Needed

Background:

In 2010 cookies, "Do Not Track" and privacy concerns were serious issues affecting the digital analytics industry. In that year, the DAA's first Code of Ethics was proposed and, after a crowd-sourced initiative involving hundreds of emails, blog posts/comments and tweets from 100+ contributors, the Code was launched.

Seven years later as we approach 2018, these issues continue to be debated while new ones like GDPR, AI, IoT, cybersecurity and alternative facts raise new questions about the ethical use of data.

Purpose:

In the interest of continuing to promote ethical data practices, giving the responsible treatment of consumer data the respect and attention it deserves, and helping to ensure the DAA has a stake in the conversation, we think it is time to revisit the Code of Ethics. The purpose of this task force is to:
  • Update the DAA's Code of Ethics language to reflect new DAA branding
  • Determine whether any new language should be added, changed or removed
  • Decide how to further promote the CoE
  • Discuss what role, if any, the DAA can/should play beyond the CoE

We are seeking a minimum of 5 people and a maximum of 12 to help with this task force.

Responsibilities:

  • Read the Code of Ethics
  • Attend kick-off call
  • Participate in regular conference calls (approximately 2 - 4 one-hour calls per month for 4 months)
  • Come prepared to discuss your experience and opinion
  • Contribute by brainstorming, researching, writing, note-taking, surveying and promoting

Goals:

  • Update and re-launch the Code of Ethics by April 30, 2018
  • Task force determined number of pledges

If you would like to volunteer for this task force or if you have questions, please contact DAA board member Aaron Maass.


The DAA wants you!:  A/B Certificate Volunteers Needed

We're looking to build a team to help create our A/B Testing exam. First task: review current - and identify new - educational resources.  After looking over some of the materials we've collected already and finding some on your own, we'll meet for a wrap-up with a phone meeting. Some of us will stick around and create the certificate exam as our next task. Help us out! Collaborate with your peers! Build your professional network! Contact Sarah Clopton (sclopton@digitalanalyticsassociation.org) for details.

DAA Community Task Force Volunteer Opportunity

Seeking volunteers interested in helping to increase participation in the DAA Community for the benefit of the membership. This will be a year long commitment.

Join the DAA Community Task Force to get leadership experience and an enhanced reputation among DAA members. Active volunteers will also receive a letter of participation that they can use in their personnel file.  

DAA Community Task Force Responsibilities:

  • Create conversation by starting new threads
  • Reply to unanswered posts
  • Encourage participation of other DAA members
  • Review Recipes in the Analytics Cookbook
  • Participate in a monthly call

Time Commitment for Volunteers:

There will be 2-3 hours of work per month. This group will use conference calls for group meetings but not all work will involve group discussion. Individuals will be able to complete tasks on their own when their schedule permits, such as reviewing recipes.

If you would like to volunteer for this task force or if you have questions, please contact Catherine Hackney at chackney@digitalanalyticsassociation.org.
