Policy concerning nonpartisanship, elections, and candidates

Network Delaware is a nonpartisan 501(c)3 nonprofit that engages in the political realm. We encourage our members to become informed about elections, candidates, and public policy.

However, Network Delaware as an organization refrains from supporting or opposing any political party, any candidate for public office, any group that directly aids candidates, or any other effort that could be defined as “Campaign Activity.” We prohibit campaign literature and electioneering at official Network Delaware functions.

In addition, Network Delaware board members must resign their position when they become an official candidate for office. Elected officials are also prohibited from serving on Network Delaware’s board.

Network Delaware believes the active involvement of individuals in elections and campaigns is beneficial to our democracy. Consequently, the Network encourages our members as individuals to be active in the political process such as getting involved in political parties, in finding and supporting candidates for public office, and in seeking election to public office.

It shall be the responsibility of the board of directors of Network Delaware to ensure that the organization’s nonpartisanship is maintained.
