The Executive Board has introduced a new volunteer policy that aims to ensure that all members involved in volunteer and outreach activities have undergone a California Megan's Law website or National Sex Offender Registry check. (See attached document)
The California Attorney General runs a website (the “California Megan’s Law Website”) and the US Department of Justice operates a National Sex Offender Registry, both of which provide information on registered sex offenders pursuant to California Penal Code § 290.46 and comparable federal laws so that members of the public can better protect themselves and their families.
By registering as a SABA members you'll need to fill out the attached form through the electronic survey link and filling in the information, you agree that we may check your name against the Megan’s Law and/or National Registry databases from time to time. You further agree to hold harmless and release the Sacramento Area Beekeeper's Association from any claims associated with or related to any alleged right of privacy in such information. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Sacramento Area Beekeeper's Association has no responsibility or duty to conduct such searches and does not in any way represent or warrant the fitness or expertise of any Director, volunteer, beekeeper or other person associated with or working with our organization.
