Media, Social Media, and Recording Policy:

  1. Professional media organization representatives are required to obtain advanced accreditation to attend the Catholic Social Ministry Gathering (see CSMG Media Accreditation page).
  2. Social media use is encouraged at CSMG.  However, CSMG participants are responsible for their own use of social media during the Gathering, and are asked to be respectful of other participants, and to follow normal courtesies in this regard.  Note the following exception about off the record sessions.
  3. Closed to media sessions will be announced and/or posted at the beginning of some meetings or noted in program materials. We ask participants to respect the confidentiality of these sessions to make them as productive as possible.  No social media posting, recording, or reporting of any kind is permitted from sessions that are announced as closed to media.
  4. Recording of entire sessions at CSMG for the purposes of posting, sharing, or distribution is not permitted.  Any questions about recordings of CSMG keynotes, plenaries, or other presentations should be directed to Ivone Guillen, Program Coordinator.
  5. CSMG participants consent to being recorded.  Official CSMG representatives will be recording some CSMG events and functions in part or in full, and the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) may make them available after the meeting for official purposes. By your attendance at CSMG, you hereby agree that you may be photographed, videoed, or recorded and that such photography, video, and/or recording will be owned by USCCB and may be edited, modified and distributed by USCCB in any format chosen by USCCB.

Dear CSMG participants,

We want to alert you to a scam related to hotel reservations that has affected a number of major conferences recently.  If you receive a phone call or message asking you to call someone back related to CSMG and are then asked to provide credit card information to reserve your hotel room, do not do so. THIS IS A SCAM. All reservations must instead be made by contacting the hotel directly, as described here [Book online now].  Please note the Omni and or any hotel would not be contacting participants about their hotel reservation, unless, originally initiated by that person.

We apologize for any inconvenience and look forward to your participation at CSMG.
