Bee Sober is a non-profit social group for people who have an uninterrupted period of sobriety of at least 30 days and intend to maintain a sober lifestyle.
The Parties agree and acknowledge that the ambassador shall host face to face and/or online social events, without profit, in connection with Bee Sober operating through central social media channels. The ambassador agrees that all events will be free or priced at cost value.
As an ambassador of Bee Sober you are representing the Bee Sober brand and its ethos. You are expected to be confident in your sobriety in order to become an ambassador and have good intentions to remain sober throughout the duration of your contract with us. To be an ambassador, you agree to pay your monthly or annual Bee Sober membership subscription to maintain your ambassador role. Our Bee Sober ambassadors need to have a full understanding of the benefits of our monthly membership and be interactive within our community, therefore full membership is an essential requirement.
Should you decide to drink alcohol, please inform us, and without judgement, we will fully support you to work through this.
Please ensure all your event attendees have a minimum of 30 days uninterrupted sobriety prior to attending your face to face events unless clearly stated that the event is a sober curious event. This policy is in place to protect the sobriety of others in the group. The idea of Bee Sober is to allow people to meet like-minded individuals and create safe friendships. Anyone can follow your Instagram account and join your Facebook group but if someone in your group does not have the minimum 30-days sobriety, please direct them to The Sober Experiment. Alcohol must not have been consumed by participants on the date of attendance to your event.
As a Bee Sober ambassador, you will not be permitted to sell your own products to our Members or promote other brands, products or other individuals if they pose a conflict of interest. This includes (but is not limited to) sobriety/accountability challenges/sober coaching/courses, other services and products that Bee Sober offers.
Social media channels including but not limited to Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Pinterest, among others can be set up using the brand name Bee Sober but will remain the property of Bee Sober and as such, if an ambassador chooses to relinquish responsibilities, these will be transferred to the new ambassador for that region. Any social media images must be fully aligned with Bee Sober branding and produced to a very high standard.
Personal and political views should not be expressed in your Bee Sober social media posts.
The ambassador may set up a regional Facebook page and can also set up a private Bee Sober Social Facebook group if they wish, which they are responsible for running and moderating and it is the responsibility of the ambassador to post details of all upcoming events on their Bee Sober Facebook page and share into their own regional Facebook group. Members should also be directed towards the main Bee Sober Support Group. Please also ensure the main Bee Sober CIC page is tagged in to your posts so we can share. All events must be submitted through the Bee Sober website.
One central newsletter will be sent out by Bee Sober to all members, monthly, across all regions - please encourage your members to sign up to this. In order for events to be shared on the newsletter, please submit all events through the website. The newsletter will be sent out during the last week of each month, therefore please ensure all events you wish to include for the following month are submitted to the website before the last week of each month. Please do not send out individual newsletters.
Please join the Team Facebook group so we can keep you up to date with upcoming events and important information.
The ambassador will be expected to provide us with an email address that can be shared on our website. You may set up a Gmail account for local emails such as beesober[region]@gmail.com. In the event of relinquishing ambassador status, the email will be closed or transferred to the new Ambassador for that region.
The ambassador can set up a designated Bee Sober Instagram account for their region, or use your existing account naming your role as a Bee Sober ambassador in the bio. Please ensure you tag in @beesober.cic in all event posts so we can share to the community. In the event of relinquishing ambassador status, any designated Instagram account must be closed or preferably transferred to the us or the new ambassador for that region. If you use your own account, our name and any branding must be removed from your bio.
The ambassador may set up a Linktree account for any Bee Sober links, their own Facebook page, Facebook group, Instagram, Newsletter sign up and any other links they wish to include or these can be added to your existing linktree.
The ambassador will be expected to keep social media channels up to date with at least one Bee Sober post per week.

PLEASE NOTE THAT BY AGREEING TO THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, YOU ARE ALSO AGREEING TO MEMBER TERMS AND CONDITIONS. YOU SHOULD READ THIS DOCUMENT IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE MEMBER TERMS AND CONDITIONS.
Ambassadors should aim to host a minimum of one event per month. These do not have to be large events, and should reflect your own interests to ensure you are building a community that you are fully committed to being a part of and that you are enjoying.
Events can be as simple as going for coffee or a walk or as elaborate as you wish but members should only be charged at cost and no profit should ever be made.
In some cases, a face to face event may not always be possible and ambassadors have access to the Bee Sober Zoom account to host online events. We also recommend setting up your own free Zoom account to host short 40-minute meet-ups at your convenience.
Please DO NOT CANCEL EVENTS without informing us and all attendees. In some cases, we may be able to stand in for you (location permitting) or you can change your event to an online event. Cancelling events at short notice can be very disruptive for people and often they rely on your meetups as their only source of support. Please only cancel if absolutely necessary and only once we have been informed so that we can support you to make the necessary communication with all Bee Sober Members.
