  8. I agree to be responsible for communicating CFC information to any employees or volunteers that represent at Metro Denver Combined Federal Campaign events, including, but not limited to Charity Fairs/Kickoffs and Speaking Presentations. I understand that representatives from our organization represent every charity in the CFC, as well as other participants in the CFC according to regulation 5 CFR Part 950.105(b) and 950.105(c)2(i). I am willing and able to enter Federal Government facilities on behalf of my charity. From the Contract: Thank you for partnering with the CFC! 8

  9. I have proper photo ID (driver’s license, passport, or other) which I will bring to any Campaign event, as well as current auto registration, proof of auto insurance and I understand my vehicle may be subject to inspectionat any Federal Government facility. I understand that each Federal Government facility has its own rules, regulations and protocoland I agree to learn and adhere to them while representing the CFC. I understand that if I (or any other representative of my charity) am reported for inappropriate behavior during a Speaking Presentation including, but not limited to, proselytizing, political discussions, asking directly for pledges to my charity or disparaging another CFC charity in any way, my charity will be excluded from participating inany other CFC events for the 2011 Campaign. From the Contract: Thank you for partnering with the CFC! 9

  10. I understand that I am expected to arrive at least fifteen minutes before a Campaign event is scheduled to begin and that I am expected toassist CFC staff and volunteers with set up and cleanup at any CFC event where my help may be needed. I understand that I am expected to provide assistance (staff or volunteers) for Materials Packing. (This is the process of bundling donation materials including pledge forms and charity brochures for each Federal agency and is done at the CFC Warehouse on the Denver Federal Center.) I understand that I will likely be sharing a table with another charity representative and will not use more than my allotted space for my display. From the Contract: Thank you for partnering with the CFC! 10

  11. I understand that participation in Campaign events is for outreach only; I will not sell itemsat Campaign events or participate in direct fundraising in any other way, including, but not limited to, asking Federal employees to donate directly to my charity, engaging in raffle or gaming activities, or placing collection containers on my display. I understand that I am a guest in any Federal Government facility where I am participating in a CFC event and will behave graciously and respectfully at all times to Federal employees as well as other charities. As a representative the Metro Denver Combined Federal Campaign, I will dress in a professional manner: no flip flops, short shorts, or political t-shirts. From the Contract: Thank you for partnering with the CFC! 11

  12. I understand that I may not be asked for Speaking Presentations as that is determined by Federal employees and that Imay not be selected to attend certain Charity Fairs.I also understand that I may be contacted by CFC staff or Federal volunteers to participate in any CFC events and I agree to respond to requests in as timely a manner as possible. I understand that CFC staff will confirm my eligibility to attend Charity Fair/Kickoff events and will not send representatives without that confirmation. (This is only for fairs – Federal staff independently coordinate Speaking Presentations at their locations and CFC staff are not involved in the details.) I will contact a CFC staff person to report any significant problems encountered during the Campaign. From the Contract: Thank you for partnering with the CFC! 12
