Workshops you attend do not involve casting, casting promises or anything more than information/educational use.

From the Casting Society of America related to California disclosure laws: 

Classes taught by Casting Directors and Associates must be for instructional purposes only and not a “paid audition.” 

The workshop must clearly post that taking part in the class you are teaching is not a guarantee of employment. 

Casting Directors and Associates should be aware of how the Workshop Company advertises the Casting Director’s participation - especially on the Workshop’s website. 

A Casting office’s current projects must not be advertised.
Sides must be from past projects or material that has already been cast but can not be from projects currently being cast. 

Head-shots from the actors in the class can not be collected and taken at the end of the class. 

Casting Associates (and Assistants) must follow the guidelines and obtain a letter of approval to teach from a Casting Director they have worked for within the last 18 months.
