Draft Revisions to Policies and Procedures

At the fall Executive Committee meeting, Mathilda Navias and Jeff Cooper agreed to consider needed updates to our Policies and Procedures manual. They have compiled a six-page document that groups suggested changes in four categories: A) those requiring discernment by the Meeting; B) those recognizing changes in current practice; C) policies and procedures already approved but not yet included; and D) minor changes in wording or arrangement; new text is shown in red font. This document can be viewed here.

Friends may wish to consider the proposed changes before Annual Sessions. To provide context, these changes are also shown – again in red font – within the full text of Policies and Procedures here. Please note that in the full text file, the table of contents, header guides, page breaks, and index have not yet been updated, as these will inevitably change, depending on what new text is adopted. Communications about these suggestions are welcome; contact Jeff at cooperdaub@hotmail.com.
