ALAO Procedures Manual

Introduction

This is a working document intended to inform all ALAO board members, elected and appointed, including committee and interest group chairs as well as members of those groups. Nothing in these Procedures takes precedence over the Bylaws; inform the Past President or Manual Revision Coordinator of any discrepencies.  Board members are responsible for reviewing the documents pertaining to your office or appointment and following the stated procedures and policies. You are also responsible for sharing these procedures with your committee, interest group, or other working group members.

Any board member may propose revisions by submitting changes to the Manual Revision Coordinator (MRC) and/or Past President; please do so in a timely manner so that the manual reflects actual practice. Significant departure from written procedures or policies should be brought to the board for discussion before revision; the MRC or Past President will guide this process. Ideally, every board member will review the relevant sections of the Manual prior to the Annual Leadership meeting, to guide new board members and remind retiring board members of changes that should be incorporated into the Manual.
