Policies Guidelines and Procedures

 LWVMD Policies, Guidelines and Procedures is a reference for LWVMD Board members about how the organization operates. The handbook discusses hands-on “how we do it” aspects of the LWVMD. It also outlines the ethical and philosophical underpinnings that determine the way the League functions. LLs, MALs and MAL Units often use materials from this handbook to pattern their own developing policies, and they are welcome to do so. The current edition was adopted on June 6, 2016.
