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 Affiliates often use materials from this handbook to pattern their own developing policies, and they are welcome to do so. The PDF version was revised on June 2020; updates may be found using the links below.
