Please note: the Handbook has been reformatted. Changes include combining the six chapters into a single document with consistent fonts, styles, and numbering. A table of contents has also been added to each chapter. All Handbook language changes approved in 2012-2013 have been made to the document, but no additional content has been altered. However, some of the numbering has changed. If you have other documents that refer to numbered sections in the Handbook, please update those references. Under RESOURCES below there is a "cheat sheet" that may be able to assist you.
The most recent version of the Handbook is always available on this website, so we encourage you to avoid downloading the document. Some minor additional reformatting will take place this year (i.e. consistent capitalization rules, consistent rules for words that can be spelled multiple ways like by-laws vs. bylaws).
If you have questions about the reformatting or need a copy of the Word version of any section of the Handbook in order to propose changes, please request a copy from:
