ACB Manual For Board Members


This manual was written to assist state and special interest affiliate board members with procedures that would be beneficial for the organization. It should help make transition from being a member of the organization to having a position as a board member. Affiliates operate in different ways, but these guidelines should be relevant to all. Obviously, not all board members have the same capabilities and these are not meant to discourage any current board members. However, this manual is meant to provide some guidelines that should benefit the affiliate.
