Procedures Manual
(proposed revisions)
At the AGM, Members will be asked to endorse changes to the Procedures Manual portion of the 2016 Yellow Book. To review those changes, download:

The Yellow Book (v.2016)
[click image to view/download]

RSCDS Toronto Association was legally incorporated in 2004, which required adoption by our membership of the following legal documents: 
• Legal Objects
• By-Laws
• Procedures Manual 

In addition to these documents, there is a detailed Operations Manual, providing Job Descriptions for each appointed position in the Association.  All these documents are compiled into what is affectionately known as “The Yellow Book" as shown above.  

In 2015, the Board updated The Yellow Book to reflect changes made to our organisation over the past few years.  This revised version is now completed and available to all of the membership by clicking on the image above.

The Yellow Book includes:
• Preface - including Legal Objects, the Governance Model, Annual Schedule and Organisational Structure
• By-Laws - no changes have been made since 2006
• Procedures Manual - outlining how the Association currently works, as ratified at the 2016 AGM

• Operations Manual - including updated Officer, Director, Committee and Convenor Responsibilities
• Appendices - including definitions and policies that guide Operations (the Appendices are still pending)
