Planning & Policy
We all know we need policies and procedures, and we also know they take time to develop. When developing policies and procedures for your own organization, it can be beneficial to review examples. Of course, your final version needs to reflect your organization's practices, but it can be helpful to start with a pre-existing document for inspiration rather than beginning from a blank paper.
We have compiled examples to get you started. Download the pdfs or email firstname.lastname@example.org for a word file.
