Draft PFLA Manual

Dear Members,
Over the past two years, with oversight from two PFLA boards, the attached revised PFLA Manual has been constructed and is ready for your review.  The Manual has undergone significant updating, editing and reorganization for easier use and understanding, and to respond to changing needs.  The pending Constitutional changes and approved By-Law changes from the 2015 meeting have been incorporated.

The draft Manual has been reviewed and approved by the Board of Directors.

Attached [sent to members, via email] is the complete draft Manual; a summary of the revisions to the Manual’s chapters beyond the Constitution and By-Laws: our two funds; PFLA Officers, Committee Functions and Responsibilities and Roles, and Rules and Regulations; and a proposed addition to the By-Laws, which will be on our Annual Meeting agenda for approval in June.

Please review the Manual and email or mail your written comments to Bill Fredrick (wfredrick5@aol.com; 35 Valley Road, Madison, NJ 07940) by noon, April 30.  All comments must be in writing with the name of the commenting member clearly indicated.   The Board of Directors will review and incorporate the comments appropriately and the final Manual will then be distributed to all.

This work is not completed yet, but I want to thank Bill Fredrick for his many hours of work and perseverance in this effort.  I also want to thank the many directors and others that have donated their time during the past two years while we have been working on these documents.
