Introduction

This manual contains policies addressing the operations of the NJSBA, regulations developed to implement them, exhibits providing procedural details and the bylaws (9000 series) of the Association.

The manual is updated regularly as needed. It is maintained by the NJSBA Legal and Policy Services Department and any questions regarding its content or use may be directed to Policy Services at 609 695 7600, extension 5222.

How to Use the Manual

The manual is organized into nine sections, each addressing a different aspect of Association operations and each with its own index.

Note: This is an index system, not a table of contents. It is designed to identify a comprehensive list of possible policy topics and therefore not every index topic is addressed by policy.

The user should first identify the general subject of the policy sought and, after turning to the appropriate section, seek the file code number of the particular policy topic wanted.

At the bottom of each page you will find reference to the number of pages containing current Association policy on the same policy topic. Be sure to check all pages indicated to review all policies on this topic.

For each policy statement you will also find the source of the policy indicated as Authority. The following key explains the origin of the policy.

DA-/-/-Delegate AssemblyMonth/Year/Resolution Number
BD-/-Board of Director’sMonth/Year of Meeting
EC-/-Executive CommitteeMonth/Year of Meeting
CRCommittee Reports
Technical Change-/-A change made only to correct inconsistent language

For each regulation you will find the date it was issued, and for both policy and regulation, dates of revision when called for.

A file code number after Cross Filed means the same policy statement or regulation can be found at that file code number.

See Also identifies other policy statements or regulations that address related aspects of the topic. These should be reviewed to ensure a complete understanding of Association practice on the topic.
