SWANA Management and Administrative Policies

Management and Administrative (MA) Policies cover the policies and procedures for all SWANA member, directors, officers, chapters, regions, and staff. New MA policies or revisions are originated by either the Executive Director/ CEO, a member of the Board of Directors, or the chair of a standing committee. The originator does not have to be the primary author, but must be the person responsible for completing the MA-0 process.

SWANA Management and Administrative Policies are only available to SWANA members.
