INTRODUCTION

This manual was created for the benefit of all Sections of the American Institute of Professional Geologists (AIPG). The contents of this document were selected to provide a fundamental source of information, documentation, and general guidance for all Members.

A major objective in creating this Manual is the establishment of a uniform and consistent operational guide for all AIPG Sections to encourage Sections to benefit from the experiences of each other and the National organization. The Manual will also preclude each Section from having to go through a learning process each time it decides to implement a service or activity new to the particular Section.

Contributions to this document were made by many individuals and Sections. There is no pride of authorship except for the documents which have been expressly and legally created through the rightful actions of the National Executive Committee. All documents can be copied and otherwise used by the Section Officers if doing so will assist them in performing official duties.

This edition of the Section Officers Manual is the first. It is based upon existing legal instruments which established AIPG and allow AIPG to function as a non-profit entity. The Manual uses as references AIPG Bylaws, AIPG Policies and Procedures, the AIPG Code of Ethics, and other guidance documents, internal memoranda, and forms.

As you use this manual, you will recognize subjects requiring more detail or revision. Your Section may have a unique experience from which all Sections and National would benefit. If at any time you wish to recommend modifications/additions to the Manual which would benefit the entire body of AIPG, please submit your recommendations to the National Executive Committee for consideration and incorporation into Addenda and subsequent Editions of the Manual.
