Policies & Procedures Committee

Over the decades, San Francisco Pride's policies and procedures have grown somewhat lengthy and out-of-date. To simplify them and make it easier for the Board to conduct business, we are undertaking a major revision, section by section.

The P&P Committee has taken great care to incorporate member feedback at every stage of review. On this page you'll find links to feedback forms for each chunk of policy, and the order they will be reviewed.

The P&P manual is available in the top menu as "Bylaws+" for brevity, and here: SF Pride Policies and Procedures PDF
