About the Training

Great policies and procedures are a critical piece of effective SILC management.  We may hear them begrudged as tedious or bureaucratic, but the fact is that they are there for our benefit and can be incredibly useful. Policies and procedures are a road map to keep you and your Council happy, functional, and in compliance.  They’re helpful day-to-day and can be invaluable in times of uncertainty or transition. 

You will learn how strong policies and procedures can define and improve all types of SILC operations, including member recruitment and training, term limits / removal, fiscal procedures, funding regulations, personnel management, and more.
