Governing Documents


The IDEC Policy and Procedures Manual is a living document that embodies the organization’s mission, values, and vision, outlining its activities and supporting its bylaws. Its purpose is to guide the Board of Directors and provide a resource for active members. All IDEC leaders must be familiar with its contents to ensure the smooth functioning of various IDEC groups and effectively serve the membership. These policies were approved in April 2019 and undergo annual reviews.
