Delegate Handbook

Download the 2021 Delegate Handbook (v2)

Version Note: v2 of the Delegate Handbook contains two new documents – the listing of delegates and alternates and the roster of reference committee members.

Navigation Note: The file has bookmarks and links for each of the agenda items, including reports and resolutions. Once you have downloaded and saved the document, it should open with the bookmarks showing on the left side for easy navigation. If for some reason you don’t see the bookmarks, select View, Navigation Panels, and Bookmarks to show the links. You’ll note that you can drill down to individual bookmarks on some items like the WSMA Bylaws and Policy Compendium. Again, you will want to be sure you are viewing it in Acrobat Reader and not online in order for the bookmarks to work. There is a lot of material here and the bookmarks and links should make it more manageable to navigate.

Disclaimer: Reports and Resolutions included in the Delegate Handbook are items to be considered by the House of Delegates. No action has been taken on any of these items. Resolutions are submitted by WSMA delegates/delegations, the WSMA Board of Trustees, and WSMA sections and are informational only until they have been acted upon by the House. The statements and opinions expressed in resolutions are those of the authors and the WSMA makes no representations of any kind about the accuracy of information contained therein. Only those items that have been acted upon by the House can be considered official.
