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.
