Book of Motions
Jum. 2010

The Book of Motions is a chronological record of every motion that has come before the Area body for discussion, along with the result of the motion - pass or fail. 

Book of
Current
Practices
Oct. 2009

 

The Book of Current Practices is a document which includes only the motions which dictate how Area 15 functions today. Obsolete motions are not included in the Book of Current Practices.
To clarify, let’s look at a simple example...
Motion A passes for the Treatment Committee to receive $100 every quarter for the purchase of literature. At that point in time, Motion A would be the current practice. However, a few years later, Motion B passes for the Treatment Committee to receive $200 every quarter for the purchase of literature.
Clearly, Motion B supersedes Motion A.  At that point, Motion A would be removed from the Book of Current Practices and only Motion B would remain, as that is the current practice.

Legacy of
Service
Oct. 2008

The Legacy of Service is the collected experience of the Committee Chairs and Area Officers.
