PSITE Manual of Operations

For the past five years, I have reported the many activities and accomplishments of PSITE, but I am proud to say that one of the most important accomplishments that we have just finished is the PSITE Manual of Operations which was launched last March 1, 2014 during the PSITE Natcon2014 in Baguio City.

The purpose of this document is to provide a clear statement of the vision, mission, and values of PSITE.  This document provides the framework that defines the organization’s policies and processes. It also states the officers’ roles, expectations, and routine operating guidelines.

The compiled policies and procedures have been based on PSITE Articles of Incorporation and amended by-Laws, PSITE Board resolutions, minutes of meetings, and existing practices. It is expected that all officers and members will adopt this manual and become familiar with the information it contains.  It is expected that these  policies will be reviewed and revised as needed by the National Board of Trustees.
