OHS Manual

The OHS Manual is a one-stop source of all relevant information for OHS members on how the society operates, including the constitution and by-laws, key policies and guidelines for directors and for committee convenors.  Some of the documents are found on the public side of the OHS site while those marked * are in the members’ only section.  (NOTE:  items 4 and 5 in the index are different ways of presenting info on shows — could be on  the public site as in #4 or through the members’ site, which requires a landing page as per #5)
