The operations manual is designed as a supplement to the By-laws and documents procedures and conventions, some of which are board-approved as required by the By-laws.  The manual is used to guide the day-to-day operation of the Society.  The Society depends on its successful operation through the work of many volunteers, the staff of the Administrative Office, the work of the Editor of Social Problems as well as the Editorial Office and Advisory Editors, and those who contribute articles and time to its production, and the work of the press that contracts with us to publish Social Problems and perform subscription and permission tasks.  This manual has a section on the operation of each part of the organization.
