HCF Facility Operating Guidelines

2018-08-14Toby Rice

Aloha,

We have published our new facility general SOP which we are calling the "Facility Operating Guidelines."

This document contains all of the foundational policies, procedures, and ethics established by HCF. All home and visiting controllers must make themselves aware of this document and abide by the contents therein.

Some of the major items can be found on the following pages:

Controlling Minima - 9
Conflict Resolution and Membership Termination - 10
Code of Conduct - 12
Visiting Controller Policies - 14
Controller Leave - 15
Training - 16

Again, please make yourself familiar with all of the contents of this document.

Please let me know if you see any typos or have any questions or comments.
This is the first of several more HCF publications to come. As always, if there is ever any doubt as to what procedure or policy is used on a controversial or confusing subject, you can get the answers from me until a written response is posted.

The FOG will be posted on our website under "Downloads" shortly. Until then, you can find the document here:
