Guiding Documents

Articles of Incorporation

This document represents our relationship and defines our "identity" as a non-profit with the State of California. Changing these documents would represent a major shift in the nature and mission of the BSC, and would require approval from the State.


This document is our highest-level policy document, which lays down the fundamentals of our organization and how it functions. By-Laws do things like lay out what powers board and the committees and executive have, and define the way that our meetings and voting and things like that work. These also don’t change very often, and are designed to be relatively constant and somewhat abstract.

Policy Directory

These is where the bulk of our actual policies are, and these are the ones that we typically change or add to on board. If you are creating a new policy, chances are it belongs in one of the sections of the Policy Directory. The policy directory is divided into seven sections, enumerated by roman numerals.

Personnel Code (PerCode)

The Personnel Code is a set of policies governing our employment practices.

Employee Association Contract

The contract that applies to members of the Employee Association.

Member Contract

The contract that all applicants have to sign to become members of the BSC.
