General Information:

These event teams will not become separate entities of WAR. We want to maintain the larger organization. They must stay involved in main group.

All ideas and plans for functions and events must be submitted to the Regional Leader and then they will present it to the president of WAR for final approval.

The reason for this is to mitigate confusion and conflicts with possible donors and sponsors, and to better assist WAR members with any issues that may arise.

Any and all negotiations with companies or individuals must be pre-approved by Sheri Smith before contact is made.

Professionalism is key in this business and any acts that may shine a negative light on WAR will not be tolerated.
