Guidelines Regarding Content

To facilitate the development of a concise, complete, accurate, and professional publication and to be effective stewards of funds provided for printing, the Journal Handbook Committee has developed the following guidelines:       
• Your report will be a part of the historical record of the North Georgia Conference
• In preparing your report, ask these questions to determine what to include and what to exclude: What purpose does this report serve for my readers? Have I included ONLY the material essential to that purpose, or am I distracting readers with unessential information? Are the facts pertinent, reliable, accurate, complete, and current?
• When writing your report, make your readers’ job as easy as possible.  Make your report accurate and complete but as concise as feasible in consideration of your purpose and your readers’ time.
