          Policies and Procedures

          Skip Navigation LinksHome > About BPA > About BPA > Policies and Procedures


          BPA’s governing documents, policies, and procedures as approved by the Board of Trustees are available to BPA members and advisors.


          The Business Professionals of America Policies and Procedures Manual was created to set forth methods of business operation for, and the relationship between Business Professionals of America, Inc. and the unincorporated national student and alumni organization, Business Professionals of America. The manual is not made available in print as it is regularly being reviewed and updated based on questions and feedback received by the BPA Board of Trustees, however, it is provided as a PDF download that can be printed by individuals if they wish. While the most recent manual is available here, check back from time to time for an updated version.

          In addition to BPA’s Policies and Procedures Manual, the Board of Trustees has provided an electronic version of the organization’s Strategic and Long Range Plan. Reviewed regularly by the SLRP Committee, this document includes measurable, realistic, attainable but challenging, long-term goals and strategies for the organization.  This document is made available to communicate the organization’s goals, the actions needed to achieve those goals and critical elements developed during the planning phase.
