The Standing Rules are additions to the WSFS parliamentary practice rules (Robert's Rules of Order) used in the conduct of the Business Meeting. The version here is the Standing Rules as they stood after the Business Meeting at the current year's Worldcon. These rules apply to the following year's WSFS Business Meeting.
The Resolutions and Rulings of Continuing Effect are resolutions (BM-) passed at the current and past Business Meetings and rulings (CH-) of the WSFS Business Meeting Chair (including rulings overturned on appeal) that may affect the conduct of, or otherwise be relevant to, subsequent Business Meetings. The version here is the Resolutions and Rulings of Continuing Effect as they stood after the Business Meeting at the current year's Worldcon. Also included are any actions taken by the WSFS Mark Protection Committee (MPC-) that may have an ongoing effect. Some repealed or deprecated resolutions and rulings are shown in strikethrough type.
