The IGS Handbook is a dynamic document that continues to grow and evolve. Initiated by the founding Secretary Guy Masenaux and the Vice President at the time, J.P. Giroud, the document has since been amended, expanded, and updated in a series of edits. These editorial updates were conducted by Presidents Allen, Rowe, Jones, Bathurst, and Cazzuffi, with the support and execution of the Secretaries W. Voskamp 1990 – 1994, P. Stevenson 1994 – 2010, and L. Carbone 2022 – 2026.
The Handbook presents the IGS Bylaws, the IGS Code of Conduct, Guidance, and draft bylaws for chapters, policy, and procedures for organizing conferences and other events. It also includes a number of additional items, which are evident in the table of contents. The IGS Handbook is available for viewing by IGS Members only.
