facility use policies

Policies define the goals of our organization and provides guidance for our guests. These policies address things such as general building rules, pets, parking, smoking, alcohol consumptions, etc. Formal, written policies and procedures improve overall organizational performance by keeping everyone “on the same page” when it comes to expectations and issues. While organizations can operate without written policies and procedures, operations tend to be much more efficient and effective with them in place.
