  • Reports will be part of the historical record of the North Georgia Conference.
  • In preparing reports, ask these questions to determine what to include or 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?
  • Make reports accurate and complete but as concise as feasible in consideration of your purpose, your readers’ time and the space limitations.
