I am the Admin and Personnel Officer for my Composite Squadron. We are looking at trying to put together a Squadron Handbook. We want to have it as a welcome guide and to be a general guide for each duty position. Does anybody else have a Squadron Handbook?

This could well fall into an OI, which has specific requirements for notification, retention, and even approval by
higher HQ in some cases.

Few units actually need this type of document and wind up just repeating what is already in national regs and
documents etc.

Welcome guides are one thing, and usually too general to be an issue, but anything that sets or canonizes policies,
SOPs, etc., needs to be reviewed with an eye towards inspections and whether it is worth the hassle.

Most unit staff positions should have continuity binders (electronic these days, of course, not physical binders),
and those don't usually fall under the general SOP / OI guidelines.

Before you develop a handbook, you have to determine what it is that you are going to contain and who the audience is for each item (don't say "The Squadron"....to whom does this page apply?).

To Eclipse's point, be cautious as to how far you go with making an SOP packet into a OI. But there's nothing wrong with listing out processes for your staff selections, scheduling review boards, general guidelines for facility use, training schedules, etc.
