Please refer to the Administrative Handbook for the information that needs to appear in such a permission (which includes explicitly stating that this is a permission to conflict, indicating both the Society name and the name used outside the Society for all individuals mentioned). Please see Section IV.C.3 of the Administrative Handbook for discussions of the forms these permissions must take and Appendix D for standard letters of permission to conflict.)
