Here are six Emerging Resolutions that are being discussed as to whether or not to include them in this year’s resolutions package. The membership has been asked to submit their votes by email.
Resolutions form our policies; they are the backbone of our organization that set our rules of engagement regarding advocacy for mitigating societal injustices. It is essential we allow adequate time for our membership to be diligent in reviewing past resolutions that require updating, and to research background information on current concerns.
Here are the dates that you need to be aware of:
- Resolutions and Updates to Resolutions to be received by the resolutions committee: February 22nd
- Resolutions will be studied by the committee and sent out to the membership March 1st
- Potential Amendments to resolutions must be received by April 15th as well as Emerging Issues
- End of April/Beginning of May Zoom meeting or email vote to decide if Emerging Issues are acceptable
- May 10th full AGM resolution packages to be sent to the membership to allow adequate time before the AGM
