2018 Resolutions (Updated October 24, 2018)

Download Resolutions Now; Learn More About Submissions Process

We have two types of resolution that come before a Convention. The first type, an action resolution, asks for action action generally by others. The second type, a courtesy resolution, expresses courtesy gratitude to those that Convention feels a need to express its honor.

The deadline for submitting an action resolution to the upcoming Convention passed on September 1, 2018. However, courtesy resolutions can still be brought before Convention, and other types of other resolutions may be added to the Convention agenda.

View this video from Resolutions Committee Chair Anne Clark Brown to learn more about the resolutions process and to get an overview of the following action resolutions that have been submitted for consideration:
