Questions about resolutions should be referred to the Chair of the Resolutions Committee, Karen Lash, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
After the deadline, the Resolutions Committee will review the resolutions, contacting movers when necessary to clarify language, resolve duplicate resolutions, etc.
Pre-Convention meetings, which will include discussion of resolutions, will take place in each deanery. We ask that you please make an effort to attend a meeting (you may attend meetings in any deanery, not just your own).
Following the Pre-Convention meetings, members of the Resolutions Committee will meet to consider any changes in the resolutions suggested by the movers, as a result of the hearings, and to decide Committee’s recommendations to Convention.
Resolutions submitted after the 60-day deadline, due to an unforeseen emergency occurring after the deadline, and that are not submitted in response to a bishop’s address at Convention must be approved for consideration by a two-thirds vote of Convention.
A list of references, or sources cited, to be attached to each resolution.
Please remember that our canons call for a member of Convention (a clergy person or lay deputy) to introduce a resolution. A committee-sponsored resolution needs the name of a member such as a mover, as in the example below.
