Convention 2018 – Resolutions

 

On this page we will list all the resolutions as they come in. Resolutions that affect the Canons are due: Monday, August 13, 2018. All other resolutions are due: Monday, September 10, 2018. They should be sent to: resolutions@diopa.org using the format which can be found here. Questions about resolutions should be referred to the Chair of the Resolutions Committee, Karen Lash, at klash.klash@verizon.net.

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.
