2023 Resolutions

We have three (3) resolutions being presented to our membership this year at Convention. These resolutions are listed below, as well you can download the full document with background here: Click here or on the picture to the right.

Thank you to the branches who proposed these motions. And thank you, also, to those branches who seconded the motion. There is a lot of thought, research and discussion that goes into forming a resolution and kudos to those members and branches who took the necessary time and effort to present these for Convention.

Please take some time in your upcoming branch meetings to go over the resolutions and discuss them with your branch members.  Your branch delegate will then be able to bring your branch’s views forward to Convention where there will be further opportunity for discussion.

As you go through the resolutions and think about them, some other thoughts may come to you regarding resolutions for next year’s Convention.  Please take the time to note down those thoughts to work on for next year.
