Call for fall 2012 Board of Governors resolutions
The deadline for submitting new resolutions to be heard at the Fall 2012 Board of Governors Meeting is Monday, May 21, 2012. Initiating a resolution provides ACP members an opportunity to focus attention at the ACP national level on a particular issue or topic that concerns them. When drafting a resolution, don't forget to consider how well it fits within ACP's Mission and Goals. In addition, be sure to use the College's Strategic Plan to guide you when proposing a resolution topic. Members must submit resolutions to their Governor and/or chapter council. A resolution becomes a resolution of the chapter once the chapter council approves it.
In accordance with the ACP Board of Governors Resolutions Process, resolutions should clearly distinguish the action requested within its resolved clause(s) as either a policy resolve (“Resolved that ACP policy…”), or a directive, which requests action/study on an issue (“Resolved that the Board of Regents…”). If more than one action is proposed, each should have its own resolved clause. Please contact your Governor if you have any questions regarding the resolution format.
The Board of Governors votes on new resolutions which are then presented to the Board of Regents for action. Members are encouraged to use the Electronic Resolutions System (ERS) to research the status of past resolutions before proposing a new resolution. Visit your chapter website and link to the ERS under the “Advocacy” heading.
