The AAMDC’s resolution deadline for the Spring 2017 Convention was Monday, February 13, 2017. Any resolutions being brought forward after this date will be considered emergent.  

As per the AAMDC’s resolution process policy, an emergent resolution is defined as a resolution submitted to the AAMDC after the resolution deadline that deals with a subject or problem that has arisen subsequent to the resolution deadline. The AAMDC Resolutions Committee will meet prior to the resolutions session at the spring convention to review any resolutions submitted after the resolutions deadline to determine if they meet the definition of emergent.

If the resolution is deemed to be emergent in nature, it will come to the convention floor through the appropriate process. The member bringing forward the emergent resolution must, at their own expense, provide copies for voting members in attendance (minimum 600). Members submitting an emergent resolution are encouraged to bring 600 copies of their resolution to convention for distribution in the event that the resolutions committee deems the resolution to meet the definition of emergent. The AAAMDC is not responsible for copying or distributing emergent resolutions on behalf of sponsoring municipalities.

Any members who intend to bring forward an emergent resolution for consideration are encouraged to advise a member of the AAMDC Resolutions Committee or Policy Analyst Tasha Blumenthal at tasha@aamdc.com as soon as possible. 

Committee members are as follows:

  • Chair – Tom Burton, AAMDC District 4 Director, tburton@aamdc.com or 780.512.1558
  • District 1 – Ben Elfring, MD of Taber
  • District 2 – Pat Alexander, Clearwater County
