The Fall 2012 order paper, as determined by the Resolutions Committee, and the resolutions submitted for consideration at the upcoming convention are attached for your review. Please notify Tasha Blumenthal at tasha@aamdc.com of any errors or omissions as soon as possible.

There are 28 resolutions that will be presented at the Fall 2012 Convention and the AAMDC encourages all member municipalities to review them prior to the resolution session on November 14 to ensure the process moves along smoothly.

The AAMDC’s resolution process policy identifies resolution types and guidelines and the process involved in the resolution session itself.  The submission and consideration of any emergent resolutions are also outlined in the policy.  It is the role of the AAMDC Resolutions Committee to determine if emergent resolutions meet the definition outlined. 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 700).

To access the resolution process policy, login to the AAMDC website and click here.
