While the principal means for determining League policy is through the League’s eight standing policy committees and the League board of directors, the organization also accepts Annual Conference Resolutions, which should address areas not already covered by League policy.
Annual Conference Resolutions may be introduced by individual city officials or cities, League departments, divisions, policy committees, the board of directors, or by petition. League policy adopted through an Annual Conference Resolution can be changed only by a subsequent Annual Conference Resolution, not by the board of directors.
Resolutions to be considered at the 2014 Annual Conference must be received no later than midnight on July 5.
The membership voted to amend the League’s bylaws in 2012 to require that resolutions submitted to the General Assembly be concurred on by five cities or by city officials from at least five or more cities. The new amendment applied as of the 2013 General Assembly. More information about guidelines for complying with this new requirement can be found on the League’s website.
Resolutions may be sent to:
