Annual Conference Resolutions Due by July 20

May 2, 2013
Policy development is an integral part of the League’s Annual Conference. 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.
The League will begin receiving resolutions on May 6. Resolutions to be considered at the 2013 Annual Conference must be received no later than midnight on Saturday, July 20.
Please Note: The membership voted to amend the League’s bylaws and 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 votes were canvassed by the League board of directors at its April 25meeting. The amendment received the required two-thirds vote of the member cities voting, and this new requirement applies to resolutions submitted to 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:
