Call for Resolutions

The Resolutions Committee calls on CSHP Saskatchewan Branch members for the submission of resolutions to the Executive Committee.

Resolutions are intended to present a point of view of the author. They should reflect standards of practice, acknowledgments, political viewpoints, etc. Resolutions are received by the Executive Committee and then presented to the membership at the Annual General Meeting for a vote.

If you are interested in submitting a resolution, but are unsure of the format for writing one, you may contact the Resolutions Committee Chair to obtain samples of past resolutions or view the guidelines below.
NOTE: Resolutions from the floor at the AGM will not be accepted.

The deadline for submitting resolutions for the 2017 CSHP SK Branch AGM is September 30, 2017.

Forward resolutions to:

Jacqueline Myers
Resolutions Chair, President Elect, CSHP Saskatchewan Branch

Guidelines for Developing a Resolution

  • All resolutions must be submitted to the Resolutions Committee by the closing date. Resolutions will not be accepted from the floor at the Annual General Meeting.
  • All resolutions must be consistent with the aims and objectives of the Society.
  • A resolution should deal with only one subject and must be in relation to an external issue the branch would like to influence outside of the society.
  • A resolution should document all positive aspects of the subject, give reasons for support, and respond to any foreseeable negative aspects that might influence the decision.
  • A resolution should be factual and include the proposed disposition of the motion, if approved (i.e. a notice to change the Bylaws of the Society, refer to a committee, inform a department of government).
  • A resolution should present a positive position to assist in resolving a negative situation (i.e. a resolution should not be entirely negative or specifically critical and a person or group should not be named in it).
