Committee Appointments

During every International Convention a number of Committees are formed to deal with issues within their purview and report back to the delegates for possible action. These committees include Audit & Finance, Constitution, Grievance, President’s Report, Resolutions, Rules and Special.

In order to be considered for a Committee appointment, Delegates must have submitted their Duplicate portion of the credential to the General Office by Friday July 16, 2021.

The Original portion of the credential is retained by the delegate and submitted at the time of final registration.


Submission of Resolutions

As per Article Three, Section 8 of the International Constitution and Bylaws:

"All resolutions or amendments to be submitted to the Convention shall be filed with the General Office in duplicate and in typewritten form at least fifteen (15) calendar days prior to the opening of the Convention, unless the same is submitted by or with the consent of the General Executive Board or by the unanimous consent of the delegates. However, if any such resolutions or amendments originate at a District Meeting during the week preceding the opening of the Convention, the same may be submitted before 6:00 p.m. of the Monday on which the Convention convenes.

None but duly accredited delegates to the Convention shall be eligible to introduce resolutions to the Convention. No resolution shall be introduced to the Convention unless approved by a majority of the Local’s Convention delegates. If a majority of any one Local’s delegation endorses a resolution, individual delegates from other Locals may endorse it without majority approval of their home Local’s delegation.”

Any resolutions that are submitted must therefore arrive in the General Office by Monday July 12, 2021 and must contain the signatures of the delegates.

Any resolutions submitted through District action will need to be submitted by the District Secretary via email to the General Secretary-Treasurer no later than 6:00 p.m. EDT on Monday July 26, 2021.
