WHAT IS A RESOLUTION? A resolution is a written proposal that identifies an issue affecting chapters or members and requests action by the Fraternity to address the issue. In essence, a resolution serves as a call for action. However, a resolution cannot cannot require action or modify the Fraternity's Constitution or Bylaws. WHO CAN SUBMIT A RESOLUTION? A resolution may be submitted by any Convention delegate eligible to vote on Fraternity business, as defined in the Constitution (i.e., collegiate or alumnae chapter archon, chapter key advisor, standing committee chairman, etc.). Collegiate chapter delegates must be from a chapter in good standing to submit a resolution. HOW IS A RESOLUTION CONSTRUCTED? A resolution first provides background information or a basis for the issue, and is followed by the requested action. In addition, the members of the resolutions committee will be happy to assist in the drafting of your resolution after submission.

The deadline to submit resolutions is Friday, June 10 at 11:59 PM PT. This will give the committee adequate time to assist delegates with the preparation and format of proposed resolutions.
