What makes a good RMA resolution?
What tools are available to help members draft good resolutions?
- Resolutions should address issues that are provincial in scope and not focus on local issues.
- Resolutions should influence legislative changes that will impact rural municipalities.
- The issue identified in a resolution should clearly demonstrate that RMA is the best organization to advocate on moving it forward.
- The structure of resolutions is important. They must have a title, preamble, operative clause, and member background.
