Resolutions must be submitted to RMA by Friday, October 18, 2019 to be added to the Fall 2019 resolution order paper
With district meetings approaching, RMA is reminding members of the important role resolutions play in guiding the association’s advocacy efforts. To maximize these efforts, having well-written resolutions that are clear, concise, and include pertinent information is essential.
What makes a good RMA resolution?
- Resolutions should address issues that are provincial in scope and not focus on local issues.
- Resolutions should influence legislative or operational 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.
