IASB resolutions deadline is June 22

IASB member districts have a little more than a month to prepare and submit resolutions for consideration by the 2016 Delegate Assembly. Resolution forms were mailed to superintendents and board presidents in early April, with a deadline to submit proposals to the Association by June 22.

The Delegate Assembly is held each November at the Joint Annual Conference in Chicago and serves as the policy-setting body of the Association. Active member boards may submit proposals for new IASB resolutions, amendments to existing position statements, reaffirmations of existing position statements, or belief statements.

The Resolutions Committee, consisting of one elected member from each of the 21 IASB divisions, will meet on Aug. 5 to review submissions and recommend either approval or disapproval of the measures. Appeals to Resolutions Committee decisions are accepted if submitted in writing at least eight days prior to the Nov. 19 Delegate Assembly.

A fillable 2016 resolution form can also be downloaded from the IASB website. For additional information, contact Connie Crowder at ext. 1132.
