How to Draft a Resolution

Drafting Resolutions

If you would like to draft a resolution, you can use this template. Resolutions should be submitted to the Internal Vice President (internal@ga.berkeley.edu) at least one week in advance of the Delegate Assembly meeting. At the meeting, they will be introduced for referral to committee by the Delegates. Especially timely resolutions may be referred to committee by the Executive Board if they are submitted at least two weeks in advance of the meeting at which they will be introduced, with a justification for why the resolution should be referred to committee by the Executive Board rather than at the next Delegate Assembly meeting.

For more information about types of resolutions, deadlines for submissions, and example language, you may review this presentation by our 2016-2017 Rules Officer, Andrew Stevens.
