Our DFLEC resolutions committee submitted a plan to the Executive Committee and it was approved. From now till November 20, 2017 our current Members may submit resolutions for consideration.  Voting members will ultimately vote on the resolutions.
We suggest that Members review the DFL Platform so as to understand what is there already.  Members may submit a resolution to the committee.   We’re asking that you review those that have already been submitted and try not to duplicate them.
Again, below is the link to the form on which to submit resolutions.  The form has been adapted to be in keeping with the changes in the resolution form the DFL will use this year.

How to write resolutions

Phil Adam, cochair of the DFL Platform Committee and Board member of the DFL Environmental Caucus, presented to us regarding how to effectively craft and submit resolutions to the DFL.    This is very timely since we are presently taking resolutions for the DFLEC to consider.
