Executive Decisions on Referred Resolutions

At its November meeting, the UBCM Executive made decisions on resolutions that did not make it to the floor of the 2013 Convention.

In accordance with the Conference Rules & Procedures for Handling Resolutions, the resolutions not debated by the Convention were submitted to the UBCM Executive for consideration. This included resolutions B123 through B141, as well as resolution B143 – twenty resolutions. Additionally, six resolutions were referred directly to the UBCM Executive by the delegates at Convention, and four resolutions requesting specific UBCM action were endorsed by the membership.

Conveyance of Endorsed Resolutions

The resolutions endorsed by the UBCM Executive will be conveyed to the provincial government, federal government, or relevant organization. UBCM will request the government or organization to consider and comment on each resolution, and when responses are received, UBCM will share the responses with the sponsors of resolutions, and post the responses to the UBCM website.

Referral to Committee

The UBCM Executive decided to refer several resolutions to its working committees. Each committee to which a resolution has been referred will incorporate the resolution into its work plan for 2013-2014. This may include further research or advocacy, or monitoring the evolution of a particular issue.

The committees report on their work to the full UBCM Executive, so members interested in a particular referred resolution can follow the committee's work by watching for the summaries of Executive meetings, published in The Compass following each quarterly meeting of the UBCM Executive.
