Resolutions Deadline June 30

The annual resolutions cycle is the main forum for UBCM policy-making, providing an opportunity for member local governments and member First Nations to express concerns, share experiences and develop united positions. Area associations considered a number of resolutions from BC local governments at their spring meetings. UBCM has received the resolutions endorsed by area associations, and will include them in the resolutions process for the 2017 UBCM Annual Convention.

If necessary, UBCM members may submit resolutions subsequent to the Area Association meetings directly to UBCM. All resolutions must be endorsed by a Board or Council prior to being provided to UBCM. The submission deadline is Friday, June 30.

Drafting Resolutions

Staff and elected officials are strongly encouraged to follow the writing guidelines and sample resolution on the UBCM website. A plain and concise resolution is easier to understand, increasing the likelihood that the membership will endorse it. Clear resolutions net clearer responses from other orders of government or other organizations.
