Attached is a copy of the resolution form, which should be used when submitting resolutions. Please return written resolution forms to the Victoria Area Office by 5:00 p.m. on February 24, 2020 so the Local Executive can review them prior to the meeting. Additionally, you can bring resolutions with you to the March 5, 2020 meeting. Final call for resolutions will be at the March 5, 2020 meeting and all resolutions will be voted on at the meeting.
