Below you will find a link to the 2018 Voting Delegates' Guide for the Annual Business Meeting.  This guide contains the report of the Resolutions Committee as well as amendments and rebuttals received by the September 21 deadline.

Amendments and Late Resolutions

To help us prepare for the Annual Business Meeting, if you plan to submit either a late resolution or an amendment to a resolution from the floor, please select the appropriate form below and follow the instructions located at the top of the form in advance of the meeting. While a late resolution or amendment may be submitted at the rostrum any time during the Annual Business Meeting, it will make the meeting run more efficiently if late resolutions and amendments are received in advance. They may be submitted, in writing, prior to the meeting via email to Danielle Grasso at

Amendments to resolutions will need to be moved and seconded from the floor to be considered.  A "majority of those voting" is necessary to approve an amendment.  Late resolutions may be considered at the business meeting under "Other Business." At that time a motion to suspend the bylaws for the purpose of considering a particular resolution may be offered. A motion to suspend the bylaws is required to be moved, seconded and adopted by a two-thirds vote for every resolution submitted from the floor. Once the motion to suspend the bylaws is adopted, the new resolution can be moved and seconded, and a simple majority of those present and voting is required for approval. If the motion to suspend the bylaws fails, the resolution cannot be considered.

If your district wishes to share copies of a late resolution, amendment or any other materials with the voting delegates, it is the responsibility of the district to provide 300 copies of the document.  A district representative will be allowed into the room where the business meeting will be held from 7:00 - 7:30 a.m. on the morning of the business meeting to distribute documents.

If you have any questions please contact Danielle Grasso at or at 518-783-0200

Please note, delegates will be provided with a light breakfast on the floor.
