RESOLUTIONS INSTRUCTIONS

THE RESOLUTIONS PROCESS

A resolution submitted to the NAACP Resolutions Committee is a formal request of the NAACP’s Annual Convention to change the programs or policies of the NAACP. The resolution should be clear, concise, and specific. The substance should be well researched and must have been approved by a majority vote of the sponsoring Unit. Resolutions having been approved by this method must be signed by the unit President and the unit Secretary and transmitted to the President and Chief Executive Officer of the NAACP at the National office by May 1 in order to be considered by the Resolutions Committee.

Only resolutions which are recommended for concurrence by the Resolutions Committee will be put to discussion and a vote during the Legislative Session of the NAACP’s Annual Convention. The Committee will review and may alter any resolution received in this process, in order to ensure that it comports with the Constitution and Bylaws and that the substance is new.

Resolutions adopted by the delegates at Convention must be submitted to the Board of Directors for ratification at their October Board meeting. Resolutions submitted for consideration by the Resolutions Committee become the province of the committee and are subject to recommendations or referral as the Committee deems necessary. Resolutions which are approved by the Resolutions Committee, the delegates at the Legislative Session of the Convention and the Board of Directors become official NAACP policies or programs. The adopted resolutions are published in The Crisis magazine.
