Format for Writing Resolutions
The following is the modernized form for writing resolutions,
utilizing simplified Parliamentary Rules.
- Title of resolution
- The first paragraph is a statement of fact, finding
- The second paragraph states what action should be
taken and by whom. (Please identify who should take the action.
Is this something that AACD should do or the NRCS, ANRC, etc.)
- The third paragraph gives additional background
information to support the resolution.
- Area President ________________________(Area
- For further information contact__________(name,
address, phone/FAX, email)
- Signatures of District Directors voting "aye".
Because the duties, responsibilities, and extent of workload of a
district secretary vary by district, change in classification should be
made for secretaries whose duties more closely resemble those of an
AACD supports reclassifying the Secretary position(s) by district to
reflect workload/ability. This would allow some secretaries to be
re-classified to Administrative Assistant positions.
Explanation: Such duties would include office management,
administering numerous accounting ledgers, management of special
projects administered by the district (i.e. tree sales, booster clubs,
trees for schools, etc.) Obviously, this would not include every
district, but should be determined on a case-by-case basis as it is with
Soil Conservation Technicians. Currently they have different job
classifications to reflect workload activities.
