  • The first paragraph is a statement of fact, finding or argument.
  • 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.
  • Submitted by__________________________(District)__________________
  • Area President ________________________(Area )____________________
  • For further information contact__________(name, address, phone/FAX, email)
  • Signatures of District Directors voting "aye".

Sample Resolution


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 administrative assistant.

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.
