How to Write a Resolution

One avenue of access for congregations, conferences, synod organizational units, and voting members to address issues and propose a plan for action is the resolution. Resolutions help organize the work of the assembly by clarifying important issues or concerns. Resolutions are first reviewed by the reference and counsel committee, which will make recommendations to the assembly to facilitate its work, but the resolutions belong to the assembly and may be amended, rejected,  or adopted after consideration by the voting members. Resolutions may be submitted until 45 days prior to the first day the assembly meets.  Please read the Writing a Resolution Guide 2021

For the 2021 Synod Assembly, resolutions must be in the synod office by Wednesday, April 7, 2021. Please send resolutions to:
