Call for Resolutions

It is once again time to gather your input on ideas and issues of importance to the membership of CAPCSD. If you individually, or in concert with colleagues from other member programs, have ideas or issues that you believe the Board of Directors should address, please formulate and submit a resolution for consideration. Resolutions may be submitted by “…members of the Executive Board, standing committees, Working Groups, member institutions or individual representatives of member institutions.

The Process

  • Proposed resolutions are accepted throughout the year.
  • They are considered by the Board of Directors for a vote.
  • If 1/3 of the Board supports the resolution it will be presented during a membership business meeting.
  • Ballot is sent to program directors for a vote (one vote per program).
  • If the resolution passes it will be acted on by the Board.
