Call for late resolutions

Resolution dea​​dline

No resolutions were submitted to CRNBC by the Feb. 9, 2018 deadline.

About resolutions

A resolution is a formal statement of a decision or expression of opinion put before or adopted by an assembly.

Resolutions are submitted to the CRNBC Annual General Meeting or submitted directly to the College Board. Resolutions are advisory-only.

The Board decides what action, if any, it will take on resolutions approved at the annual general meeting (AGM). The subject matter of the resolution should:​

  • Fall within the scope of the College’s mandate; and
  • Not be currently under considerations by the Board

Reminder: Resolutions can also be submitted directly to the Board anytime during the year.

Drafting a resolution

A resolution is composed of:


(Optional) Whereas Clauses
Describes the issue; leads logically to the “Resolved” clauses. 
Tip: You may prefer to provide background information and no “Whereas” clauses.


Resolved Clauses
Describes the action proposed or recommendation. There can be more than one “Resolved” clause, but they should be limited to items of significance.


Background Information
Include a description of the issue; a statement outlining how the resolution would change the issue; the rationale for the proposed course of action. 
Maximum one page for the background information.
Tip: Can be used to supplement the “Whereas” clause.

Presenting a resolution

The resolution contact person (or designate) presents the resolution at the AGM. After the resolution has been presented, it becomes the property of the assembly. At that point, an amendment to your resolution may be put forward. The assembly votes on whether to adopt the amendment or not.

Late resolutions

Late resolutions must be submitted to the Registrar/CEO prior to the commencement of the AGM for review; require a two-thirds vote by the assembly to be accepted for debate; and are subject to available agenda time.
