Those who would like to submit resolutions for consideration to the Baptist Convention of Maryland/Delaware Annual Meeting, Nov. 12-13, 2017, may send them to:
10255 Old Columbia Road
Columbia, MD 21046-1716
The BCM/D Constitution and Bylaws state that “only resolutions presented to the resolutions committee at least 45 days in advance of the annual meeting will be considered by the committee before the first session. Other resolutions may be referred to the committee by the general body.”
If, in the opinion of the President, a messenger has a copy-ready master of a resolution with justifiable reason for not meeting the 45-day rule, it may be referred to the Resolutions Committee by the assembly at the first session. The action should follow the form: (Petitioner) “Mr. President, I request the consideration of a resolution concerning (subject).”; whereupon the President immediately puts the question without debate, “(Messenger) requests the previlege of having a late resolution considered, all who favor instructing the Resolutions Committee to review this resolution for consideration…(vote).”
All proposed resolutions must be received via email or dropped off at the Baptist Network Center to Iris White by Wednesday, Sept. 27, 2017.
