Resolutions

Be it resolved…

WELCA can make a difference in so many ways and writing a resolution is one of them.  Resolutions call us to action as an organization, give us strength to facilitate change as a group, and empower us to make a difference.  Resolutions will be read and acted upon at our Fall Gathering business meetings.  Your resolution brings issues that are important to you, your congregational unit, and community to the attention of all women in attendance.  Actions taken may include asking all women to take them back to their own units or even sending it on to the next Triennial Gathering in the form of a memorial.  According to the Women of the ELCA website: “Memorials and resolutions can direct future actions of all expression of our organization.”  The process starts with you…

 Resolutions need to be submitted prior to the Fall Gathering - deadline is October 15

 Instructions for writing a resolution, a blank resolution form, and a short sample are available on the FL-BA SWO’s website at www.flwelca.com.  There is still time to draft a resolution, get your Congregational Unit’s approval, and submit before the October 15, 2019 deadline.

Resolutions should be sent to the Chair of the Resolutions Committee, Diane Spicer by email at dlsic@juno.com or by the postal service to Diane Spicer, 5601 NW Scepter Dr, Port St Lucie, FL 34983.  Or you may e-mail the form to the SWO President Tracy Moffatt at tracymoffatt@aol.com
