RESOLUTIONS ARE NOW AVAILABLE. We appreciate your patience with us as we worked to make these available to you. Because of the inclement weather experienced throughout the southeast, we had to extend our resolution deadline in order to make sure that all delegations had equal opportunity to submit a resolution. We were still receiving resolutions at the end of last week and we appreciate all of the hard work that went into these documents! Please see the Committees Page or click the following links to view the resolutions for this year's conference:
