Members of the Resolutions Committee will introduce the resolutions at each of the three pre-convention meetings in January. There will be hearings on all resolutions (except those on the Consent Calendar, unless removed) at the convention on Friday, January 27, 2012. The resolutions will be presented for deputy action on Saturday, January 28, 2012.
Consent Calendar: It is recognized that certain resolutions may not require full debate prior to action by Convention. Accordingly, the Committee on Resolutions may propose that certain resolutions be included on a "Consent Calendar". Exclusion of any resolution on the Consent Calendar requires agreement of any three congregations to remove it, and the Secretary of Convention must receive exclusion requests before the start of the first business session in writing, signed by at least two lay deputies from each of three congregations and at least three clergy listed on the roll of Clergy entitled to vote in the Convention. Any resolution included on the "Consent Calendar" shall not be subject to amendment or debate, except that the sponsoring deputy or his/her designee may speak to the resolution for a period not to exceed one minute.
