Letter from Pat Harrison
Standing Committee Chairs
With less than a year until we meet in Helsinki, we need to be thinking about resolutions which will be put to Congress. I should like to receive these as early as possible so that the Resolutions Committee will have time to look at them and perhaps suggest appropriate changes or combination with other resolutions on similar issues.
Before submitting a resolution, you should look at past resolutions and decide whether your submission has already been covered by previous decisions of Congress, because if they have, they are already BPWI policy (http://www.bpw-international.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=category&layout=blog&id=220&Itemid=129〈=en)
It has been determined that only resolutions which address BPWI core issues will be accepted.
I also want to remind those Affiliate Presidents and Standing Committee Chairs, whose committee presented a resolution which was approved in Mexico, that many of your resolutions included a clause to report back to Congress in Helsinki on the results of the resolution. I should like you to report to me and I can then incorporate the results in my report to Congress.
I shall be at the North American Regional Congress and the Asia Pacific Regional Congress so if you wish to speak to me about any resolutions I shall be happy to meet with you.
