Resolution submission deadline is Sept. 10

July 28, 2021

The deadline to submit resolutions for consideration by the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina’s (BSCNC) Committee on Resolutions and Memorials is quickly approaching.

In accordance with state convention bylaws, proposed resolutions must be submitted to the committee in writing no later than Sept. 10 prior to the annual meeting at which the resolution would be considered. A resolution has been traditionally defined as an expression of sentiment, opinion or concerns of a voting body, as compared to a motion, which calls for a specific action.

“Resolutions are an important aspect of convention life,” said resolutions committee chairman Joel Stephens, who also serves as associate pastor of discipleship at Hopewell Baptist Church in Monroe. “They allow the convention to clearly articulate where we stand collectively on important issues. The Committee on Resolutions and Memorials welcomes submissions of resolutions, and we will prayerfully consider each one.”

Proposed resolutions are preferred to be received by mail that is addressed to the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina, ATTN: Penny Cozadd, 205 Convention Drive, Cary, NC 27511. They may also be sent by email to [email protected].

The Committee on Resolutions and Memorials reviews all properly submitted resolutions and presents all appropriate resolutions to the convention for its consideration during the annual meeting. State convention bylaws authorize the committee to reword resolutions for clarity, combine similar resolutions into one resolution, or reject resolutions that have been previously addressed or those that are inappropriate.

The committee is directed by state convention bylaws to notify individuals submitting resolutions of its decision no later than Sept. 30.

Messengers whose resolutions are rejected by the committee may seek to present the resolution for consideration by messengers at a convention meeting provided that certain requirements are met as outlined in the state convention bylaws.
