EMERGENT Proposed Advocacy Resolutions
As the deadline to submit Proposed Advocacy Resolutions for the 2020 AGM was January 15, 2020, and much has changed in education since that time (new funding model, Covid-19 pandemic, online learning), ASCA Member school councils may have new, or EMERGENT, Proposed Advocacy Resolutions to present for consideration.
EMERGENT Resolutions definition: Pertaining to an education issue that arose, or developed, after the Resolutions submission deadline.
In light of this, the ASCA Board of Directors has approved a new process to support Emergent Proposed Advocacy Resolutions for the October 17th Regular General Meeting consideration. Emergent Proposed Advocacy Resolutions may be submitted up to 14 days prior to the Regular General Meeting; October 3, 2020.
If deemed eligible (after review by ASCA staff), they would be placed on the Order Paper/Agenda for the meeting, and available/posted for the membership seven (7) days prior to the meeting, by October 10, 2020.
If the Emergent deadline is missed, or if the Emergent Proposed Advocacy Resolution is previously deemed ‘ineligible’, an ASCA Member School Council could choose to bring their Emergent Proposed Advocacy Resolution to the Regular General Meeting, fully completed in writing, for ruling by the RGM Chair or designate for placement on the Order Paper.
If the RGM Chair or designate rules that the Emergent Proposed Advocacy Resolution should not be placed on the Order Paper, the sponsoring ASCA Member School Council is given the opportunity to appeal to the Voting Delegates to have it placed on the Order Paper with 66% approval.
EMERGENT Proposed Advocacy Resolution Submission Form for ASCA General Meeting 2020 Deadline to submit to be included in the meeting package was October 3, 2020
