The deadline to submit resolutions for the 2013 ACEP Council meeting is July 15. College members who would like the Council to consider a resolution, which includes background information and a proposed course of action, must submit the material by email (preferred), FAX or postal service. Each resolution must be sponsored by at least two College members. In the case of sponsorship by a chapter or section, a letter of endorsement from the president or chair of the sponsoring body must accompany the resolution.
When writing a resolution, there is a format to follow. Guidelines can be found at www.acep.org, in the Leadership area of the About Us section, along with a helpful article, “Make a Difference: Write that Council Resolution.” Receipt of resolutions will be acknowledged by email or phone. If you have questions, please contact Sonja Montgomery at the ACEP headquarters at 800-798-1822, ext. 3202. The 2013 resolutions to be considered will be publicly posted 30 days before the Council meeting, scheduled for Oct. 12-13, prior to ACEP13 in Seattle.
