I am happy to be able to serve with several wonderful colleagues on the AAAL Resolutions Committee. Previously, this committee dealt with multiple types of resolutions, including those related to the internal governance and operations of AAAL, on the one hand, and those taking a stand on external issues or events that could have important social or political consequences, on the other. Going forward, the latter type of statement will now be handled by a separate AAAL committee. The Resolutions Committee is authorized to handle content resolutions dealing only with AAAL-internal matters, such as changes to the organization’s Bylaws, Standing Rules, or procedures. Non-controversial courtesy resolutions can also be put forward through the Resolutions Committee. These are resolutions intended to offer congratulations or thanks to individuals for AAAL-related service, or to comment on or affirm support for current decisions, policies, or procedures internal to AAAL. Members of AAAL who are interested in submitting one of these types of resolution for consideration by the Resolutions Committee should follow the procedures described in the Standing Rules. In order to be considered for adoption at the 2017 AAAL Business Meeting, a draft of the resolution will need to be submitted to me via email attachment by January 2, 2017.
