Pleaseclick hereto access the resolution discussion. You will need to log-in with your CMA web account.
After testimony closes, the resolutions and all the testimony will be forwarded to the appropriate CMA council for consideration. Member testimony and feedback will be considered by the councils as they make policy recommendations to the Board of Trustees.
If you are interested in submitting a resolution for consideration in the fourth quarter, the submission deadline is July 8, 2016. You are encouraged, however, to submit well in advance of the deadline to ensure that your policy idea is considered promptly.
