Impact Statement

Standing Rule 7(C) provides that the president will appoint a chairperson of the Resolutions Committee annually from among the five members of the Internal Editing Committee, each of whom is also appointed by the president with the advice and consent of the Board of Directors. The chairperson presides over all meetings of the Internal Editing Committee and full Resolutions Committee. Members of the Internal Editing Committee are appointed to three-year terms, and no member may serve more than two terms. Members of the Internal Editing Committee are eligible for appointment as chairperson in any year of their term.

If the amendment were adopted, appointment of the Resolutions Committee chairperson would also constitute election as a delegate to the Representative Assembly for all purposes except voting in elections for Association officers. Should the chair wish to have voting rights for officer elections, he or she could decline the ex officio credential and seek nomination and election for any local or state delegate position for which he or she were eligible.
