Annual Bar Convention resolution meeting set


Pursuant to Standing Board Policy 11.21, any member of The Florida Bar may offer for possible consideration at the Annual Convention any resolution to the Bar’s Executive Committee, acting as the Resolutions Committee. A meeting of that committee has been set for 5 p.m. May 27 at the Westin Key West Resort and Marina in Key West.

According to the policy, resolutions must be submitted to the executive director at Bar headquarters in Tallahassee by May 3. The Executive (Resolutions) Committee will then approve, disapprove, or make no recommendation with respect to any proposed resolution and shall state the specific reason(s) for its action. The proposer will then be advised of the action and may present any disapproved resolution to the General Assembly at the Annual Convention of The Florida Bar (June 25 at the Boca Raton Resort & Club) if the member requests publication of the general nature of the resolution in the next issue of The Florida Bar News following notice from the committee.

No resolution may be proposed at the Annual Convention unless this procedure is followed, unless it concerns a matter arising or developing subsequent to the meeting of the Resolutions Committee, and the request is approved by the Board of Governors or the Executive Committee.
