THE SOCIETY FOR THE STUDY OF SOCIAL PROBLEMS

2020 PROPOSED RESOLUTIONS

Compiled by Daina Cheyenne Harvey, SSSP Vice-President and Chair, Committee on Social Action on 6/1/20

All three proposed resolutions will be discussed during the Society’s Business Meeting on Friday, August 7 from 12:00pm-1:00pm (EDT). Thirty minutes will be allocated to a discussion in favor of or in opposition to all proposed resolutions. At this juncture, resolutions cannot be modified. The purpose of the discussion will be to seek clarification or to try to convince others to vote for or against the resolution. That discussion will be moderated by the Vice-President, with the assistance of the Executive Officer. Every effort will be made to allow time for the discussion of each resolution being considered, with equal time to those in support of and those in opposition to each resolution.

Immediately after the Society’s Annual Business Meeting, current members will vote online for or against each resolution, or abstain. The voting period will be two weeks. A resolution will pass if two-thirds of the members voting online by the deadline vote in favor of the resolution. The final results of the vote shall be reported to the CSA and the BOD, and published as early as possible on the Society’s website.

Note: You must be a current member to vote on the resolutions.  Click here to join or renew.  If you have any questions regarding the proposed resolutions, please contact Dr. Daina Cheyenne Harvey, SSSP Vice-President and Chair, Committee on Social Action at sssp2020moderator@gmail.com.
