2012 Proposed Resolutions

SSSP resolutions constitute an important opportunity for our scholar-activist membership to publicly declare its sentiments, thereby creating a channel for greater visibility and more direct influence upon various “publics” (e.g. fellow activists, scholars, students, voters, groups, policy- and decision-makers).  All SSSP members are invited to review the proposed 2012 resolutions and participate in the resolutions process.

New resolution guidelines were adopted in order to promote and facilitate wider discussion prior to formal consideration at the 2012 Business Meeting [Friday, August 17 from 9:50am – 11:00am, Imperial Ballroom].  To that end, please review the five proposed resolutions.  An open forum to discuss the proposed resolutions will be held on the first day of the annual meetings at [2:30pm – 4:10pm, Maroon Peak].  Possible modifications to the resolutions will be considered during the open discussion.  The revised (if any) resolutions will then be presented as a package for approval by the membership at the business meeting.

We would also like to remind individuals and divisions who submitted resolutions, that the administrative office may call on you to assist in the action called for in your resolution (e.g. helping to draft a letter to a government official).  Our thanks to everyone who submitted a resolution and to our members for giving them careful consideration.  If you have any questions regarding the proposed resolutions, I can be reached at

Most sincerely,

Wendy L. Chapkis, SSSP Vice-President, 2011-2012
