SSSP 2019 Annual Meeting

Date: Friday, August 9

Time: 2:30 PM - 4:10 PM


Session 038: Open Discussion of Resolutions Being Proposed to the Board of Directors
Room: Plaza Suite

Sponsor: Council of Division Chairpersons

Organizer &

Presider: William D. Cabin, Temple University

Description:  Plan to attend the open forum of discussion where resolutions will be presented among concerned members on Friday, August 9 from 2:30pm-4:10pm (Plaza Suite, Mezzanine Level). Each proposed resolution will be presented by the person who created the resolution (or designated representative) and the sponsoring Division’s Chairperson. Adequate time for discussion will be properly allotted. All Division Chairs should plan to participate in this session or designate a proxy from their division if unable to attend.

At the Annual Business Meeting, the proposed resolutions will be presented (including any modifications or revisions) by Vice-President William D. Cabin as a package for approval for action by the attending membership. The membership will vote on proposed resolutions that were discussed and revised on the first day of the meeting. If objections from the floor are raised to any specific resolution at the SSSP Business Meeting, that resolution can, by majority vote of those present, be separated from the package, and voted on separately. Those present can either vote to support the resolution as proposed, make changes to the resolution before voting, even without the approval of the originator(s), or decide to table the resolution for further discussion at the subsequent year’s annual meeting.
