SAM Call for Delegate Assembly Resolutions 2014

School Administrators of Montana (SAM) is calling for resolutions on legislative or advocacy issues that members want to bring before the Delegate Assembly (scheduled for June 12-13, 2014 in Helena) and the full Membership at MCEL (scheduled for October 15-17, 2014 in Billings) for consideration.  Please submit resolutions to the SAM office for consideration by Friday, May 23, 2014. The process was designed to allow SAM member Affiliates time to discuss proposals for resolutions at the Caucus meetings on the evening of June 12, prior to the Delegate Assembly on June 13.

Here are some suggestions if you are considering a resolution for submission to assist SAM, the Delegates and the full membership:

  • State the action you are calling on SAM to address
  • If it is not readily apparent from the wording of the resolution, provide any citations to legal statutes or rules that the resolution is proposing to amend (if you know)
  • Provide some background information or rationale that explains your perspective on why the resolution should be considered by Delegate Assembly and the Membership
  • Send the Resolution request via email to Kirk Miller, SAM Executive Director at samkm@sammt.org by May 23, 2014 so it can be prepared for the Delegate Assembly Caucus scheduled for the evening of June 12.  A copy should also be sent to your Affiliate President and the Affiliate Delegate Assembly Steering Committee Member as well.

Thanks for your review and effort to help SAM prepare our Advocacy package prior to the 2015 Legislative Session.
