Federal Resolutions are submitted by provinces to the FWIC board through the Lobby & Advocacy Committee which are presented by committee for consideration at the two annual board meetings between triennial conventions.
Resolutions are accepted for presentation to the national convention until three months prior to that convention; copies are then forwarded to board members and to the offices of the Provincial Units one month prior to the convention. Resolutions are then presented at the Triennial Meeting and accepted by the board then presented to the members at the National Convention.
Emergency resolutions are also presented for consideration by the board and national convention; these must be considered by the board prior to presentation at the national convention.
