3. Resolutions

1150. Resolutions. Resolutions may be submitted to the district conference by a local church conference, the district board of administration, or any three voting members of the district conference with their signatures.

1153. Memorials. All resolutions intended for eventual recommendation by the district conference to the General Conference, including changes in The Discipline and any other proposals, shall be designated as “memorials” (1557-1560). Anyone authorized to submit a resolution may also submit a memorial to be passed upon by the district conference.

1156. Procedure. All resolutions shall be submitted as directed by the district conference. The district board of administration shall be responsible to review each resolution or memorial as to its origin (1150), clarity, relationship to The Discipline and other existing legislation of the General Conference or district conference, and shall report them to the district conference together with their recommendations. A properly submitted resolution cannot be withheld from the conference body unless withdrawn by its authors or declared out of order by the chair of the district conference as contravening The Discipline. The district secretary shall present any resolutions in question to the district conference chair for a ruling before presenting them on the conference floor. The district conference may by a two-thirds vote suspend the requirement that a resolution must first be reviewed and immediately proceed to consider and vote upon said resolution.
