Process for Resolutions of Provincial Interest

1. Members submit their resolutions to Area Association for debate.

2. The Area Association submits the endorsed resolutions of provincial interest to UBCM.

3. The UBCM Resolution Committee reviews the resolutions for submission to the UBCM Convention.

4. Endorsed resolutions at the UBCM Convention are submitted to the appropriate level of government for responses.

5. Once the provincial responses have been conveyed to the UBCM they are forwarded to the sponsor for their review.

Endorsed Resolutions of Interest to AVICC Members Only

Some resolutions are of interest only to AVICC member communities because of their regional nature.  In such cases, AVICC Executive submits the endorsed resolution directly to the appropriate level of government or agency for response.  Responses are then forwarded to the sponsor for review and posted under  the Newsroom page of the website.
