|Two important dates
- July 16
Deadline to submit resolutions
- Sept. 14-16
First, if you are concerned about an issue, consider introducing a resolution. An online tutorial can help you here.
Resolutions are considered first by reference committees and then by the House of Delegates. If passed, they become ISMA policy. But don’t forget, resolutions must be submitted to the ISMA by Monday, July 16.
If you have questions, call the ISMA at (800) 257-4762 or (317) 261-2060.
Plan to attend
Second, participate in the ISMA annual convention Sept. 14-16 at the JW Marriott, downtown Indianapolis. The event gives you the chance to express your viewpoints on issues in reference committees. Delegates then may debate those issues on the House floor.
Find details on the ISMA convention page.
