Province II of The Episcopal Church
Resolution Proposal Form
Because the 2021 meeting of the Synod of The International Atlantic Province will be held by electronic means rather than an in-person meeting, the Rules of Order allow for pre-filing of resolution proposals. Resolutions may only be proposed by Bishops or Deputies entitled to vote at the Synod.
In addition to other resolutions that the Synod may adopt, Provinces are permitted to propose resolutions for consideration at the upcoming General Convention of The Episcopal Church. Such proposals should begin "Be it Resolved, That the International Atlantic Province submit the following Resolution to the General Convention:", and the proposal must follow, complying in form with the General Convention's Resolution Writing Guidelines (https://extranet.generalconvention.org/staff/files/download/17956).
Other proposed resolutions should contain at least two sections: the RESOLVED, naming the desired action, and a FURTHER RESOLVED, as appropriate, providing for the implementation of the resolution if adopted. Proposed resolutions must not include any whereas clause or other preamble. Each resolution must be accompanied by a short explanatory statement by its proponent.
Please complete and submit the following form by twenty days prior to the opening of Synod in order to allow for translations. Under the Rules of Order, proposals received after that deadline will require a two-thirds vote of Synod for consideration.
Person Making Resolution Proposal: The Rev. Dcn. Lillian Davis-Wilson
Diocese of Person Making Resolution Proposal: Western New York
Email Address of Person Making Resolution Proposal: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please attach the text of the Resolution Proposal in text or word-processing format.
Be it resolved, That the 2021 Synod of the Second Province of the Episcopal Church, the International Atlantic Province, expresses it gratitude and appreciation to Canon Noreen Duncan of the Diocese of New Jersey for her service and publicly recognizes the outstanding leadership she has provided as Lay Representative to Executive Council. Her leadership distinguishes her, honors the Province, and marks a deep commitment to the Episcopal Church, particularly in the areas of race relations and inclusivity as she has served, and continues to fulfill her term, as Province II’s Lay Representative to Executive Council from 2015 until 2022. Province II tenders its appreciation and many thanks for a job well done, and we wish her well in all future personal and professional endeavors.
