TAASA Resolution Guidelines and Proposal Form
Resolution Guidelines:
Texas Association Against Sexual Assault (TAASA) is a membership organization that is committed to ending sexual violence in Texas. An important benefit of TAASA membership is the ability to propose and vote on resolutions.
What is a resolution?
A resolution is a formal expression of an intention to take action or make a commitment. Whether it is a commitment to raise awareness or take a specific stance, resolutions can provide direction and inform change.
How does TAASA use resolutions?
Resolutions are the basis of TAASA’s organizational policy & shapes the movement to end sexual violence in Texas. Approved resolutions will be used to help shape legislative efforts, guide the actions of the board, and provide direction for TAASA as a whole.
Who can submit resolutions?
Resolutions can be submitted by an individual, group, or an agency. As long as you or your organization are members of TAASA, then you are eligible to propose a resolution. Feel free to reach out to your region representative for assistance!
How long are they in effect?
An approved resolution will remain in effect for four years from its implementation. TAASA members can choose to resubmit any expiring resolution if they would like it to be reconsidered and voted on by membership. If you would like to help us shape Texas policy, become a member & submit a resolution to be considered and voted on at the Annual Membership meeting at TAASA’s Annual Conference.
