Resolutions are an important way to raise issues for discussion at the Annual General Meeting and to request action by ARNNL Council. Resolutions are advisory in nature and therefore not binding on Council. Resolutions consistent with ARNNL's mandate and role may be submitted by special interest groups or individual members. Resolutions can be submitted by mail, fax or email. View ARNNL's guidelines on submission of resolutions. The deadline for submission of resolutions is May 10, 2019.
