The deadline to submit a timely resolution for consideration at the 2020 Executive Board Meeting in November is Wednesday, October 14, by 5:00PM. Resolutions not complying with the above time limits, for either Executive Board meetings or annual CDP Conventions, will be termed "late resolutions." In order for a late resolution to be considered for passage, the sponsor of the resolution must provide the CDP STAFF with 35 printed copies of the resolution for use by the Committee members.

For a resolution to be considered, it must be sponsored by a member of the DSCC. Be sure to include this qualifying information on the submission form.

Please be advised:

Resolutions are intended to be general statements of our principles.

Resolutions that dive into highly technical and detailed policy recommendations may not be considered by the Committee at their meeting.

Resolutions should not reference or take positions on specific bill numbers, legislation, or ballot initiatives.

The resolving body of the resolution MUST be the California Democratic Party, not a different organization.

After resolutions have been passed at a Convention or EBoard, or qualify to be automatically be posted by being "reaffirmed", CDP will send them to the office of the Governor, the ProTem of the Senate, and the Speaker of the Assembly in the same format as they are posted on the Resolutions Committee website. It is the responsibility of the author(s) to send resolutions to anyone else.

Late Resolutions will not be accepted at any Virtual E-Board Meetings.
