2009 DPDC RESOLUTIONS COMMITTEE
One way the Dane County Democratic Party addresses issues is by drafting and adopting resolutions that frame and convey our values.
"Local Issue" resolutions, for Dane County use only, have no word limit; "State Issue" resolutions, competing to advance to Congressional District and State Party conventions, have a 100 word limit, not including the title.
Besides stating the DCDP's position on relevant issues, resolutions may call for specific actions, such as lobbying for or against a given bill or candidate, sending out media releasses, or whatever the membership so directs.
Before drafting a resolution, refer to the latest Democratic Party of Wisconsin Platform to make sure the issue has not already been addressed.
Resolutions designed to impact the Democratic Party of Wisconsin Platform, which is renewed every 2 years, after being adopted at the County level, must compete and be adopted at the spring 2nd CD and summer DPW conventions.
Any paid member of the DCDP is invited to join the Resolutions Committee.
