JENNY: A resolution is a main motion. A main motion is offered as a resolution due to its importance, length, or complexity. The focus of the resolution is the Resolved sentences. Delegates are voting on the resolution based on what is being resolved. After it is read, the member offers their resolution by saying, “I move to adopt the resolution 2012-RES-003”. The President will then put the resolution to vote. Like main motions, resolutions can be debated, amended and requires a majority vote. The following is an example resolution:
