Resolutions should be submitted by July 10 and come from a voting member, a congregation, a committee, or an agency of the Allegheny Synod. Included with the above 2020 Synod Assembly Registration and Material is a sample form for Resolutions and Memorials to be presented at the Synod Assembly. Any resolution received after July 10 will NOT be included in the Bulletin of Reports.

The Committee on Reference and Counsel will review all resolutions via Zoom meeting. The committee may consult with the maker of the resolution if changes are required.
