Resolutions

Note: NHCSL resolutions go through an extended research, deliberative and approval process that takes a minimum of 45 days and up to a year or more and provides the members with feedback and potential amendments from the NHCSL policy staff, the relevant Task Force and the NHCSL Executive Committee. 

Except in the case of emergency resolutions which can be approved via supermajority by the Executive Committee on behalf of the Caucus at any time, all final NHCSL resolutions are ratified and made public after the Annual Meeting of the full membership, which typically takes place close to the end of the year. Expect new resolutions to be published here in the second half of December or first half of January.

Resolutions are numbered in the order in which they were introduced, but are published in the order in which they were finally approved, with the latest being the first on the list below.
