Submit a Legislative Resolution to MSBA by September 25
MSBA members are encouraged to propose resolutions to the Delegate Assembly for the 2021 legislative session. Your resolutions are the first step to developing the MSBA’s official positions on important educational issues. Each resolution is researched, vetted and voted on by the membership at the Delegate Assembly. Once adopted, these policies guide the MSBA Government Relations team as they represent you at the Legislature. Resolutions should cover any education topic of significant statewide concern and address desired legislative outcomes. Resolutions are not legislation. If you, or your school board, has a suggestion for a resolution, please access on of the forms below. Please submit your legislative resolutions no later than Friday, September 25, 2020. See the resolution-related articles from the September-October 2018 Journal magazine for more information.
