How to Propose a Resolution

The diocesan convention conducts business by means of resolution. The Convention Resolutions Committee would like to help make the process of proposing, discussing, and adopting resolutions as positive and constructive as possible.  The Canons require certain deadlines and a format for resolutions, which are described in the resolution guidelines.

Questions or requests for assistance should be directed to William A. Powel ( or 216-774-0449.

The deadline for resolutions to be included in the handbook is September 8, 2017.  The canonical deadline is September 27.  Please send proposed resolutions electronically to or by mail to:
