Resolutions and General Assemblies

International Congresses and General Assemblies are held every 3 years in various countries of the world. The General Assemblies decide upon administrative policy. Resolutions expressing the concerns of the members are submitted to the General Assembly for approval and passed resolutions reflect the policy and position of MWIA to various topics.

Timeline for drafting and approving Resolutions

All resolutions must be submitted at least 6 months before a Congress otherwise they will be carried over to the next Congress. All Resolutions must be completed before the Congress. The only exception is if a time critical matter arises during the Congress and one which the President after consulting with the Exco feels cannot wait until the next Congress.The draft resolutions will be circulated with the MWIA members 2-3 page guide for General Assemblies 4 weeks in advance of the Congress.
