Invitation to participate in MWIA centenary fabric collage
Dr. Eleanor Nwadinobi, Chair of the Centennial Public Relations Committee, invites all national associations and individual members (where there is no national association) to make a fabric collage for the Centennial Congress. Her letter with instructions and a picture of the proposed fabric square is found here. In order to plan for the final collage, it would be helpful if each national association could notify her who will be bringing your collage to the Centennial Congress by January 25, 2019.
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.
Resolutions can be come from four sources: national associations, individual members where there is no national association, regional congresses and members of the MWIA executive.
The draft resolutions will be circulated with the MWIA members 2-3 page guide for General Assemblies 4 weeks in advance of the Congress. Further information and the template for submitting resolutions can be found here: https://mwia.net/about/resolutions.
