2021 Declaration of Candidacy Form >>

Letter from ISMA Leaders >>

The deadline to submit resolutions was Monday, July 12.

ISMA staff will review resolutions before they are published to make sure they conform to ISMA’s Resolution Writing Guidelines. Staff may also provide information regarding any existing related laws or current ISMA policies, if identified, to authors. Any suggested editorial changes in resolutions will be communicated to the authors for approval before resolutions are published. If a resolution would create a fiscal impact, the potential impact will be communicated to the author before a fiscal note is appended to the resolution. If you would like to consult with ISMA Government Relations staff about your resolution, email Luke McNamee.

Once staff has reviewed the resolutions, they will be made available for review and comments from any ISMA member according to the following timeline (dates may be subject to adjustment).
