Personal Letter Writing Guide
As I am new to this standing committee, I am finding that there is a lot to learn
and much that can be done. As a former teacher of primary students and mother
of five, now young adults, (John and I celebrated our fortieth anniversary in July),
I am aware that there are many issues of concern – in our spiritual lives, in
health, education, family and community life, even in communications – all areas
of life encompassed by League standing committees. I have been a League
member for 15 years, serving as parish president for three terms and am
currently past president and chairperson of resolutions and legislation.

Resolutions for 2011
Anne-Marie Gorman, National Chairperson of Resolutions has informed us that
four resolutions were adopted by delegates at the National Convention.
Prohibition of Practices re: Human Reproductive Material Children of Missing and Murdered Aboriginal Women National Organ and Tissue Transplantation Registry
These resolutions will be published in the Fall issue of the League magazine with
suggested action plans for members and will be presented by members of the
National Executive to members of the Federal Government in November.
Resolution 2011.4 Caffeine in Energy Drinks:
Congratulations to Lidwina, Rita, Agnes and Kay on the development of
Resolution 2011.4 Caffeine in Energy Drinks. It started out as an idea – a
concern – and was discussed and researched from the parish level to national. I
was fortunate to attend the meeting in the final preparation of this resolution and
was amazed by the careful planning and attention to detail. No doubt, it was due
to their diligence and the excellent presentation by Rita that it passed
unanimously at the National Convention.
A copy of this resolution is attached with a plan of action for members,
HOWEVER, on October 6th; Health Canada issued a press release announcing
new measures that will provide consumers with more information on energy
drinks. We will wait to hear more before proceeding with the action plan.
Letter Writing
Letter writing by councils and members is a most important action in following up
on adopted resolutions. It is suggested that you write, depending on the issue:
Federal: prime minister, cabinet minister, member of parliament, senator Provincial: premier, cabinet minister, member of the legislature Municipal: mayor, councilor  Other persons in authority: church, business, school system, professions Individual letters written on personal stationary are most effective. When a letter
is written and copies sent to other ministers, count each one. When parish
councils are completing annual reports, include the number of letters written in
support of the resolutions adopted at previous conventions. With over 95 000
members, we can make a difference.
An excellent guide for writing letters can be obtained from the Personal Letter

Writing Resolutions
Do you have an issue or concern which you feel strongly about?
Listen to radio, TV, read newspapers, search the internet for articles relating to
the issue and keep members informed (you may want to keep a file of
information, relating to topics of interest). Discuss your concerns in your councils
– a few members may want to do some research on the subject. Then decide
what action you think that is necessary. This would go in the “be it Resolved”
clause and the reasons for the action in the “Whereas” clauses. You can then
formulate your resolution.
When writing a resolution – word the resolved clauses first and the the whereas
clauses next.
The standard form for all resolutions:
WHEREAS, The………….and
WHEREAS, There……….and
WHEREAS, It…………….therefore be it
RESOLVED, That the members of…………and be it further
RESOLVED, That……….
You may find formulating a resolution interesting, rewarding and even fun!
If you have a resolution or an idea that you think might be important or any
questions please contact me – we are always there to help!
Some of the reasons we write resolutions are:
 To influence authority  To bring about changes  As a means of taking sides when necessary in the struggle for justice
Happy Resolutions Writing!
