2. Resolution items

In addition to any resolutions that may be put forward by the Division of Educational and Child Psychology – Northern Ireland Committee, members can submit their own resolutions proposals for the Annual General Meeting (AGM). 

The request for a resolution item to be considered for inclusion in the AGM agenda is the formal mechanism for members to bring matters to the attention of the Division of Educational and Child Psychology – Northern Ireland Committee and the membership. This process is called raising a resolution item.

The resolution item submitted is then considered by the Society or the Division of Educational and Child Psychology – Northern Ireland Committee. If the resolution item has been acted on by the Society or Division of Educational and Child Psychology – Northern Ireland Committee before the AGM, then it may be agreed with the member that the item will be removed from the AGM agenda. 

If a resolution item is included on the AGM agenda, the member may be requested to talk on the matter at the AGM. The following discussion will be minuted and if necessary, a postal ballot will be arrange after the AGM to enable the voting Division of Educational and Child Psychology – Northern Ireland membership to vote on the resolution item, if a postal ballot has not been undertaken prior to the meeting.

Please note that only members with voting rights are able to raise resolution items.

Please note that only items that are included on the AGM agenda may be discussed; there is no ‘any other business’ at this type of General Meeting.
