Resolutions serve two primary functions in the life of the Baptist Convention of Iowa. They express appreciation and they extend special recognition for special achievements.
Resolutions adopted by the executive board or by the messengers in session are not binding on the congregations affiliated with the Baptist Convention of Iowa. With the exception of resolutions that only serve to express opinion regarding public issues, they are, however, binding upon the Convention.
Individuals wishing to present resolutions for the consideration of executive board members or messengers shall present proposed resolutions in writing to the executive director-treasurer at least sixty days prior to their intended adoption date by the executive board members or Convention messengers. The executive director-treasurer shall be responsible for presenting proposed resolutions to the administrative committee in the next meeting of the committee after receipt of pending resolutions.
