Resolutions to change BLET bylaws due February 17

The deadline is quickly approaching for BLET Divisions planning to submit resolutions to change the Bylaws of the BLET National Division.

Resolutions must arrive at the National Division President's office at least 120 days before the next convention; on or before Friday, February 17, 2006.

Before submitting resolutions, Divisions should refer to Section 39 of the Bylaws, titled "Resolutions to ND - When Presented." BLET law requires that six copies of each resolution must be forwarded to the National Office before the deadline.

Because the Committee on Bylaws must review, compile and publish in sufficient quantities all timely submitted resolutions for presentation to each delegate, divisions are encouraged to submit their resolutions as soon as possible. Mail them to:

As guidance, a sample resolution for changing our union's laws is printed at the end of the National Division Bylaws; it appears in Section 99 (page 40).

The convention will be held in Las Vegas on June 19-22, 2006.
