State delegations will be located in a modified alphabetic order to accommodate the room’s wider setup and to allow delegations traditionally seated at the back to sit closer to the podium.
A total of 29 resolutions have been submitted, requiring use of four Reference Committees. We will convene a fourth Reference Committee of the Whole on the single topic of MDs as ACOFP Active Members, immediately following the usual Reference Committee deliberations on other resolutions.
ELECTRONIC DOCUMENTS ONLY
Given the number of resolutions, no printed copies will be provided.
Wi-Fi will be available in the Congress sessions and at Reference Committee meetings. Please come to the meetings with charged electronic devices If you prefer printed copies of the resolutions, please print them out in advance and bring to the meeting
REFERENCE COMMITTEE REPORTS
After the four Reference Committee reports are finalized late Wednesday evening, an email message with link to the reports will be sent to Delegates via email. Also, a Consent Agenda will begin each Reference Committee report for resolutions that the Reference Committee recommends adoption without amendments. Delegates will have an opportunity to remove resolutions from the Consent Agenda so that comments can be made from the floor.
These changes will allow for the processing of all Congress business in a time-efficient and cost effective manner. If you have questions about the 2019 Congress schedule and how documents will be distributed, please contact ACOFP Executive Director and Congress Secretary, Mr. Bob Moore at email@example.com
or call 847-952-5108.
