What is a resolution? Per a dictionary, the first definition of a resolution is: [rez-uh-loo-shuh n] noun 1. a formal expression of opinion or intention made, usually after voting, by a formal organization, a legislature, a club, or other group.
For purposes of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), a resolution"is to provide a formal mechanism whereby the members of the Academy can give input concerning Academy policy and activities." If you are passionate about a particular idea or topic that you feel should be a priority for the National AAP, then please consider submitting a resolution. Please see the "Guidelines for Submitting Resolutions, Writing and Submitting a Resolution - A Step by Step Guide", and the latest resolution template accessible via links below to get you started. These resources are also available on the ALF main page accessible via the My AAP website, where you will also find a searchable database of past resolutions. Resolutions should have new ideas not previously considered or discussed at Annual Leadership Forum (ALF).
