Annual Meeting Resolutions & Proposals

Resolutions are expressions of opinion by a meeting, not constituting legislative action of the Association, and generally concern subjects of general interest to the academic profession and the public. Proposals concern the internal organization of the Association and the Association’s activities; if a proposal is adopted by the annual meeting, and concurred in by the Council, the action it proposes becomes the action of the AAUP.
