The deadline for mission centers to submit legislation for consideration at the 2025 World Conference is less than a year away.
Submissions should address significant issues that would concern the entire church and propose actions that are clear, readily implementable, and directly address concerns raised.
Background on Timeline
Submitting resolutions early in the inter-Conference period will provide ample time for translation, collaborative review by church leaders and mission centers, and thorough church-wide discernment.
World Conference Resolution 1308 “Time for Introduction of New Business,” adopted in June 2016, states:
Resolved, That for legislation to come before World Conference, such legislation must be submitted to the First Presidency no later than one year before the opening of each World Conference.
HOW TO DRAFT RESOLUTIONS
International Headquarters hosted an "In the Know" session on how to draft World Conference resolutions. Watch the video for helpful instructions and information on writing resolutions.
The Resolutions Review Team is a resource available to those preparing resolutions. The Team consists of members who are copyeditors, legal counsel, parliamentarians, and common consent representatives. Contact Susan Naylor, World Church Secretary, to engage with the Resolutions Review Team.
Submitters are encouraged to send draft submissions to the Resolution Review Team before they are finalized and approved by a mission center conference.
Final submissions are due 30 May 2024 and should be sent to World Church Secretary, Susan Naylor.
