Alliance resolutions are formal policy statements related to the legislative landscape. We draw upon these resolutions when speaking with members of the legislature and other policy makers to show what we value when considering policy changes, including laws and regulations.
Resolutions are developed within the parameters of our general health policy platform.
Once resolutions are drafted by the Health Policy Committee they are passed to the Alliance Board of Directors where they are reviewed, amended as needed and endorsed. Resolutions are voted on by the membership at our Annual Meeting.
