At the 2017 CDP State Convention, the CDP Rules Committee recommended Bylaws amendments for adoption at the August 2017 CDP Executive Board Meeting, Au‌gust 2‌5-27, 20‌17, at Sheraton Park Hotel in Anaheim.

The CDP Rules Committee is taking testimony for Bylaws amendments received and referred to Rules Subcommittees, including ADEM, Endorsements, and Miscellaneous Issues Subcommittees.

  • The deadline to submit a timely resolution for consideration at the Executive Board is Wednesday, July 26 at 5:00 pm. Late resolutions are not timely and may not be considered until the Executive Board Meeting in November 2017. Resolutions may be submitted online. Please visit the CDP Resolutions Committee page for information on how to properly format and submit resolutions.
