Directive #1 25 August 2009 Chair: Pauline Krupa Greetings! For those who do not know me well: I am a Special Education Teacher for the Thunder Bay Catholic District School Board at Our Lady of Charity School. I have taught for many years (some might think far too many). I have been prayerfully considering my retirement and know now that is definitely my final year. I am an active member of my parish community at St. Peter's. My son Daniel, his wife Shan and grand-daughter Joelle are the joys of my life. I enjoy being at home puttering with this and that. Outside of home, parish and school, I fill my time with basket-weaving, local theatre, and a few volunteer hours for a variety of organizations. The Catholic Women's League of Canada came to be a part of my life 20 years ago. As a charter member to our St. Peter's Council in Thunder Bay, my journey has been very rewarding. Over the years I have been genuinely blessed with women who freely shared their gifts and talents so that I could grow in The League. I thank the Arch/Diocesan councils who placed their support and trust in me by electing me to Provincial Council at the Convention. I promise to be, and to do the very best I can to fulfill my mandate as your 2nd Vice-President and Resolutions Standing Committee Chairperson. Resolutions Standing Committee Chairperson's Duties Research and preparation of resolutions and briefs (team effort) Study and implementation of resolutions passed by other levels At provincial and national levels, presentation of resolutions to government Taken from the Executive Handbook Understanding Resolutions In 2004 Margaret Ann Jacobs prepared and presented a Resolutions workshop. All Arch/Dioceses received electronic copies of the workshop. Check to see if it is still available in your area. If not, email me and I will send it to you. To this directive I have attached a Resolutions workshop that was prepared for the BC and Yukon provincial council. It too is a good workshop. In using it, please be sure to check the dates suggested for submissions.
