THINGS TO CONSIDER WHEN DRAFTING YOUR RESOLUTION:

     Cite the OAS Charter, conventions, protocols, documents, OAS passed resolutions,
        rationale
     Quote these documents properly
     Who will fund and how
     Statistics and data are current
     Aligns with our countries’, regions’, and hemisphere’s concerns/perspective/bias
     Ideas are NOT too general to be worthy of debate
     Ideas are specific, well defined, and workable/doable
     Ideas are realistic, creative, and BOLD
     It is clear what individual, body or institution is to carry out your actions

     Suggestions: Have you considered creating: . . . Multilateral treaties, summits,
conventions, ad hoc committees, standing committees, changes in OAS structure,
amendments to the Charter…?
