What is the reason for the motion? The preamble for a motion explains the reasons for why this motion should be adopted. Each reason given should be a separate clause, beginning with "whereas" and ending with a semicolon. Please be succinct. The Steering Committee may edit this portion for readability, but you have the right to final edit.
What are the specific actions being moved? The operative clauses follow "it is resolved that" and are the main body of the motion. This is where you put the specific actions that you want the Local to take. Each specific action should mention the specific officer, committee, or working group that you want to take the action. If you want to require the officer, committee, or working group, use "shall," as in "The Secretary shall create a Google form to submit motions." If you want to grant permission to take an action, use "may," as in "The Secretary may create a Google form...." If you want to require action, you might want to provide a reasonable timeframe for completing the action and a report be given to the general membership.
