A membership grassroots process determines NWPPA’s annual slate of resolutions. This process begins with NWPPA members and staff individually or collectively drafting proposed resolutions or preparing comments on existing resolutions prior to submitting them to NWPPA for presentation to the Government Relations Committee (GRC).

Having completed this process, the following are the approved slate of 2017 resolutions that were passed by the membership at the May 9, 2017, Annual Business Meeting.
