Proposals and Recommendations to Cadet Congress
Congress meets for three days in January every year to determine any additions and/or changes to the Cadet ministry. The primary business of Congress is to discuss and vote on proposals that come from the counselors (via their councils). Any active Cadet counselor can make a proposal to Congress but it will be reviewed by the executive committee to make sure it:
1. Has sufficient grounds
2. Is constitutional
3. The proposal arrives at the Cadet office on or before October 1 (three months prior to when Congress meets)
PLUS proposals must come to the executive committee through the Cadet council with the signatures of two council officers or congressmen.
Below is a link to download the Congress proposal form. If you are a counselor and have a proposal for congress,
PLEASE make sure you follow the guidelines above and submit your proposal through your council.
Recommendations can be made by any active Cadet counselor. The form requires a signature of a council president or congressman if you're a counselor in a club that is part of a council. If you are a counselor in an independent club, you must have the head counselor's signature. Any recommendation or comments submitted on a recommendation form will be forwarded to the appropriate Congress committee and the committee my share this recommendation on the floor of Congress if they choose, BUT no official action will be taken. If the Congress committee favors the recommendation, the executive committee will review it and decide whether action should be taken to implement it.
