Potential candidates must be councillors of the Federation. Experience as a member of the Resolutions Committee will be considered an asset but is not required.

- To treat as confidential, the deliberations of the Resolutions Committee regarding the adjudication of resolutions.
- To carry out other responsibilities as requested by the Executive.
- To move, through the Resolutions Committee chairperson, en bloc and courtesy resolutions.
- To be available during meetings of Council to receive late resolutions and determine the status of these resolutions in accordance with resolutions procedures.
Names will be forwarded to the senior administrative staff members that support this Committee. A recommendation will then be made to the STF Executive who has the responsibility, according to STF Bylaw 2.5.1, to appoint the Committee members annually.
