Our Resolutions

Always Improving

When a Family and Community Support Services member program identifies a common issue, they are invited to formally submit a proposed resolution to the membership and Board of the FCSSAA at the Annual General Meeting held in November. The resolutions that pass at the AGM are used by the FCSSAA to advocate for changes in policy or legislation as required, resulting in a stronger, more efficient service ready to turn momentum into action.

FCSSAA Annual reports, which have full descriptions of resolutions, can be found in the Documents and Resource Library.
