What Are Non-Binding Resolutions?
Resolutions are formal statements to indicate support, satisfaction, dissatisfaction or concerns for matters relating to the direction, policies, programs and/or services of an organization. Resolutions are not binding but intended to provide direction for the Lactanet Board of Directors to consider.
The Lactanet Resolutions process is a simple, yet formal process that is open to all licensed dairy farmers in Canada. The Resolutions website allows dairy producers the opportunity to submit, participate in discussions, and vote on non-binding resolutions. The ideas shared are a catalyst for best practices, knowledge sharing and collective evolution.
