|The preamble is the first half of the resolution. It explains WHY the
action in the operative clauses should be taken. It states past action,
reasons for the action and your reasons for concern.
The first word of the preambulatory clause should set the "tone" for the statement which will follow. Tone has to do with the strength of your conviction about the topic. Therefore, the stronger the conviction about an issue, the stronger the first word.
Each clause in the preamble should be followed by a comma (,) and the word "and." The last clause in this section of the resolution should be followed by a colon (:). See example resolution.
