|The operative clauses of a resolution tell the reader what ACTION the
committee should take to solve the problem set up in the preamble. The
operative clauses should be the strongest part of your resolution, and will
certainly be the most debated part.
The first word of the operative clause should technically be a verb, and should show what will follow in the clause. Language and tone will play a very important part in determining the strength of your operative clauses. Each operative clause should be numbered, and should end with a semi-colon (;). The last operative clause should be followed by a period (.).
