Delegate Updates (August 2023)

Previously, Critical Issues (CI) were only considered one (1) to two (2) times per year. This process has been updated so now Academy members can submit CI year-round. Please consider submitting any topics you feel passionate about. The House of Delegates encourages you to be thoughtful and when possible, to provide links to resources or findings that will help them evaluate your suggestion. Use the link below to submit Critical Issues to the Academy for consideration. Be sure to provide as much detail as possible.
