For a Unit to pass a resolution to the LUDM, a member of the Unit must propose the resolution at their Q4 Unit Meeting being held in either November or December, it must be in a correct format, and the Unit Meeting must approve it by majority vote. To be clear, your November or December Unit meeting is the only Unit Meeting at which such a resolution may still be passed prior to the submission deadline.
