WHEREAS, we live in a culture that is increasingly environmentally friendly, generally referred to as "being green"; and
WHEREAS, NAACP units are required to turn in several reporting forms, including but not limited to quarterly reports, membership forms, and annual financial reports; and
WHEREAS, units on average use thousands, if not millions of pieces of paper to send reporting forms to the national office and their respective state offices; and
WHEREAS, the option for units to electronically submit their reports would save time and money, which are both highly valued.
THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the NAACP will seek to find ways to reduce the amount of paper reporting forms; and,
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the NAACP will work to identify an online mechanism and tools that will enable units to input data for various reporting forms; and
BE IT FINALLY RESOLVED, that the NAACP will strive to reduce its ecological footprint in an effort to go green and secure a more sustainable environment for future generations.
