As with many deliberative bodies, it has been the practice of the Libertarian National Committee to adopt Resolutions concerning a variety of subjects. These can be divided into three main groups.

Resolutions Concerning Public Policy

The LNC has adopted many resolutions declaring a position in favor of or in opposition to legislation, military action, and similar matters. These are typically on subjects already covered in some sense by the Platform, but are adopted because members of the LNC believe it to be helpful to make a more specific statement. Reasons for this may include bringing a subject to the attention of the membership, clarifying how a Platform plank applies to a particular question currently in the news, facilitating mention in news media of the Party's position, and as a form of outreach to other groups concerned about the issue.

Resolutions Concerning Internal Policies

As part of its responsibility to manage the affairs of the Party, the LNC is continually making decisions about its own operations and management of the headquarters and staff. In the early years, internal policy decisions intended to have ongoing effect were typically expressed in the form of a resolution. Starting in the 1990s, the use of stand-alone resolutions for this purpose has largely been replaced by the practice of explicitly amending the LNC Policy Manual.

Resolutions Recognizing Activists

The LNC has often adopted resolutions recognizing the contributions of officers, staff, candidates, and other activists, typically either upon the completion of their terms or campaigns or at the time of their death.

Prior Compilations of Resolutions

Prior to the creation of the LNC Policy Manual, it was the practice of the LNC to maintain a compilation of the internal policy resolutions. These were not organized by topic, but rather assigned sequential numbers according to the order of their adoption; from time to time, however, attempts were made to create an additional index by topic.
