At our annual Convention we have thirty resolutions.  Must I read everyone or could I give each voting delegate

a copy of the resolutions and say Resolution #3 and take a vote or do IO have to read everyone,

"If the text of the resolution or motion has been distributed to the members in advance, however, it need not be read when moved." (RONR 11th ed., p. 33, lines 31-34)

However, note the last sentence of the following:

"Similarly, if the text of a resolution has been distributed
to the members in advance, the chair may state the question without reading it in full, instead identifying the resolution by its subject or designated title, number, letter, or the like, as by saying, 'It is moved and seconded to adopt the resolution relating to …, as printed.' In such a case...any member has the right to have the motion or resolution read by the chair or the secretary." (RONR 11th ed., p. 38, line 27 - p. 39, line 6)

So you can just refer to Resolution #3 instead of reading it out. However, any member can, at anytime up until you call for the vote, require you to read it out.
