There is a Members’ Business Meeting on the 1st Tuesday of every month in room #SLAA2 at 9pm ET (concurrent with the regular meeting in #SLAA). All are welcome! Send any issues to firstname.lastname@example.org any time throughout any month for inclusion in the agenda.
S.L.A.A. Fellowship Wide Services is in need of sponsors for their long-distance sponsorship program. If interested, please visit their http://www.slaafws.org.
The S.L.A.A. Fellowship Wide Services Conference Literature Committee (CLC) is working on a 12 Steps and 12 Traditions book to document our experiences, strength, and hope. They welcome relevant member contributions (preferably as an MS-Word document). Feel free to email email@example.com and ask that your submission be forwarded to the Chairperson of the Conference Literature Committee — or we will be glad to forward your file, if you prefer.
Many members do not have local meetings. S.L.A.A. Fellowship Wide Services has a bimonthly “meeting in print” called the The Journal which is available by subscription at The Journal for $18(US) yearly. They also welcome member submissions to TheJournalEditor@slaafws.org for publication.
SLAA-FWS recently made the The First Ten Years of the Journal (9/89-8/99) into three volumes selling for $12(US) each or $33(US) for the entire set. (Each volume is size of SLAA Basic Text.) See The First Ten Years of the Journal to order.
There are a number of SLAA Journal articles on anorexia over the years — SLAA-FWS has printed 23 Journal articles on the topic of Anorexia in a 52-page booklet for $5(US). See Topic-Oriented Booklets to order.
There are a number of upcoming SLAA conferences or retreats (any .pdf files require Acrobat Reader — a free download from Adobe):
Annual Florida Roundup - Cost varies on registration, accommodations, and meals
Our group is now collecting its own 7th Tradition. Send checks payable to Susan G. to P.O. Box 166, Sunset Bch CA 90742. Contributions cover maintenance fees of the website and P.O. Box, excess is sent to World Services. We also have paypal donations on our 7th Tradition Page.
The S.L.A.A. Fellowship Wide Service Prison Outreach Committee is in need of more penpals to write to prison inmates. This can be just a letter every month or two and provides a great service to BOTH the prisoner (for recovery) and YOU (12th Step). If interested, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
The #SLAA Online Group meetings operate on United States time meaning that we observe Standard Time and Daylight (Saving) Time. Standard Time begins the last Sunday in October. Daylight Time begins the first Sunday in April. The exception to this are the three Eleventh Step Meetings on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday at 10pm Sydney Australia Time. Those three meetings observe the time changes of Australia.
Anonymity is the spiritual foundation of all our principles... Please remember: who you see here; what you hear here; when you leave here, let it stay here.
For the purposes of recognition and security in the room each Member shall choose one nickname upon entering our community for the first time. This name must be a name that is not being used by another member in the room.
It may come to your attention later that the name you have chosen is already in use, and you may be asked to change your name by an Op.
Lastly, we ask that each Member use their name and refrain from constant name changing, in order to avoid confusion to others and to the ops who have to verify identities in the room. Name changes due to afk, or disconnect are allowed. Only in compelling circumstance may a name be changed otherwise.
New members will have a month to choose a nick name.
Please help us to spread the word to local S.L.A.A. meetings about online recovery:Back to Top
“F2F” is an acronym we use online to mean “face-to-face” or local meetings.
Two of our traditions state:
5) Each group has but one primary purpose — to carry its message to the sex and love addict who still suffers.
11) Our public relations policy is based on attraction rather than promotion.
Since we do not advertise, one of the best ways to share the benefits of the #SLAA Online Group is by making announcements about our online group at your local S.L.A.A. meetings.
Some meetings have a time that announcements may be offered or submitted ahead of time in writing. Sometimes this is done more personally before or after a meeting by mentioning how easy and beneficial participation in our group can be. If a person is interested, you can simply write down our website address for them to take home.
