Motion from NancyD re sobriety requirements for Speaker Shares

Motion: Sobriety requirement for SLAA Online members giving Speaker Shares is 3 months continuous sobriety with working knowledge of 12 Steps & 12 Traditions.

Motivation: A reasonable sobriety requirement for SLAA Online speakers (identical to our requirement for OPs) will help ensure that speakers have some experience, strength & hope to share about our program.

 

Motion from NancyD re Officers:

Motion: "No member of the officer group of SLAA Online should be in a current or ongoing sponsor & sponsee relationship with another member of the officer group."

Motivation: To avoid the impression of nepotism, which is defined as 'the favoring of relatives or personal friends because of their relationship'. Much like placing personalities before principles, a sponsor & sponsee relationship within the same officer group could demonstrate a propensity for favoritism.
