Agenda for SLAA Online Business Meeting - April 2nd, 2024 at 9 pm US Eastern Time in #slaa2

 

Serenity prayer

 

*Our Code of Ethics: 

To keep each of our meetings safe and productive, we:

Communicate our views honestly and respectfully on issues raised, especially controversial ones. We do not raise our voices, stoop to sarcasm, cuss, or try to bully others into our way of thinking.

Are tolerant when we differ. We share our meeting time fairly so that each of us has an equal opportunity to comment.

Are willing to put our egos aside when our opinions do not win favor with others. We are able to let go, trust our group conscience, and strive for the “unity and harmony that our Fellowship requires for the successful accomplishment of its primary purpose. Our service structure exists to support us” (per concept 6, from our draft ‘Framework for Living’) and works for the greater good.

Encourage one another by doing our part to maintain a safe and supportive atmosphere.

These points have proved to be our blueprint for success. We ask your cooperation in continuing these traditions as we work together in the coming months. Thank you for contributing your time and talents. Your Twelfth Step work is deeply appreciated!

Motion from troy re Approval of SLAA ABC/M 2024 Delegate and non-voting Observer

Motion: To approve SLAA Online Group (Intergroup) sending and financing the following voting Delegate and non-voting Observer to the SLAA virtual ABC/M August 8th-10th 2024:

Voting Delegate at $190 - Lotus

Non-voting Observer at $100 - troy

Motivation:

Group Conscience has previously approved sending and financing an annual SLAA ABC/M Delegate. This year the ABC/M is virtual online and has substantially lower registration fees, so we have the financial possibility to even send non-voting Observer/s.
