Motion from troy re Hearing of Op Application in absence of applicant

Motion: To allow for just this GC BM, hearing of an Op application from Sofia in writing, without applicant’s presence at the meeting.

Motivation: Sofia is in Europe. 9pm USA ET GC BMs are not possible for her because of timezone shift. The next scheduled 12 noon USA ET GC BM in May specifically clashes with her job.

MOTION FELL

 

Op Application - Sofia

Applicant not present - Op application automatically TABLED

 

Old Business

None

 

New Business

 

Motion from NancyD re Discussion of Op Guidelines

Motion: That the discussion of the Op guidelines & specifically an Op's admitted relapse with regard to reinstatement as an Op, be brought before the group at large & that a determination of how best to move forward regarding the Op's status be put to a vote by the membership.

Motivation: After more than a month of discussion among the officers of SLAA Online & keeping a member's status on hold, the Officer group has not been able to reach decisions regarding the following:

- action to be taken regarding the Op

- formulation of Officer group reply to the Op

For info: The discussion mentioned in the motion above may or may not include quotes from previous Officer communications regarding this issue.

MOTION WITHDRAWN
