Fifth 3-Day Period
During the fifth 3-day session, we voted on three proposals. There were no discussions, and no new proposals were submitted. Fourteen (14) people voted for each of the proposals, and all votes were “I agree.” Therefore, we have three new Group Conscience Decisions:
Results of Voting
Proposal 11.5 OIAA Representative’s Job Description
Add a bullet to the OIAA Representative’s job description to submit monthly anonymous information about GROW to OIAA.
Recommended Language: (new 6th bullet)
Each month, provide OIAA with (1) the number of members in GROW and the number of new members that month and (2) the total amount of sobriety for members who celebrated an anniversary in that month.
Proposal 12.5: OIAA-related bullet – Listkeepers’ Job Description
Add a bullet to the Listkeepers’ job description about providing monthly information about GROW to the OIAA Representative.
Recommended Language: (new 7th bullet)
Provide the OIAA Representative with the total number of GROW members and the number of new members each month.
Proposal 13.5: OIAA-related bullet – Listkeepers’ Job Description
Edit the existing bullet under the Listkeepers’ Job Description to call for Roll Calls of the GROW membership be done only when there are disruptive email issues, as recommended by oso-aa.org technical support. Our Listkeepers will determine when the issues warrant a Roll Call.
Recommended Language (Listkeepers’ Job Description):
Conduct a roll call every year. Determine the need for and conduct a roll call of GROW members when there are disruptive email issues. Our Listkeepers will determine when the issues warrant a Roll Call, and the particulars of when and how shall be left to the discretion of the Listkeepers.
There are no more discussions or proposals. Since there were no “I disagree” votes, there is no need to wait for a minority opinion or a revote.
This was a very easy meeting! There was not one single negative vote even though we had a mountain of proposals. Of course, most of the proposals resulted from the Trusted Servants’ reviews of their job descriptions, making some work for our webkeepers.
The most outstanding action we took was approving the Web Workgroup’s report and proposal for GROW’s website. A huge thanks goes out to the workgroup, which includes Tanya C (Workgroup Leader & Webkeeper), Cheryl D (Webkeeper Backup), Laurie C, Gigi D, and Allison M. They will continue to work on the new website and job descriptions which will be presented to us in the October 2018 Business Meeting.
I will send out a summary of the entire meeting shortly, at which time I will adjourn the meeting.
