January 13, 2019
“This we owe to GSA’s future; to place our common welfare first, to keep our Fellowship united. For on GSA unity depend our lives, and the lives of those to come.”
4 PBIG Trustees and Officers
3 Attendees (one carrying a vote regarding the motion about WSC fund disbursement)
Motion made, seconded, and passed to Accept the Treasurer’s reports as posted on the website.
Motion made, seconded, and passed to Accept the minutes from the previous IG Meeting as posted on the website.
Motion made, seconded, and passed clarify the process of electing trustees at the April Intergroup meeting.
Motion made, seconded, and passed that The GSA Phone Bridge will use any funds collected for attendance at the 2019 WSC as follows:
- Send two ISRs (to be selected by the groups from among the GSA Phone Bridge Trustees – as IG officers).
- Disburse the remaining funds equally between any elected GSRs who will attend to represent their groups.
NEW TOPIC: GSA Phone Bridge-related announcements. Are IG-related announcements too long (e.g., marathon announcements; IG trustee elections; WSC conference attendance announcements)? Chairperson clarified that marathon announcements were written by a group of people and voted as group conscience for how to prepare for Marathons.
NEW TOPIC: In preparation for the WSC, do we want to hold weekly meetings to inform any interested members in the numerous motions to be voted on at the conference. Kathleen H. would be willing to meet with any interested members on Friday mornings 6:30 am to 7:30 am on the IG phone number and pin.
Those present agreed that this is a good way to begin preparing for the WSC. Concerns about accessibility were raised for west coast folks, as well as the idea of recording the meeting. Options will be considered.
If you have additional new business please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any new items you would like to discuss at the IG level. Only items that affect the phone bridge are discussed at the IG level.
Close with the Responsibility Pledge & the “We” version of the Serenity Prayer at 6:03 pm.
“I am responsible…when anyone, anywhere, reaches out for help I want the hand of GSA always to be there. And for that – I am responsible.”
