BYLAWS COMMITTEE NOTICE ON MOTIONS: HOW TO REGISTER TO VOTE

At the February intergroup meeting, those with at least two years of continuous abstinence in FA who were committed to a meeting affiliated with EAI or its chapter prior to Covid-19, will be able to vote on each motion. A “yes” vote would indicate the merits of the motion are substantial enough for EAI to propose the motion to the World Service Conference. A “no” vote would indicate the motion does not merit discussion at the 2021 WSBC. 

Those who meet the qualifications stated above and would like to vote at the February intergroup meeting need to register by the end of the day on Tuesday, January 26. In order to register, click here. If you have any questions about the registration and voting process, the EAI IT Committee has set up conference calls to help you walk through this process. Please see the meeting information listed below. 

There are three conference calls scheduled to give all fellows the opportunity to ask questions and get clarification regarding the three motions. Since the January meeting presented only a high-level overview, during these meetings members will also be able to express the reasons they feel any of these motions should or should not move forward. This includes sharing historical perspective on this topic so that members feel fully informed to make a decision regarding each of these motions.

Motion Discussion Conference Calls:

  • Friday, January 15: 7pm to 8pm EST
  • Saturday, January 23: 4pm to 5pm EST
  • Sunday, January 24: 8am to 9am EST

EAI stands for Eastern Area Intergroup, and it is a larger service body with the purpose of supporting meetings throughout a large geographical area. Now you can learn about how EAI can help your meeting by watching an Orientation Video or reading through an EAI Newcomer Orientation Guide. The orientation includes an overview of EAI, the services it provides, its committees, and ways that FA members can get involved in Intergroup.
