Calling all votes!

The next World Service Business Conference (WSBC) is coming up in May 2016 in New Mexico. The WSBC is where members’ voices can be heard on topics ranging from the wording of the policies and bylaws to the use of social media and virtual meetings. Now is the time that votes from individual meetings are being collected to inform the upcoming business meeting’s agenda.

All meetings are encouraged to review the items up for consideration, gather members’ votes, and report them back to our Intergroup’s WSO representatives. Items to be voted on can be found here:   Bylaw Amendments , New Business , Questionnaire Summary

Once your meeting has reviewed and voted on the proposed items please email the results to: by Saturday, February 13th, 2016.

Mail Issues

You probably already know we have had some email issues lately on the intergroup list, including another one tonight. I believe the root cause is too many invalid, old, or otherwise no longer needed email addresses on the list. If you received an email similar to the one below and wish to be added back to the list just respond to the email without changing anything and the system daemons will do the rest.
