GSC Agenda for October, 2023

General Service Conference meetings, agendas, and notes.
Forum rules
* The business of the General Service Conference is discussed. We make decisions by group conscience, guided by higher power. Those elected as a trustee or delegate can vote on all GSC matters. GAAIS staff can vote on issues related to their area.
* Back and forth discussion of different perspectives is appropriate. We strive to be respectful of all.
* Anonymity reminds us to place principles before personalities.

:Revisiting motion from last meeting: “Leave it to LitCom to select an editor for now 1. Motion passes with 5 ayes, one nay, one abstention. It was recommended to put this on this month’s agenda for time purposes, as the tradition is to revisit motions immediately when there are any nay votes.
Are there any questions regarding the review of the GSC Charter and 12 Concepts, so GSC representatives are familiar with this part of the fellowship. https://gamingaddictsanonymous.org/wp-c ... r-2020.pdf.
In Feb 2021 when the new website went live, GSC decided to allow new and updated materials on the website. The Literature Committee was tasked with collecting feedback from the fellowship and revising the materials. There are five webpages, one flier, and four pamphlets ready. They are shown in the Literature Committee spreadsheet's "Approval process" tab on https://gaais.org/service-structure. We'll need to review GSC literature approval process https://gaais.org/post4#p4 and decide how many rounds of approval process to do and what pieces to include in each round.
