2. Revisiting motion from July 2023 (or deciding to let this go): “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.

3. (OK to postpone until future meeting?) 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 We'll need to review GSC literature approval process and decide how many rounds of approval process to do and what pieces to include in each round.

Any Other Business
4. Creation of a Zoom Security Committee: Scott to present
Proposal: That a Zoom Security Committee is created and that all website committee members, GSC members, and any additional elected ZSC reps from the online groups are voting members. The ZSC is empowered to make decisions about the settings, security, and maintenance of Zoom1 and Zoom2. ZSC does not decide group protocols for troll control, but may help design possible protocols for groups to consider.

All GSC members who have not yet reviewed the GSC Charter and 12 Concepts are requested to do so, in order that GSC representatives are familiar with this part of the fellowship. ... r-2020.pdf.
