Motion from Irishbelle, Bonnie, Joe & Jilll re Sponsorship Topic Meetings - APPROVED
To change the scheduled Topic for Sunday 4:30 pm regular meetings in #SLAA to: Sponsorship Topic Meeting
These meetings, moderated by an Op, will consist of a format which will include Sponsorship-related topics for open discussion shares.
Purpose: Sponsorship is an all-important aspect to an individual's recovery. Therefore, an important need has been voiced by the SLAA online membership to create a forum that openly educates and discusses sponsorship questions and concerns. On behalf of this membership planning committee, we would like to present this formal proposal for this new group to be introduced into our regular meeting forum. The goal is to introduce a format that consists of topics as they relate to sponsorship, education and supportive needs of individuals. This group, facilitated by an OP, will consist of a format which will include topics for open discussion.
Examples of topics: What is a sponsor? What is the difference between an online sponsor and a face to face sponsor? What are boundary issues in sponsoring? What is a recovery partner? How does having a sponsor and recovery partners help me in my recovery?
The proposal is that this group will meet every Sunday at 4:30 pm. Starting Sunday May 6, 2018.
