ABC 2015 Item

Social Media Report Written and Submitted by Martin C., Trustee

After discussion at 2013 ABC, and in the year before ABC 2014, the Social Media Working Party agreed, and proposed to the WSO Board of Trustees, that there be an amendment to the wording of Tradition 11. This is to further protect the principle of anonymity in respect of Soclai Media (facebook, twitter etc)

We proposed that the words

“and all public media of communication”

be added after the reference to ,

in respect of the preservation of the principle of anonymity.

2015 Annual Business Conference

Committee Update for September Teleconference:

We have had responses from several groups who are interested in hosting the 2015 ABC.  I am in the process of communicating with them. 

The Board has discussed moving up the date for the request for proposals to allow enough time for them to be translated.  It is my understanding that we didn't come to a consensus, so I will pursue this further.

Respectfully - Mary Jo L., 2015 ABC Board Liaison

 

Seeking a 2015 ABC Host Committee

On behalf of ACA as a whole, our Annual Business Conference has the principal responsibility for the maintenance of our world services, and it traditionally has the final decision respecting large matters of general policy and finance.

The ACA WSO Board of Trustees has not determined the location of the 2015 ABC, which will be held the weekend of April 25-27 next year.  We are asking ACA groups and Intergroups to consider playing host to the 2015 ABC.

If your Group or Intergroup has any questions about hosting the ABC or would like to submit a bid to host the 2015 ABC, please send an e-mail with the subject line "2015" ABC" to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .   We will be very happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have to help you consider hosting the ABC in your city.

The Host Committee will have total support from the WSO.
