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 ,

               “ Press, Radio, TV, and Films”,

in respect of the preservation of the principle of anonymity.

All proposals for the 2015 ABC were due on November 15th.  Thank you to all meetings who participated in this part of the process.

The process is that Board members do a WSO Analysis on each and then they go to the Translations group.  Most of them are already being translated and the remaining ones will go to that group this coming week.

We have 15 unique proposals.  They will be sent to all groups and Intergroups in January for voting.  

ABC Location:

We do not have a firm at this time.  There were several groups and Intergroups interested in doing this, but so far they have not worked out. 

Unless someone else lets me know of a new location to consider this week (email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.), we do have a backup plan.  That is to hold it in Long Beach near the Distribution Center.  The WSO Staff of special workers would then be responsible for the planning and execution of this event. 

Respectfully submitted,
