new business meeting for early meetings

Post by Scott »

Ideally, meetings are run by the people who frequent them. Most of our online meetings have historically all been run by one group (the OOMG) but we've always wanted to have two separate business meetings/groups, one to run the early European meetings and one to run the late North American meetings. We would have done it long ago if we had enough people and energy. Today, we seem to have plenty of both.

Let's start a new business meeting for the group that runs the early meetings in the 19:30 and 21:00 Central Europe Time slots. One good possibility for business meeting time would be 20:30 CET / 2:30pm EST on the first Sunday of each month. The group needs a name, something like the European Group of Gaming Addicts (EGGA) or some recovery name like the ODAAT Group (One Day At A Time). They would decide on their service positions like business meeting chair and two GSC representatives, and their quorum (the minimum number of people at the business meeting needed to make a decision.)

What would be the other effects of this change? EGGA (I'll call them that for now for convenience) would have their own subforum for business discussions. I imagine that they'd copy the OOMG format and etiquette and then modify them however they see fit for their own EGGA format and etiquette. Or they could create their format and etiquette from scratch.

For now, finances would continue to be handled the same way, all costs paid from a common pot of contributions collected by GSC, OOMG, and EGGA. At some future time, each of those three groups will have their own treasury so that members can choose to which one to contribute. The details of this change belongs in another thread, but in any case each group will get the money it needs to take care of its expenses. GSC is likely to pay for Zoom and the forum, so probably OOMG and EGGA will have little-to-no expenses.

Proposal: Hold a new business meeting at 20:30 CET on the first Saturday of each month on Mumble, with the purpose of running the 19:30 and Sun/Tue 21:00 CET meetings (and any other meetings started by this group.) The name of the new group will be EGGA (European Group of Gaming Addicts). The chairperson for the first six months will be Tamir and co-chair will be Scott. The etiquette and meeting format of the OOMG group will be copied and used initially, but modified as the EGGA sees fit in the future. There will be a new subforum created for this group.

Voted on April 5 at 20:30 business meeting. All ayes, approved.
