May 9, 2021 GSC Minutes

Post by Scott »

Attending: Jeff, Johanna, Luis, Tim, Ian, Scott

Due to connection problems and low attendance, we only had quorum long enough to consider this one agenda item:

1. Asking for groups to vote on a possible change to the English terms of our name from "Computer Gaming" to "Gaming" so that the name in English would be "Gaming Addicts Anonymous" or GAA. The change would not necessarily affect the translated name in other languages as each one should use the term that is most inclusive and accurate for that language.

Proposal: That after two minor changes, we will reconsider Jeff's write up next month. (1) That if any groups of non-English meetings decide to abstain from this decision, they are not counted toward the 3/4 quorum. And (2) that the purpose is clarified, that we are only proposing a change of the term “computer gaming” to “gaming” in the English language and it has no effect on CGAA’s purpose or the terms used in other languages.
