Post by Scott »

1. Opening prayer/affirmation
2. Approval of previous minutes. Mar 28. viewtopic.php?f=4&t=861
3. Reports, if any.
3a. GSC report
3b. New meeting leaders report.

4. Separate business meeting/group for the 19:30/21:00 CET time meetings.
Proposal: Confirm that the EGGA business meeting exists and has taken responsibility for the 19:30/21:00 CET time meetings.

5. Anniversary meeting
Proposal: The Saturday May 15 speaker meeting at 9:30pm EDT will be a celebration of CGAA's 7th anniversary. We'll have two speakers, one who briefly shares about CGAA history, and the other who shares their personal story of recovery in CGAA. The topics will be gratitude and the CGAA fellowship and program.

6. Confirming phone-related format changes decided by the committee on Zoom accessibility

7. Approving prayers in the format viewtopic.php?f=4&t=749
Three separate topics:
A. To adjust the wording around higher power to be inclusive of all higher power concepts, from "Higher Power, grant us the serenity…" to possibly "Through higher power we seek the serenity..." or "With higher power may we find the serenity…"
B. To officially approve of the suggested prayers in the meeting format.
C. To consider choosing one prayer/affirmation for the ending.

8. Reading of steps and traditions
9. Issue about content of shares in meetings: Talking about the problem rather than the solution.
viewtopic.php?f=4&t=755
10. Issue about the 10 p.m. group conscience meeting to move to zoom.

Attending: Jeff, Eric, Scott, Shmully, Gina

Justin has resigned as our GSC rep. Thanks for your service!

Quorum is five people present but now that EGGA exists, our attendance will be lower. We still need to make decisions. So we're going to make preliminary decisions that can be confirmed or reversed once we have a quorum.

2. March meetings are approved. All ayes.

3. GSC report: GSC is discussing a possible name change to Gaming Addicts Anonymous.

4. Separate business meeting/group for the 19:30/21:00 CET time meetings.
Proposal: Confirm that the EGGA business meeting exists and has taken responsibility for the 19:30/21:00 CET time meetings.
Approved. All ayes.

5. Anniversary meeting
Proposal: The Saturday May 15 speaker meeting at 9:30pm EDT will be a celebration of CGAA's 7th anniversary. We'll have two speakers, one who briefly shares about CGAA history, and the other who shares their personal story of recovery in CGAA. The topics will be gratitude and the CGAA fellowship and program. Julie and Scott will find speakers. Eric will host an informal gathering before the meeting starting at 9pm EDT.
Approved. All ayes.

6. Confirming phone-related format changes decided by the committee on Zoom accessibility

Jeff volunteers to revise what has been done so far. We agree that a single format for both Zoom and Mumble is more manageable than maintaining two formats in a single forum post.

Proposal: That Jeff type up the changes (suggested in the document), making clear which parts are for Zoom or Mumble meetings via text and format, and posting to the OOMG format post. (This includes an announcement about the anniversary meeting.)
Approved, all ayes.
