Fifth Group Conscious Meeting Planning

Post by Josh »

Preliminary Agenda for the next meeting:

Agenda is now written from the standpoint of problems to address instead of proposed solutions. This is to promote unity and for everyone to be on the same page.

1. Approve meeting minutes from Feb GC meeting.
2. Does voting process in WhatsApp follow Consensus or Majority for approval of proposals. We will use consensus to approve this agenda item due to the, "what came first, the chicken or the egg" problem.
3. Call for volunteers to fill the 3rd Admin seat.
4. Newcomers to the WhatsApp group are not aware of the etiquette or social norms when they enter, even though those are in the group description.
5. WhatsApp has many useful aspects as an outreach and social platform. As our group has grown, it has become more social and it makes it harder to find those needing outreach. The increased social aspect is not always recovery focused too(people talk about their day or share information that isn't always linked to recovery), so members are expressing concerns. Some have even ledt due to the sheer number of posts to read. Do we wish to do something about this?
6. GC does not have a set monthly date to meet.
7. Where to store these meeting agendas and meeting minutes.

Proposal for #5:

Create another WhatsApp group for outreach only.

People who are struggling can do a post of "is anyone available for a chat" and then the conversation goes to PM or phone call. The person, when they receive support, will make another post to let the group know they got support.

Members of this group will, potentially, get more pointed attention, as requests for needing to chat can appear to get drowned out in the current, more social, WhatsApp CGAA group.

No socializing would be permitted in this group. It would be purely for people who wanted to chat with others.

Nothing will stop people from doing the same kinds of requests in the current WhatsApp group.

Proposal for agenda item #6:

Have the GC meet the 1st Sunday of every month. (This does not conflict with the other business meetings)

It would be really nice that a date would be set in a place where it can easily be found again.

I have heard complaints about using the forums for storing the meeting agenda and meeting minutes.

I have added an agenda item to bring up the problem at group conscious and decide upon a place to store our group conscious meeting notes and future agendas.

I have also heard complaints about how I have scheduled the meetings, which is why we have agenda item #6. Problem is that I cannot make weekend meeting times.

I have led as group conscious chair for some time, perhaps someone who CAN lead it on the weekend would be willing to take up the role I cannot fulfill any longer.
