The 2022 Senior World Service Conference was held virtually on July 30 and great appreciation is extended to all WSC members and trusted servants who helped make this event a success. The WSC Summary Packet will be ready for distribution this fall but, in the meantime, a brief overview of the motion results is published on the Member Site for the fellowship to review now.
Motion One: Move that changes be made to the World Service Conference Charter (WSC Charter), most recently revised in July 2021, to reflect and clarify service structure decisions made at previous World Service Conferences—mainly clarifying that the North America Conference be the Senior Conference throughout the Charter. The motion passed with 18 in favor, 5 opposed, 0 abstaining.
Motion Two: The motion was amended to state: Move that the following change be made to the World Service Conference Charter (WSC Charter), most recently revised in July 2021, to adjust the attendance status of members from outside North America: Article II. Composition C. Representatives from other countries may observe the Conference without a voice or a vote. The motion passed with 20 in favor, 3 opposed, and 0 abstaining.
Motion Three: Move that: The WSC approve an update to the sentence in the introduction paragraph of the WSC Charter from: “This charter is an informal agreement between all S-Anon members and groups and its World Service Office (WSO).” to: “This charter is an informal agreement between all S-Anon groups and its World Service Office (WSO).” The motion passed with 18 in favor, 2 opposed, and 2 abstaining.
2023 WSC motion due date: The annual motion due date is February 1. This will give the World Service Conference Committee, the Policy and Service Communication Committee, Literature Committee, and the Finance Committee adequate time to review the motions to ensure they are in order in time for distribution in May.
