  6. New Business:

Motion #1: That ACA WSO purchase a computer (laptop or desktop) for the use of the Outreach Coordinator. (Larry, Phyllis)

Background:Our Outreach Coordinator is stepping down after many years of service. The prospective Outreach Coordinator has been using an iPad to work on the Outreach Committee’s e-mails and the volume of Outreach e-mails and the cumbersome use of an iPad makes the work more tedious.

Motion #2: For the ACA WSO Board of Trustees to provide guidance on any concerns about anonymity and possible Tradition concerns regarding making a video of a Sponsorship workshop by a group. The group would like to put this video, (or audio, whichever is the best to protect anonymity), on YouTube, the ACA WSO website, and offer it directly to other ACA communities to use to promote sponsorship. (Phyllis)

Motion #3 : To have a Literature table at the 2013 ABC with trifolds, pamphlets, Fellowship Texts, and Workbooks for sale using the U.S. Dollar. (Phyllis)

Background: A suggestion was made to provide literature for sale to the attendees at the ABC by having a Literature Table at the conference.
