Concepts Study Ad Hoc Committee

Purpose Statement

  • The Concepts 2 and 6 Ad Hoc Study Committee was authorized by the 2022 Annual Business Conference. The ABC’s exact motion was: To create an ad-hoc committee that will study Concepts 2 and 6 and report to the 2023 ABC on possible revisions. Delegates and the fellowship will be notified of the study and invited to join the ad-hoc committee.
  • The following motion passed at the 2023 ABC: We move to request a six-month extension, with a detailed update at the next Quarterly Business Meeting, to complete proposed revisions to Concepts 2 and 6, but to affirm that Concept 2 will define the Conference as the voice and conscience of the ACA fellowship.
  • The following passed at the 2024 ABC:
    We propose a 2 -3 year extension of the time, and an expansion of its scope, of the Concepts Study Group:
    • to refine recommended language for an update to Concept VI to be presented at the next business meeting of the Conference
    • to Include considering updates to other Concepts, and to make recommendations to better integrate the Concepts into the World Service Conference and the World Service Organization.
