EAI Main Motions: How to Register to Vote
Dear EAI Fellow,

You are receiving this message because your FA profile associates you with EAI (Eastern Area Intergroup). Please read this email in its entirety for instructions on how to register to vote at the February 7th intergroup meeting.

Thanks to each of you who were able to attend the January Intergroup Meeting where members of EAI meeting groups presented three motions. At the February intergroup meeting, those with at least two years of continuous abstinence in FA who were committed to a meeting affiliated with EAI or its chapter prior to Covid-19, will be able to vote on each motion. A “yes” vote would indicate the merits of the motion are substantial enough for EAI to propose the motion to the World Service Conference. A “no” vote would indicate the motion does not merit discussion at the 2021 WSBC. 

Those who meet the qualifications stated above and would like to vote at the February intergroup meeting need to register by the end of the day on Tuesday, January 26. In order to register, click here. If you have any questions about the registration and voting process, the EAI IT Committee has set up conference calls to help you walk through this process. Please see the meeting information listed below. 

If you were unable to attend the January intergroup meeting or if you still have some questions regarding the motions, there are three conference calls scheduled to give all fellows the opportunity to ask questions and get clarification regarding the three motions. Since the January meeting presented only a high-level overview, during these meetings members will also be able to express the reasons they feel any of these motions should or should not move forward. This includes sharing historical perspective on this topic so that members feel fully informed to make a decision regarding each of these motions.
