01 Nov News from the ISO — November 2017
The above diagram depicts the service structure of the SAA fellowship that has been in place for many years. In this structure the member groups and the intergroups are not part of the ISO and both bodies are autonomous (Tradition Four). It is important to keep in mind that the ultimate authority of the fellowship resides in the member groups (at the base of the diagram).
In this structure the Regional Caucuses elected ISO Board of Trustees and Literature Committee members for their region. The member groups and the intergroup elected the delegates to the Conference. The delegate Conference met once a year at the ISO Annual Conference and voted on the business that was brought before that body. The Trustees, Literature Committee members and the office staff of the Corporate Office also have full voting rights during the business conducted at Annual Conference (AA Concept IV).
Next month we will look at the impact on the service structure as a result of the Bylaws changes.
