Deadline to vote is Friday at midnight

As many of you know, there is a fellowship wide vote in progress, ending in 48 hours – May 10, midnight EST.

If 75% of all registered groups vote for these changes, they will pass. If not, there will be no change. Concept Two (p.121 of D.A’s 12, 12 and 12) outlines this requirement of the Charter.

Would you check with members or groups that you know of, so that the fellowship can complete this vote?

The question which are being voted on are as follows:

  1. With permission from A.A., the Conference proposes to revise the D.A. Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions by replacing the words ‘he’ and ‘him’ with the word ‘God’ and to rephrase Tradition Two as follows: ‘For our group purpose, there is but one ultimate authority – a loving God as God may be expressed in our group conscience. Our leaders are but trusted servants; they do not govern.’
  2. The WSC Literature Committee moves that the Conference update Tradition 11 to strike out the word ‘and’ between ‘radio and films’ and to add at the end ‘television and all other public media’. 

    The Tradition would therefore read:

    ‘Our public relations policy is based on attraction rather than promotion: we need always maintain personal anonymity at the level of press, radio, films, television and all other public media.’

Thank you for your participation in helping to determine the future of D.A. The results will be available later this year – after the voting closes on May 10th, 2024 at midnight.
