Old Business.
Steve reelected liaison to Service Structure Committee with Suzette as backup unamonously.

New business:

Motion to Recommend that the General Service Board Continue to
Allow Special Focus Groups to be Registered as UA Groups and that the General
Service Board Wait to Implement Policy Changes Regarding Meeting Group
Registration Until These Changes Have Been Approved by the World Service

Pursuant to Tradition 4, the GSR Committee recommends that the General Service
Board continues to allow "special focus groups" to be registered in UA and listed on the UA Website, as long as these meetings are open to all UA members to attend.
(Examples of special focus groups are Selling with Serenity Meeting, Spiritual
Marketing for Coaches and Consultants Meeting, Writers in Recovery Meeting,
Musicians and Prosperity in the Arts Meeting, and 50 + Meeting). If the GSB would
like there to be policy changes to existing meeting registration policy, we recommend
that the GSB wait to implement these policy changes on registration until the new
policy guidelines are approved by full discussion and vote at the World Service
Conference, so there is full participation by the UA Fellowship.

Pursuant to UA Proposed Concepts of World Service 1, 2 and 12 and AA Concepts of World Service 1,2 and 12, the World Service Conference is authorized to make policy decisions via
discussion and vote, and the General Service Board is only authorized to administer
these policy decisions . The GSR members and GSB members are the members who
are entitled to discuss and vote on policy matters at the World Service Conference.
We request that the GSB circulate new proposed policy guidelines on the UA website
regarding registration policy no later than 3 months before the WSC.
