“The GSR Committee is represented by the Chair. The Chair will draft a GSR Committee monthly report which only includes the GSR Committee’s motions that were passed and not passed and other group conscience votes and will send this report to the members of the GSR Committee and the General Service Board. The Chair’s name will be listed on the report. This report is the voice of the GSR Committee and the UA meeting groups.” (Motion Passed Unanimously with 12 Yays; 0 Nays; 1 abstention)

Motion 2

“The March 19, 2017 Motion regarding ‘Primary Purposes of the GSR Committee’ read:


‘One of the primary purposes of the GSR Committee will be to establish a monthly list of concerns of the GSRs to be conveyed to the GSB via the Liaison at the monthly GSB meeting. The GSR Committee will have its own self-determining agenda.’

This motion AMENDS the language of the March 19, 2017 motion so it now reads:


‘One of the primary purposes of the GSR Committee will be to establish a monthly report to be conveyed to the GSB and the GSR committee.” The GSR Committee will have its own self-determining agenda.'” (Motion Passed Unanimously with 7 Yays; 0 Nays; 1 abstention)
