What is the Annual Business Meeting/Conference (ABC/M)?

Delegates and non-Delegate members of the Fellowship Wide Services Conference (FWS) meet once a year at the Annual Business Meeting to conduct the business of the Fellowship.

There is valuable information about the Annual Business Meeting (ABC/M) in the Conference Service Manual (CSM). It is highly recommended advance reading for anyone who attends the ABC/M. A wealth of information has been compiled over the years to help people understand the terminology and how the Conference is conducted. The front part of the CSM is a good starting point.

Any Intergroup - any collection of 2 or more S.L.A.A. meetings in the same locality may be represented by one or more Delegates at the Conference. If your Intergroup or area does not have a Delegate, bring it up at a meeting, volunteer, and attend the ABC/M! Attending the ABC/M can give you an opportunity to get involved in service at the Fellowship-Wide Services level

Besides conducting business, being present at the ABC/M also means meeting other members of S.L.A.A. – an opportunity to make new friends with common interests and have a great time. If you are interested and need more information than is provided here, email Fellowship-Wide Services with 'ABC/M Question' in the Subject Line.
