30 April sista dag för ABC Delegat Registrering! 

Hello Member Meetings, Intergroups and Regions,
Please note: April 30 is the last day for Delegate Registration to the May 6 & 7 Annual Business Conference (ABC).  Even if your group has a Delegate registered from the 2022 ABC or if your group has or will elect a Delegate this year they need to be registered by going to The Conference Page at https://adultchildren.org/conference/ or by using the direct registration link here.
Delegates from 2022 ABC whose term is still active need to re-register/register for the 2023 ABC.
We, the ABC Committee co-chairs, are excited to inform you that the draft Delegate Binder, including a draft of the ABC Agenda (also attached to this email), is now available on the conference web-page at https://adultchildren.org/conference/

This web-page is where information for the 2023 Annual Business Conference (ABC) will be posted.  The Binder is a living document which will contain the information necessary to support delegates in their service and which is useful to all members. It includes the agenda, yearly reports and upcoming motions the ABC will discuss and vote on. The Binder is complete with the exception of some documents that are not yet in. Those are noted in the Table of Contents with ”Coming Soon” and will be added to the living document as they arrive.

Some documents may be posted in their draft form. This will be noted and they are subject to change. We wanted to get the information out to everyone as soon as possible and add/update documents as they come in. WSO Committee reports will not be read during the ABC to conserve valuable time for discussion.
Below are some sections which contain items that will be discussed and voted on at the ABC :

  • The ABC/AWC Study Group Report – please note the Motion on page 51
  • The Concepts Study Group Report – please note the Motion in Item 6 at the top of page 62
  • The Minutes of the 2022 ABC and the Quarterly Delegate Meetings with links on page 36

Thank you for providing Delegates and Ballot Proposal votes which enable us all, as ACA, to have a true fellowship-wide group conscience!
Together we can do…

in ACA service,
Marcus H, ABC Committee Co-coordinator

The 2023 ABC Is Coming! Please Join Us May 6-7
Dear ACA delegates and observers,
Thank you for your service to the ACA fellowship over the past year. Because of your commitment, we now have a year-round Conference that is providing invaluable guidance to the ACA World Service Organization. Your dedication is greatly appreciated.
The 2023 Annual Business Conference (ABC) will be held Saturday and Sunday, May 6 and 7, from 9 am to about 4:30 pm eastern US. Please note of the important notes and info for the delegates in this letter.
All delegates must be selected by a registered ACA group, intergroup, or region. Even if you attended the 2022 delegate meetings, please contact your group and let them know that they must appoint you or another member to represent them at this year’s ABC. First-time delegates also must be selected by a registered ACA group, intergroup, or region. 
All delegates must submit a new online registration no later than April 30. All new and returning delegates must register for the 2023 meetings at https://adultchildren.org/conference. Registrations for prior delegate meetings will not be valid.

Non-Delegates may listen to the ABC as observers and may register at any time. Information is available at https://adultchildren.org/conference

Please volunteer to serve. The Annual Business Conference and quarterly meetings belong to the delegates. All delegates and observers are invited to consider volunteering for service at the ABC, QDM or on the ABC AWC committee, which supports the ABC. We currently need volunteers at the ABC, roles include meeting timer, tech support, information assistant. Experienced volunteers are sought to serve as a Conference chair or parliamentarian. To volunteer for the ABC, please email abc@adultchildren.org, attend an ABC planning meeting and/or attend one of the training sessions listed below. 

Stay informed. You will get regular updates by email, on Slack delegate channel, and the https://adultchildren.org/conference website. 

Delegate trainings. Training sessions are available April 15 and April 29. Regardless of your time zone, you can get a preview the 2023 ABC agenda and process learn about volunteer opportunities at the 2023 ABC, and in the ACA World Service Organization, See the schedule below my signature. If you can’t attend, recordings will be posted on the website. The information for joining the training sessions will be posted on the conference website.
Thank you again for your participation. The essence of ACA service is that we all work on behalf of the ACA fellowship, as entrusted by ACA groups, intergroups, and regions. The Conference is the voice of the fellowship and guides WSO on broad policy matters. Your work is making this spiritual vision a reality.
Please join us on May 6 and 7 at the ABC. Your voice ensures our world fellowship will flourish and be sustainable. We look forward to serving you and seeing you soon on ABC and joining us in service together,
Charlie H.
