Unofficial Trustee Agenda – Louisville 2019


The Louisville Agenda is being compiled via categories. This rolling agenda shows the items as they are added; however, the final version will show similar items grouped together. The Chairman of the Board of Trustees, may elect to pick specific items of the agenda to be heard out of the order in which they will be arranged, irrespective of when they were submitted. The final agenda and all other necessary documents will be available under the Meeting Materials link.
Please consult your Confidential Trustee Listing to contact any of the Trustees that have listed items in this or any other section. Let them know your thoughts about these items as they will be able to revise their items without limit and resubmit them up until 60 days prior to the next conference when the agenda will be finalized.

1. Combo Book Change

Page 14 of the Yellow Book. First paragraph. Include “bowling leagues”.

Current Version: Does this mean I can’t even participate in a little penny ante game or a world series pool?

It means exactly that. A stand has to be made somewhere and Gamblers Anonymous members have found the first bet is the one to avoid, even though it may be as little as matching for a cup of coffee. This includes Internet gambling, bingo, the stock market, commodities, options, buying or playing lottery tickets, raffle tickets, flipping a coin, fantasy sports or entering the office sport pool.

3. Committee Related

Create an ad-hoc committee tasked with formally defining the relationship between Gamblers Anonymous and Gam-Anon, including, but not limited to, whether our relationship with Gam-Anon should be more formalized and subsequently addressed in the Guidance Code, Group Handbook, and any other GA-approved literature. This committee will then present its findings and recommendations to the Board of Trustees as a whole
