Conference Committees

GreySheeters Anonymous World Services Conference Committees work year-round to prepare motions for the upcoming conference and execute decisions made at the previous conferences. To be a voting member of a committee, you must be a conference delegate (GSR, ISR, or Trustee). Any GSA member with 90 days of back-to-back abstinence can serve as a volunteer on a committee.
