Online meetings can be either closed or open. This article explores the differences between these two types of meetings and how to determine which type is right for you.

Members also correspond by e-mail. The group leader welcomes each member by their screen name at the beginning of the hour, reads the Serenity Prayer and ends the meeting with a “Goodbye.” Almost every bi-monthly topic is discussed in this chat group.

Have you tried Meetn, the new online meeting platform?
It’s turning out to become a decent alternative to Zoom and to the other major platforms.

The Online Service Chat Group

Our Let’s Chat virtual support groups are held monthly* on Sunday and Tuesday each month. Each group is designed to help people cope with the physical and emotional effects of Ehlers-Danlos Syndromes.

During the meeting participants can collaborate on content in Chat and Spaces, share links and files, use bots to help with tasks, and use powerful search across conversations, emails, and documents. Groups require registration to attend, and a reminder is sent out one day before the group takes place.

The Online Service Business Meeting

Online business meetings are becoming increasingly popular as they offer a variety of benefits including cost savings, increased accessibility and improved collaboration. However, it is important to remember that these meetings are not without their drawbacks. For example, the lack of facial expression means there is a higher chance of misinterpretation and misunderstanding. Moreover, it can be difficult to maintain high security levels for the information shared during an online meeting.

It is also essential to prepare the attendees for the meeting before it begins. This can be done by posting reminders on the organization’s social media pages or sending them in emails. It is also recommended to have a rehearsal session to familiarize everyone with the online meeting tool before the actual event. It is also helpful to have all relevant files ready before the meeting starts so that they can be easily shared with all participants. It is also advisable to send the meeting files and information in the follow-up email after the online meeting has ended.

The Online Service Literature Committee

The Literature Committee, also known as CLC, is a vital part of the service structure of Codependents Anonymous. It creates new printed literature and works to help groups provide them. Each piece of CoDA conference endorsed literature undergoes a lengthy process of brainstorming, writing and rewriting within a subcommittee of CLC members. The committee tries to make every word count while heeding group conscience and our Higher Power’s guidance.

Besides working with the General Service Office to make sure groups and individuals have access to Conference-approved pamphlets, books and audiovisual material, the committee encourages groups to use literature in their meetings and service events. The committee also offers a variety of services to its members, including group pamphlet racks and a literature catalog.

The Literature Committee’s catalog features all available AA literature and service items from the Conference and GSO. It allows groups to place large bulk orders for AA World Services Conference-Approved literature and receive a potential cost savings by combining multiple group orders together.
