SAA online meetings are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. They usually involve three phases: the first is the planning phase, which is led by an experienced group member who explains the format and etiquette of the meeting. The next two phases are for discussion, where members can ask questions or put forward proposals. The first step in a SAA online meeting is to follow confidentiality guidelines. It is important to keep details of concerns confidential, and it is best to have three-way discussions when discussing differences.
Three stages of a saa online meeting
There are three stages to a SAA online meeting. These stages are generally based on the type of meeting. The meeting begins with an introduction from an experienced member of the group known as a trusted servant, who outlines the 12-Steps of Recovery and the SAA recovery program. The trusted servant also gives participants guidelines for participation.

The next stage involves reviewing the application materials. The application materials are reviewed by a committee headed by a member of the SAA Board of Trustees. Those whose material is approved are invited to submit a full dissertation. If the committee determines that an applicant is eligible, they may ask for identification during on-site registration.
The third stage is the sharing of information. Members should listen to each other’s sharing before sharing their own. If they do share information, they should do so in a manner that is respectful of confidentiality. If a member does not want to share their information, they should signal “*”?” to let the others know.
The fourth stage involves reporting. If there are incidents of misconduct, Attendees should contact the SAA. They can also report it to a third party. However, the third party must have written proof that they have authorization to represent them. Individuals submitting reports on behalf of others should use a form to help them submit the right information.
Rules for appropriate language
The Society of American Archivists (SAA) is committed to providing a harassment-free environment for all members. The Society has an Equal Opportunity/Non-Discrimination Policy and Code of Ethics for archivists. Harassment can include verbal abuse, discriminatory images, or unwanted physical contact. These actions hurt the individual and harm the SAA community. They can discourage participation in SAA events and compromise the exchange of ideas.
In SAA online meetings, there are rules to follow. First, participants must refrain from using language that may be offensive or harmful to other members. In particular, people must refrain from sexually inappropriate private messaging. Also, members are encouraged to keep their emails anonymous. Any member who is caught violating these rules will be removed from the conference or group. If someone feels harassed, they can appeal to the SAA Executive Committee.
Disadvantages of inappropriate messaging
When chatting with others online, be aware of the risks of inappropriate messaging. This kind of messaging can be highly triggering to some members, and can reset their sobriety. In order to protect members, SAA prohibits sexually inappropriate messaging. SAA also protects members’ anonymity. If a member feels threatened or harassed, it is suggested to ask the person to remove themselves from the SAA group.
