SAA online meetings are open to everyone. They are free to register and are held through the ISO of the SAA. These telemeetings have three stages and are conducted by a committee that includes representatives from each member organization. A code of conduct is also in place to ensure that all participants are treated with respect.
Open to everyone
One of the best places to learn about SAA is at a meeting. These meetings are held in person or online and are a great way to make new friends, find resources for recovery and test the waters.
|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.
There are a few differences between the standard meetings you’ll see in a brick and mortar group and those you’ll find on the web. For example, there are open meetings, closed meetings, and hybrid meetings. Some meetings are open to men, women and students, while others are reserved for the cis and transgender crowd.
Some meetings are held in a single room, while others will have you bouncing around to the next meeting. A hybrid meeting will have you online for the first part of the meeting, then meeting up with others in person.
You’ll be able to see and hear most of what the other attendees are saying, but you won’t know who you’re talking to until you actually meet them. In general, it’s a good idea to be polite and respectful of others’ privacy.
The SAA (Sex Addicts Anonymous) community is a vibrant one. This is most evident by the numerous telemeeting meetings being held around the clock and the many workshops and seminars being held throughout the year. In order to keep abreast of all of this activity, the SAA Technology committee has created a spreadsheet for the uninitiated. One of the most exciting facets of the organization is its ever expanding list of members. A large part of the committee’s mission is ensuring that each and every member can enjoy the benefits of a healthy and vibrant group. For example, each and every participant has access to the latest in technology, ranging from state-of-the-art laptops to the latest in wireless headsets.
Another important aspect of the group is the level of anonymity it affords. Unlike some organizations, there is no need to be put off by a troll on the other end of a phone call. Besides, this is the sort of group where the vast majority of members are at their best and most relaxed.
Code of conduct
All SAA members and attendees of SAA online meetings are expected to comply with the Code of Conduct. Violations of this code may result in expulsion from SAA events, barred from participating in other SAA programs, or other actions.
The SAA Code of Conduct is based on the principle of equal treatment. It provides guidance and information about appropriate behavior and prevention of misconduct.
When a member or attendee is found to have violated this code, he or she can appeal to the SAA Executive Committee for reconsideration. The SAA Executive Committee may also ban a person from SAA events, award competitions, or governance activities.
When a member or attendee reports an alleged violation, he or she must describe the incident in detail and state the specific conduct that is alleged to have been violated. Information may be submitted orally or in writing.
If a student or RSO is charged with a violation, he or she must promptly respond to all written correspondence. He or she must also meet with the Director of SAA.
telemeetings available through the ISO of SAA
If you are interested in SAA meetings, there are a number of different options. You can attend a regular meeting, a hybrid meeting, or even a telemeeting. Depending on your needs, there are a variety of options that can help you achieve your recovery goals.
Regular meetings are the core of SAA’s recovery program. They provide a safe, welcoming environment for individuals to share their stories, talk about their experiences, and learn about recovery from a group of peers. It is important to find a group that meets your specific needs.
You can find local face-to-face meetings on the SAA International website. These are listed in the calendar for each month. To attend, you must register with the SAA office in your area. The format may vary, depending on your region. Generally, the meetings will carry free pamphlets that will help you with your recovery.
There are also telemeetings available through the ISO of SAA. Telemeetings are typically electronic meetings, although some are face-to-face. Meetings are classified as either open or closed. Open meetings are open to all, while closed meetings are only for SAA members.
