SA Google Resources: Gmail, Googledrive and more

Googledrive, Gmail  and other Google resources are used widely by SA internationally. Google operates on a single logon, giving access to a large range of google resources. Intergroups and groups in Australia and New Zealand mostly use Gmail, a Google product. This gives  access to Googledrive and other Google products, accessible thru the menu icon images04i2pb7o

Googledrive allows for the sharing of files within the SA international community without the need to copy the original file. File owner grants permission to other Google accounts, based on gmail address, to view or edit/organize.  Googledrive can be a useful storage place of group/intergroup minutes, meeting formats, financial records etc

Some SA ANZSB files have already been made made viewable to Intergroups. Check the “shared with me” tab of your intergroup/group Googledrive. These files or folders of files can then be incorporated into the intergroup/group Googledrive structure. Contact the ANZSB by email for more information.

SA International Service Structure

The Australian and New Zealand Service Board (ANZSB) acts very much like a Regional Assembly (see below) with representatives from Intergroups. There are not yet enough groups to create a ANZ Region and send a Delegate to the General Delegates Assembly, the international fellowship-wide policy making body.

The International SA Service Structure from the SA Service Manual page 7:

SA Groups and the Sobriety Definition

We have a solution. We don’t claim it’s for everybody, but for us, it works. If you identify with us and think you may share our problem, we’d like to share our solution with you (Sexaholics Anonymous, last sentence, page 2).

In defining sobriety, we do not speak for those outside Sexaholics Anonymous. We can only speak for ourselves. Thus, for the married sexaholic, sexual sobriety means having no form of sex with self or with persons other than the spouse. In SA’s sobriety definition, the term “spouse” refers to one’s partner in a marriage between a man and a woman. For the unmarried sexaholic, sexual sobriety means freedom from sex of any kind. And for all of us, single and married alike, sexual sobriety also includes progressive victory over lust (Sexaholics Anonymous, 191-192).

The only requirement for SA membership is a desire to stop lusting and become sexually sober according to the SA sobriety definition. Any two or more sexaholics gathered together for SA sobriety according to SA sobriety definition may call themselves an SA group. Meetings that do not adhere to and follow Sexaholics Anonymous’ sobriety statement as set forth in the foregoing Statement of Principle adopted by the General Delegate Assembly in 2010 are not SA meetings and shall not call themselves SA meetings.

Addendum to the Statement of Principle passed by the General Delegate Assembly on July 8, 2016.
