Was there any discussion at the Annual Business Conference (ABC)of the motions? I don't see this in the minutes......
Is (WSO) directly responsible to those they serve? What is WSO's primary purpose?

Just wondering member of ACA who just started an ACOA meeting in Ojai, CA

Hejsa!

I am Lise, chair of the 2009 ABC.

Yes, there were indeed discussion of the motions.

What you find in this forum is minutes from the Friday. Unfortunately we didn't add minutes from Saturday right away. If you want to read the full minutes, you find them here:

http://www.acawso.or...ABC_Minutes.pdf

Or in the ComLine, that has minutes and reports from ABC.

Be aware that these links may change over time.
