GreySheeters Anonymous

Approved Service Structure

This service structure is essential to our primary purpose - to stay abstinent and to help other compulsive eaters to achieve abstinence. The three-part service structure is a simplified version of the service structure of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and will consist of:

Part 1: Registered Meetings of GreySheeters Anonymous groups who each elect a General Service Representative (GSR).
  • GreySheeters Anonymous groups meet weekly (usually) for members to share their experience, strength, and hope on living in the solution of GreySheet abstinence and the Twelve Steps of GSA.
  • These regular meetings help us to carry the message to the compulsive eater who still suffers.
  • A description of the requirements to register a meeting, including guidelines for the phone meetings and "outposts" are available on the GSA website at Meeting Group Resources
  • A description of the role of the GSR is available on the GSA website at Service Position Guidelines.
Part 2: Area Intergroups of all the registered GreySheeter's Anonymous groups in an Area.
  • Area Intergroups provide services to their GreySheet groups by addressing issues that affect their Area, such as meeting lists, phone hotlines, literature sales, contacts with professionals, etc.
  • These services help the groups carry the message to the compulsive eater who still suffers.
  • The GSRs represent their group at the Intergroup meetings and elect an Intergroup Service Representative.
  • The proposed Intergroup Areas, including the phone meeting Intergroups, are available on the GSA website at Intergroup Areas.
  • A description of the role of the Area Delegate is available on the GSA website at Service Position Guidelines.
Part 3: World Service Conference of all the Area Intergroups in the world.
  • The Intergroup Service Representative represent their Intergroups at the World Service Conference and serve on WSC Committees that develop services, policies and procedures for GSAWS.
  • Intergroup Service Representatives also approve the activities of the Board of Trustees by voting on proposals from the other committees and the Board at the Service Conference.
  • The Board of Trustees provides services to the GreySheet groups and the Area Intergroups by:
    • Addressing issues that affect all GSA groups, such as our relationship with other Twelve Step fellowships and dealing with professionals and the media
    • GreySheeters Anonymous website
    • Literature
