Service Matters - March 2023

GSA Podcast Launch

At long last, the GSA Podcast is ready to launch. Podcast subcommittee members of the Communication Committee have been working steadily to produce hour-long episodes featuring abstinent guests, topics related to getting and staying abstinent, and personal stories mixed in. We hope to post a new episode monthly and have a few "in the can" nearly ready to go.

Our first podcast is called: Welcome to the GreySheet Podcast - an interview between two grateful GreySheeters. We will have these podcasts published at our website

Launch Date: March 12, 2023 @ Committees Connecting

Time: 12:00 pm EST

This Facebook group is NOT the meeting before the meeting; it’s not the meeting; it’s not the meeting after the meeting. It is Any GreySheet-related Announcements? during the meeting.

  • Post group information like a new meeting, changing the format of your meeting, needing trusted servants for your meeting.

Town Halls

GSA World Services will increase the length of our three quarterly Town Halls to up to 90 minutes starting April 2023.

This will allow time for the main purpose of the Town Hall – fellowship input on GSA World Services issues – as well as the special topic of the quarter, World Service update, and intergroup presentation.

  • Special Topics of the Quarter

  • Plus Treasury report and Announcements if time allows

Ideally members submit questions in advance to  or to if questioner wants to remain anonymous. This will allow the Board of Trustees to be sure we have the information available at the Town Hall.

If questions do not relate to GSA as a whole, the chair will refer the questioner to their sponsor, their group, or their intergroup. World Service suggestions will be referred to the appropriate World Service Conference committee or board.


2023 GreySheeters Anonymous

8th World Service Conference Meeting

October 22nd, 2023

9:30am to 2:30pm ET, Via Zoom


Registration for our 8th World Service Conference meeting will open the first week in March 2023. It is a very powerful time for the growth of GreySheeters Anonymous. The World Service conference committees are working diligently on guidelines and policies to support our fellowship. 

If you are an ISR or represent a group as a GSR, please consider registering as a delegate for our World Service Conference meeting so your group will have input on the proposals presented at the WSC.  All of the information will be in the link below. We will update the information regularly! There will also be delegate training as we get closer.

We have made some exciting changes for 2023. World Service Specialists, i.e. the Service Matters Coordinator, can be voting members at the World Service Conference. The total number of registrants will determine the number of specialists spaces available. Those elected by the board or a committee as a specialist should register as well. 

We are working diligently as a committee and would welcome 1 or 2 new members. 

This will be our third Zoom WSC meeting! It is very exciting to see your fellow abstinent service-mongers and communicate the information to your groups or intergroups!

SAVE the DATE and we’ll see you then!
