GSR Travel costs

Meetings during 2024 will be held via Zoom. However, if there are face to face meetings, GSR travel costs are normally paid for by the individual group. The mileage rate, if driving, is 45p a mile.  If any group needs assistance towards financing a rep to come to the

intergroup meeting, please do contact the intergroup Treasurer.


Voting at South Coast Intergroup Meetings

We would recommend that all new Board Members and GSRs read the full SCIG Intergroup Bylaws.

Here are some key points about how voting is carried out in SCIG Meetings.

Membership of the Intergroup is made up of:

  1. The Intergroup Board (Chair, Vice Chair, Secretary, Treasurer, Vice Treasurer, National Assembly Rep, Region 9 rep, Website Officer, Public Information Officer & Events Coordinator.
  2. Group Service Representatives (GSRs) from local meetings

Each member attending the Intergroup Meeting has one vote; any other member of the fellowship may attend Intergroup meetings,

and participate, but cannot vote.

Agreement is reached by general consensus wherever possible. Any member may request a specific vote on an issue which will be

decided by a simple majority. 

The process of making a decision is carried out through a member proposing a motion and another member seconding the motion. A

discussion on the merits of the motion takes place before the motion is voted on by a show of hands. The Chair will cast a

deciding vote in the event of a tie, but will not otherwise participate in voting.
