New Wednesday night
Wednesday, February 12th at
9:00 PM ET, was an historic moment for Gamblers
Anonymous. It marked the official launch of the
Gamblers Anonymous Telephone Meeting Conference Call
platform, approved by the Board of Trustees last
fall in Orlando.
As the first such meeting, the
expectation is to follow through with yet another
way of utilizing Unity Step 5, to carry the message
of hope to the compulsive gambler who still
suffers. This platform will instantly make the
resources of Gamblers Anonymous available to people
who need to get to a meeting but can’t for many
different reasons. This will include people who are
unable to find transportation to a regular meeting,
people who are unable to leave their homes due to
physical restrictions, and people who live too far
away from actual meetings, just to name a few.
Each one of these meetings will be ‘open
meetings’, but only compulsive gamblers, those who
believe they have a gambling problem at their first
meeting, and those who have a desire to stop
gambling, will be allowed to speak. The meetings
will be run by a rotating schedule of at least 2 out
of 5 approved meeting administrators who have met
the Guidelines for these meetings.
You can read about the details of
this meeting on the Trustee website, which is where
the meeting information on all such meetings will be
listed, until the Gamblers Anonymous website is
reprogrammed to display this information.
meeting conference calls were NOT designed to
replace a physical meeting and it will be repeated
regularly that the attendees are encouraged to go to
a physical meeting. Telephone meeting conference
calls are meant to fill in the gaps between such
meetings. We hope you can attend to be able to
reflect your experience to others in the program who
might benefit from this type of meeting.
More information is available on the Trustee
There you will find the meeting grid, showing
open times for others to start telephone meeting
conference calls. Additionally, you will find a
listing of Frequently Asked Questions.
The information for this first telephone
conference call is as follows:
Wednesdays at 9:00
PM ET until 10:30 PM ET
The system will open at 15 minutes
before in an open forum
The dial in number is 1-712-770-4160.
