Day 6 at WSC - by George BH - AD

World Service Conference 2016

Regional Delegate Blog

Day6: April29, 2016

 

Sorry for the late posting for this blog but yesterday was a very long day.  We started at 9:00am and went until about 1:15am this morning.  Trying to recap everything that happened would be almost impossible but there were highlights that are worth blogging about here.

The most powerful thing that happened yesterday was the seating of three new Brazil Regions: Grand Sao Paulo, HOW Region and Rio de Janeiro.  These motions passed all with overwhelming support of more than 110 regions voting in the affirmative.  There were no regions who spoke against the seating of these regions.

Day5: April28, 2016

Day started at 9am in Break-Out Sessions where your RD & AD (RDA) were separated into different rooms. We focused first on Round2 of the Future of WSC. We sat in the section corresponding with our answer on Wednesday: No change? Zonal Seating? A change other than Zonal Representation?   I sat in Zonal Seating. We listed different ideas on how to move forward. The most popular one at my table was to use existing Zones for delegates at WSC, but divide the US into 4 zonal forums: NE/NW/SW/SE. Each Zone would have 5 delegates to the WSC. This would take regional splits/new regions into account and not have them affect the outcome. We then took sticky dots and placed them on our individual favorites. I voted for that one & another one created 7-10zones world-wide with delegates assigned per meeting population within the individual zonal forums.

Being a bit more rested this morning proved to be a great thing today. Since one entire day was eliminated and we have a very full schedule we were playing catch up. More will be revealed about Thursday’s schedule. We first met in the risers for the first of hopefully three entire sessions devoted to the Future of the WSC. World Board member Mary B started the presentation.

Day3: April26, 2016

The day started at 9am sharp with most of the Delegate teams & Conference Participants dragging their tootsies from the long night before. We moved straight into Formal Old Business which should have taken 1 1/2hrs (Formal OB in 2014) but several motions hadnt been dispensed with the day prior yet in Old Business Discussion. So we slogged through them all UNTIL 5:30pm. We missed the entire day of planned presentations/workshops today due to not completing Formal OB on Monday. We were able to have our Human Resource Panel Report tonight after supper.
