It was realised very early on that it was important for the group to still be able to put money back into the service structure. Therefore, a PayPal account was set up with the purpose of donating 100% of the proceeds of the group into Belfast Area.
A PayPal account can be set up by a group member (probably the treasurer) and directly linked to the group’s bank account.
As you might see within our scripts is that we have chosen to mention tradition 7 more than the usual amount. This is due to many groups being shut down with no access to funds to keep their premises. Therefore, by ensuring members are aware of the need for contributions has never been greater to ensure the groups get the help they’ll need when this is all over.
There have been many discussions surrounding the anonymity aspect of video conferencing being used for meetings.
In response to this an additional statement was added to all meeting scripts to ensure all group members were aware of the limitations to their privacy. All members are given the option to protect their privacy but not connecting video to the meeting and having an alias instead of their name if required.
It is the conscience of this group that we inform our members of the anonymity and privacy limitations to the Zoom platform and allow them to make their own decisions accordingly.
