The Annual Business Conference (ABC) is the once a year event at which S.L.A.A. members and other members of our service structure convene to conduct the Annual Business Meeting (ABM).

Traditionally, the ABM refers to the in-person business conducted during General Assemblies over a four-day period. Due to COVID-19, a virtual one-day portion of the ABC/M is organized this year to conduct the essential business of the Fellowship and elect three members to the Board of Trustees and confirm any appointments for vacant positions.  Nominations for the BOT are being accepted until June 28, 2020.  There will also be an opportunity for floor nominations at the Virtual ABM.

The 2020 Agenda will be addressed at the 2021 ABC/M.  Motions and IFDs can still be submitted Here.
