Open and Closed Meetings

Many areas make distinctions between "open" and "closed" meetings. An "open" meeting is typically defined as allowing non-SCA members to attend and/or participate, while a "closed" meeting allows attendance and participation only by SCA members or those who think they might qualify for membership. Remember, the Third Tradition states that, "The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop having compulsive sex," so if you think you might meet that requirement you are welcome to attend a closed meeting. Occasionally, a meeting might be restricted to individuals who make a specific commitment to attend the meeting. An example of such a meeting might be what is called a "committed step study," where members of the meeting agree to a specific schedule when they will meet, as well as to specific assignments for each meeting. If attendance restrictions exist, they should be clearly posted on the area's meeting list. Some meetings may also have special focuses, such as on recovery issues encountered by lesbians and gay men, or on recovery in committed relationships, or on the tool of dating. The special focus of the meeting should be indicated in the area's meeting list. Some meetings have newcomers (or "beginners") as a special focus; these meetings often emphasize how to get started in recovery and provide resources for doing so that are not present at other meetings.
