2020 International Convention Virtual Experience Beginning July 1, 2020

Announcement from the General Service Office

“There is good news as we now have an opportunity to bring together many of the
special components that make International Conventions memorable — by utilizing a
virtual platform. For this purpose, we are planning a 2020 International Convention digital
site. Throughout the month of July, the 2020 International Convention will come alive
online to provide a new experience that includes A.A. speakers; a digital “Carrying the
Message Pavilion”; sharing from nonalcoholic friends of A.A. and special guests linked to
our history; a presentation of the 40 millionth Big Book; a new Archives video on the
history of A.A.; an AA Grapevine video created for the Convention, and more.”

Training Video for new TAS Remote Forwarding now available

Attention TAS Volunteers,

If you are already trained on the current remote forwarding system, updated instructions and a training video are now available in the Service Login area of the website.

Here is a direct link to the page: https://interactive.ottawaaa.org/support/ (use the existing volunteer password – it has not changed).

Please check out the instructions as soon as possible so you’re ready to answer calls from home when we change the system mid-June. Until then, keep using the current instructions also available for download on the support page.

If you have any questions, send an email to webmaster@ottawaaa.org. the exact date for the change will be communicated shortly.

Note to Intergroup Reps for regular shift commitments: Please pass this along to people in your group who are already trained on remote forwarding and ask them to please email webmaster@ottawaaa.org to be added to the internal TAS distribution list.

If you are trained and see an opening on the calendar please feel free to take the shift. Please email tas@ottawaaa.org to let our coordinator know and so they can add you to the calender.

You can view the calendar at https://interactive.ottawaaa.org/tas/ 

Thank you for your service!
