Service Matters - October 2022

How Important is WSC 2022 Participation?

Are you a delegate to World Service Conference 2022? How important is your participation on Sunday October 23rd?


Our 2018 census estimated that there were approximately 1200 GreySheeters in 24 countries around the world. We will never be a mass movement! Lest you think that we undercounted, this total includes estimates by GSRs and ISRs for the number of their members who did not complete the census form. It also includes approximately 50 people who consider themselves GreySheeters but not members of GreySheeters Anonymous.

Now we believe that it’s possible GreySheeters Anonymous has grown to approximately 1500 members in 30 countries.

These 1500 members belong to 133 registered groups. And yet only 32 groups have registered delegates to the conference. With nine ISRs and nine Trustees, that means 50 delegates will make 15 different decisions that affect all 1500 GreySheeters Anonymous members.

Some of these decisions are consequential – like what kinds of events will we endorse and make available to the world via our website? Who gets to vote on matters that affect GreySheeters Anonymous as a whole? Will we make our literature available to Spanish speakers?

Fifty delegates are the group conscience for the fellowship as it exists today and for those suffering compulsive eaters who may find us in the future.
