Custodians & Leaders

Guidelines for Meeting Custodians

Custodians care for the meeting - it is a Sacred Honor and Responsbility.


Meeting Provisions

  • Arrive a couple minutes early so no newcomer will ever hear an empty line.
  • Invite others to lead the meeting, supporting them as needed (i.e., telling them how/where to access the meeting guides, etc.).
  • Lead the meeting if no one else steps forward.
  • Facilitate a supportive space by muting noisy lines and redirecting the conversation back to Recovery if needed.


Caring for Newcomers

  • Ensure newcomers feel welcome 
  • Invite newcomers to share their email address so they can be added to the group email list.  
  • Inviting them to sign up for the group text.
  • Send newcomer email and group text information to the web master Alena1960@live.com


Provide Call Management

  • Trained and ready to use the Free Conference Call (FCC) call management software, custodians can see how many people are on the call, mute noisy lines when necessary and identify and speak to People in Pain (PiPs),  
  • PiPs are people in so much pain that even though they need this program, as evidenced by the fact that they are on the call, they are unable to avail themselves of the help they desperately need - help that is there for them if only they could speak up and participate in the call.  
  • Custodians speak to our PiPs with the same compassion we would offer a sick friend.  We also protect the call from their efforts to sabotage by using the mute feature when necessary.
