If you’re interested in serving as a WSC member, please read Document 7: Service Positions-Description of Responsibilities and the World Service Conference (WSC) Member Manual.

FA meetings should not set aside funds to send WSC members to the Convention. If your meeting is collecting money for this purpose, please read Document 8: From a Traditions Perspective for WSI’s position regarding this practice.
