Closed meetings are for ITAA members only, or for those who have an IT problem and “have a desire to stop using internet and technology compulsively.”
Open Meetings are available to anyone interested in ITAA’s program of recovery from addiction. Non-addicts may attend open meetings as observers.
Each meeting has a chairperson. If you arrive to a meeting and the chairperson is not present, anybody can volunteer to lead by using the meeting script.
If you will be joining a meeting for the first time, you can take a look at our script to get a sense of how the meetings work. Our meetings are very simple; each meeting has a chairperson who leads the meeting, and the meeting lasts approximately 1 hour. We start by going around and introducing ourselves by first name. Then the chair and other volunteers read some opening statements, before we open the meeting for members to share. There is no requirement to share, and it’s okay to just listen. You can share how you are doing, introduce yourself and what brought you to ITAA, or ask questions. We do not offer suggestions or comments in response to other members’ shares; we simply listen gratefully and non-judgmentally. At the end of the hour, the meeting will end with some closing statements, after which members usually stay on the line to share more, ask questions, or exchange contact details. If you are looking for a sponsor, this is a good time to ask other members if anybody is available.
