Attendance sheets to prove that you have been to a required amount of Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous meetings to a court, parole officer, probation officer, Department of Vehicles (DMV) agency or secondary agency, Rehab, sober home or halfway house are always a touchy subject.
If you forge the chairpersons signature there is always the possibility that it will be detected and a problem arises whether it is actually forged or not. All of the entities that require these signatures have to prove it either way. How do they do that in an Anonymous organization?
If someone forges a chairpersons signature on one of these cards, will these agencies somehow contact the chairperson in question breaking their Anonymity? Will a probation officer or member of the court get your home phone number or address from someone? Who would be responsible for this?
The General Service Representatives (GSR) and District Committee Members (DCM) are the ones that coordinate the "Corrections Committees" to go into jails and prisons to bring these members into their groups and most likely they will be looked at to fulfill the card signing. Do they put their names on these cards, or do they get someone else to do it? If the coerced attendant at an AA or NA meeting is sent to the groups by a medical professional, should the signers be required to follow the privacy laws of HIPPA and CFR42 and get a release to verify attendance? If a group votes not to sign court and attendance slips and the District or Area regularly sends Corrections Committees into bringing members in from jails and prisons, should they be de-listed from that area?
Can a court check the names of the signatures on an AA attendance sheets?
