III. Treasury, DCM, ADCM Reports (Lou)
A. Treasury Report: Lou reported a balance in the checking account on 6/1/21 of $2,893.27. There were contributions of $436.94. There was a $10.00 expense this month for the District Meeting rent. The balance on 6/30/21 was $3,320.21. The savings account has a balance of $504.43 on 6/1/21. Interest earned this month was $0.01. The end of the month balance was $504.44. Lou also mentioned that by the end of July the treasury will again have a surplus of funds and asked for suggestions about distribution. The primary suggestion offered was funding for GSRs or possible Alternate GSRs to the Assembly in Tonapah. Funding to PRAASA was also suggested.
B. DCM Report (Libby) Libby mentioned the $7.34 project that is going on during the month of July. Each member of Alcoholics Anonymous is encouraged to donate $7.34 to the General Service Office. This would give them enough funds to operate for the year. (Donations were down during the pandemic as well as literature sales.) Donations can be made at aa.org.
Libby also explained what is meant when we talk about Tonopah. The area has assemblies twice a year to discuss the business of AA. These are traditionally held in Tonapah, NV because it is centrally located between Reno and Las Vegas. Registration for the Fall Assembly to be held September 10-12 is now open on-line. It is a hybrid meeting so it is important to register early so that plans can be made for the amount of food needed for those attending in person. Registration is $15.00 per person.
