C. Archives-(Diana M) Ronnie D., our Area 42 Archivist, presented an AA Area 42 Archives display at yesterday’s Founders Day event. He continues – along with the Alternate Archivist up north – Debbie S. – to learn about archival conservation skills and organization of documents and artifacts through workshops and sharing with other Area Archivists from the Pacific Region and beyond. She personally viewed the Archives vault at Central Office and said it is in great shape.
D. H&I – (Kevin L). Kevin reported that he attended the last meeting as a hybrid meeting and he was unable to hear any of the information. He will attend the next meeting in person. It was noted that the treatment centers are now open including detox centers but the corrections facilities are not open yet. A discussion followed concerning H & I funds. There was a large amount of money in their treasury prior to Covid restrictions but now H & I has purchased a large supply of literature. This has depleted their funds substantially. Donations have also slowed down since members felt the need was not there.
