X Old Business – none
XI New Business –
- We will review the AA District One guidelines regarding the minimum sobriety requirement for the District One Grapevine Liaison position. This item was tabled until next month’s meeting. Meanwhile, Janey will continue holding the position.
- Workshop committee needs a new chairperson. Ruthie B. & Chuck T. were nominated and accepted the positions.
- PI/CPC/Accessibilities needs a new chairperson. Kim W. volunteered and was nominated to the position.
- PRAASA will be on Zoom only this March 4th – 6th and needs volunteers for various positions. GSR’s are to report this to their home groups.
- Diana questioned why H&I isn’t more transparent in submitting P & L statements to the districts. Some groups are discontinuing H&I contributions until receipt of a financial report. It was suggested that GSRs report this to their home groups and since all groups are autonomous, continuing to donate to H&I would be up to the individual groups. Marty will contact Kevin L. regarding this H&I issue.
- Marty suggested that Colleen add the heading of ‘Passing the Basket for the 7th Tradition’ to the Agenda.
