Committee Reports:

Central Office Committee: Jim C. – Patient from the Lincoln regional Center called the office and wanted someone to bring him, his 18year medallion. Craig and Gary volunteered to purchase and deliver the medallion. Board members are visiting groups and asking for people to sign up for the hotline.

Lincoln AA Corrections Committee: Ron R. –Balance $408.49, CCJ – nothing new to report, is checking to see about starting a new meeting at LCF. CCCL – the in house 12 step study is going well attendance is up. Drivers no longer need to take an orientation class for taking inmates to outside meetings. All they need to do is fill out an app. And undergo a background screening. Call if interested 471-0740. Joe G. due to abundance of money at Intergroup proposes Corrections Committee put on a workshop with the Treatment Committee, explaining their purposes.

Old Business: What to do with the funding. Ernie voiced some concern about the participation of group reps; the only way Intergroup can help is by the participation and your voice! Others agree but there doesn’t seem to be any solution because we just can’t force attendance. Dick S. for the 1st couple of years says he has never even heard of Intergroup so it seems that it’s not an important part of AA. Mike stated that he was wondering if people just forgot Intergroup existed. Jessie W. mentioned a list of intergroup reps emails and sending out a reminder of when the meeting is coming up just to help eliminate forgetfulness. Ronnie, web chair, says he can have them go into the web site and be added on a list to be reminded. So if anyone is interested in this go to website and add your email.

New Business: Jim C. stated that there was a call from a patient at the Lincoln Regional Center requesting a meeting be brought out to them.

Meeting closed at 7:20 PM, and we all gathered for the Lord’s Prayer.

The next meeting is July 29th @ 6:30 @ Willard Community Center-1245 S. Folsom St.

Pleased to be at your service: Brian D
