Intergroup Meeting Minutes – October 2015
Meeting starts 6:32
Jeigh opens with 12 traditions
Intergroup Chair – Bryan
Treasurer – Bernice
Hotline – Brandon
Website – Sean
Secretary – Jordan
Treasurer’s Report – Asking committees to submit budgets. The 300 dollar check was from Hour of AA 7:30 because they were clearing out their account.
Website – “Pretty much same damn thing” have not been able to transfer the chair position and still unable to log onto site. Problems with logging on. As soon as we can log in and pass on the position, setting up a new phone number for logins would be helpful.
Hotline – 5 calls for volunteers, 40 for meeting info, 1 unanswered. Was unable to print new meeting lists but will bring back next month. Sorry about being gone for last 3 months.
Central Office – Craig is home but had lung taken out and is starting to recover. Having a call sheet for just women helps. The CD and workbook has been made available. Hour of AA was unknown to who they were. Drew was here last month because Neil was gone but their was a question over social media and the answer was the workshop on social media and anonymity from district 22. There will be a upcoming election for central office board.
Corrections- The new 2016 budget was put in but there will be a budget that will carry over for next year. There is a lack of volunteers for corrections and Lincoln is doing a poor job in helping those that are in facilities. Corrections needs people to fill in positions and that if there is no volunteer at sine places there is no meeting. Need help everywhere. Call facilities if interested. (minutes are at the end) Corrections meetings are at 6:00 first Tuesday of the month at the meeting place upstairs.
