Minutes read

Treasurer’s report – See treasurer’s report on website.  Would like to bring up minutes and whether

secretary or treasurer will post budgets on the minutes.  The secretary will post the minutes from the

committees with the minutes (at the end).

Website – Have been able to log on to website. But have not messed around on it yet to figure out what

needs to be done, there are receipts on the site for reimbursements.

Corrections – Still needing volunteers for facilities.  Even for part time volunteers.  Anyone willing to help

should contact the facilities or can contact a representative member of AA to talk to.  Question of having

a flyer put up at central office stating the need for volunteers.

Treatment – There are two budgets set aside for requests for workshop and non-workshop.  Question of

what makes a non-profit for instance, The Bridge.  There is no contact at this moment but there is a

need for a contact for The Bridge.  Bob M offered to be a contact for The Bridge.  Every 2 years a

committee puts on a workshop letting people know what the treatment committee does.  With Bridging

the Gap a person in treatment will sign up and be able to be contacted by a volunteer.  There is now a

appointee rep for the Bridge, Art.

PICPC – See budget report at the end of minutes.

Central Office – Starting to nominate officers for next year and will vote next month.  Raised the price of

chips to add a little more income.  A loss of September but an increase for October.  Questions of 12

o We’ve attended a number of events over the past year and were able to hand out 2 cases (40 Big

events planned for 2016, one being our bi-annual workshop at the Independent Center.

Pamphlets $200.00

o We continue to expand the number of events we attend, or groups we speak with. We’ve also been

creating packets for clergy and doctors and handing them out personally, or at events. We’ve decided to

expand and hand out literature to military, police and fire, so well need to order more pamphlets for

those, along with keeping our inventory stocked.

Printing costs/Supplies/Miscellaneous $150.00
