  • Duke from UNL was unable to attend meeting. We decided we will go ahead and start the meeting and hope to spread it quickly. We’ll work with Duke via phone/email to find location, but have suggested a noon meeting. Luke agreed to take on chairing that meeting as we get it started. We’ll also spread the word to individuals working in downtown Lincoln or on campus. (we’ll plan for an August start — more to come) We’ll work on the format next meeting
  • 2 guests from Seward — brought a question: How do we help young people want to keep sticking around? Good conversation. PICPC agreed to pass a phone list around in meetings to get some young people contacts to share with the district.

Alt Del. called him to discuss the meetings that were out of date on the website. Sean updated what he could (can’t update the PDF from Central Office)

District reports:


Old Business:

Out of date meeting lists

Intergroup agreed to take updating it on, but would like DCMs to participate. Bernice will ask them to come to July’s meeting so we can go through the existing meeting lists together. If meetings need to be visited to confirm they are in existence, we’ll divvy them up among those in attendance. Then we’ll have an updated list to submit to Central Office by the end of August, in time for their new printing in September.

  • Maybe this will be a  yearly thing?
  • Lindsay will include a note in with her treasurer’s message saying to contact us if there are meetings that have closed that they are aware of.

Discussion of monthly service meeting

Tabled until next month.

Next month, Bernice will provide the final proposal to take back to groups

New Business:

Discussion of whether or not to include sober volleyball filer on Agreed that it should not be added.
