Minutes of the July 14, 2009 Meeting

The meeting Convened at 7:00 PM with a moment of silence followed by the Serenity Prayer

Introductions and Roll Call
Present were the Vice-Chair, the Speaker Chair, the Inside Literature Chair, and an Acting Intergroup Representative who served as Acting Secretary

Reading of Concept VIIThe Trustees have legal rights while the rights of the Conference are traditional.

Notable News
The Vice Chair requested ideas on a facility for the annual Intergroup Gratitude Night to be held Nov. 14th. Several sites were suggested.
The Speaker Chair has monthly speaker opportunities in Hudson and Hastings. During discussion, the possibility of providing a simple evaluation or feedback card might help members improve their sharings. Another possibility suggested would be to host a workshop for members interested in speaking or have a few members share how service has enriched their personal recovery.
The Speaker Chair will be taking over the meeting at the Regions Alcohol and Drug Abuse Program (ADAP). A similar opportunity would be for Al-Anon members who are parents of ‘kids’ in treatment a few doors down from ADAP on Thursday evenings.
The Inside Literature Chair reported that WSO is still unable to fill our order for Alateen Newcomer Packets. Discussion – putting together a similar version from available materials or purchasing some from Minneapolis AIS.
It was noted that we have a new server for our phones in the hope that we will have better service at less cost for our phone and computer needs. A new transfer system is in place for call forwarding.
The Vice Chair asked if those who took call lists to update the meeting directory would please bring them next month.
Discussion and update on the possibility of moving the office or combining more services with Minneapolis to better serve declining group numbers.
