1. Additional nominations for 2014 open positions
There were no nominations. We still need a Vice Chair, Liaison to Minnesota South Area, Event Sales, Public Outreach, Group Liaison, Alateen, Archives, Public Outreach, and Institutions.
2. Report on literature sales at Gopher State Roundup
About $2,500 of literature was sold. All of the volunteers showed up except one. The table was not open Sunday as there were no volunteers.
3. Update on Hospitality Suite at Fellowship weekend
We need someone to coordinate Friday night dinner and Saturday breakfast food preparation and volunteers. There was discussion on what this entails. A member volunteered to cover food prep but would like help. The chair will send email to ask for volunteers to staff the room during the meals.
4. Update on calls to groups to verify information and invite Intergroup Representatives
The volunteer doing this was not present. A member will speak with her to see where she is at with this and if she needs help to finish it.
5. Hazelfest August 2nd, 2014 at Hazelden
The chair will be working at the booth and would like another volunteer or two to help. Volunteers receive free entrance to the event with live music
6. Update on conversation with Griggs Midway Management re flasher
The chair spoke with them and they gave her a different number to call if there is ever another incident like this. The new number will call all security on duty to get help so someone can respond immediately.
7. St. Paul Intergroup inventory
The chair passed out a printed inventory and we plan to add questions from the inventory to the agenda every month. It is requested that everyone personally answer the questions and come prepared to discuss them.
8. Questions/Concerns/Other Business
There will be an Intergrup workshop on Saturday June 14 for people who are interested in being Al-Anon Speakers.
A member brought a request from Fellowship Club for help. They are looking for a beginners type meeting to be hosted by Al-Anon weekly on Saturday at 1pm for their group participants (this is the family support side of Hazelden). They would like this to start ASAP.
