Funding home internet access for the Vice Chair
The Vice Chair would like to explore the possibility of St. Paul Intergroup funding home Internet access for her. It would be a convenience in communication. It was suggested that members read p. 39 in the Service Manual prior to the meeting. The Vice Chair will do a cost comparison to see what option would be most cost effective. It will be considered further at the April Intergroup meeting.
