This is an invitation to all ACA fellowship members who are interested in what is happening with the World Service Organization. This is the board committee that makes all kinds of things happen with YOUR help, input and 7th tradition contributions, plus income from our literature. It is our intention to be as transparent as we can be so that all may know the process and procedures for our actions.
The meeting is held on the second Saturday of the month at 11:00 a.m. Pacific time USA.
There will also be a teleconference meeting the second week in January to discuss revival of the much-requested ComLine, one hour before the monthly board meeting. Please use the same phone number and access code. We will be meeting for approximately 45 minutes.
At last year’s ABC, January was designated ACA’s birthday month. It’s a wonderful excuse for your groups to organize a celebration. Speaker’s meetings, pot-luck dinner’s, or any sort of celebration may be appropriate. Since we’ve never done this before, we can celebrate any way we like. So get creative and have fun!
Happy Birthday, ACA!
A new women’s step group in Portland will be starting soon. We will be meeting on Sundays from 1pm-2pm in the study room at the NW Alano club. Our first meeting is January 18th, and we will close the group on February 15th.
Intergroup is the regional board of trusted ACA member servants. Each ACA group is allowed 2 Intergroup representatives voted by members in that group’s business meeting. Each Intergroup rep can vote in monthly Intergroup meetings. This is a way to offer service with a very small amount of commitment (1 hour per month).
The Intergroup meets the first Monday of every month at the Alano Club in the small room next to the restrooms at 6pm. The True Selves meeting is right after at 7pm, so it can be a great way to motivate for meeting attendance as well. Come for a visit (no pressure, we promise!) next Monday!
Interested in offering service but aren’t sure about making a commitment? Send an email to email@example.com, and we will put you on a list when we need extra help for special events and projects!
ACA Intergroup elections will be held at our next Intergroup meeting on Monday, January 5. The meeting will be held in the small room next to the restrooms at the Alano Club at 6pm. Come to get a sense of what Intergroup is all about!
