General Report

Good afternoon everyone. Last month at our subcommittee we discussed different areas of our policy to better serve our group, as well as creating an ad-hoc to meet the Tuesday's prior to our monthly subcommittee meeting that would allow members that attend to review our policy in the GOASCNA guidelines and make amendments, clarifications and corrections where our group sees as needed, and bring them to Area to be placed under review by the group. We also discussed the matter of our possible rent increase at our current location due to new management taking over the church. At the time of our subcommittee last month, we hadn't had a final dollar amount decided by the church owners so remaining at our location was the most desired location as to not disrupting consistency in our location and trying to continue to being conveniently centrally located for everyone, but unfortunately I was notified about a week ago that the new cost per hour was going to be $35. That would put us well beyond what we currently pay monthly, so I will continue to look for another location for us that is convenient for everyone currently while considering those in the future would may want to attend. Our vice chair Nikki has done an excellent job of updating all of our contacts for our subcommittee and helping to keep everyone apprised of what is going on in. We currently have 24 open spaces for presentations to be brought in.

Elections

Lia B. was elected into our secretary's position.

Concerns or Needs

Meeting space ideas for our subcommittee starting in january as this month is our last at our current location. Also, we need more people with the desire to bring presentations into the facilities that have open spaces. Our subcommittee brings NA presentations to facilities with limited or no access to outside meetings, so for many of them our group may be the closest thing they have to a message of Narcotics Anonymous.

In Loving Service,
