Opened the meeting with a moment of silence followed by the Service Prayer. The 12 Traditions & 12 Concepts were read.
Again, I humbly thank this committee for the vote of confidence allowing me the honor & privilege to continue with the 11th Convention of Unidos en Recuperacion, the Spanish convention of the Greater Orlando Area.
As we look to get into the swing of things, the first order of business was to get signed into the Unidos bank account.
I am waiting for coordination & availability of both the ASC Chair & Treasurer to make that happen. I am also requesting from this body, the bank statements for last year’s Unidos committee to help in preparing the new budget.
Although, each group should be autonomous by our Traditions & not every meeting makes announcements – we would like to encourage all group GSR’s to really get the word out to ALL meeting participants the attraction to service – not just the same generic announcements – a challenge for you to do something different to help support UNIDOS as well as ALL SUBCOMMITTEES needing support. There really are enough addicts to go around & be of service in this area. Be our voices, connect more with members & help us be heard. Flyers for April Unidos meeting will be passed.
Unidos en Recuperación general meeting was held Sunday March 5th, 2017 at Prince of Peace, 1515 S Semoran Blvd., at 4pm with 5 people present. Ice cream, fruits, topping, snacks & beverages were available for everyone present before the meeting started. Show up for the next meeting to see what kinda treats we will have. Come find out.
Meeting opened at 4pm – a moment of silence asking for all members to reflect on their involvement, thinking about who they serve and why, followed with the SERVICE prayer, followed by the Readings of the Twelve Traditions and Twelve Concepts.The meeting was held in both English & Spanish.
Chairperson’s welcomed all to experience unity through service to NA thru this Unidos en Recuperación 11th Convention Committee. The Vice Chair was excused for a family emergency out of town.
Attendees were asked to give a brief intro of themselves & possibly why they came today? Or their interest in service?
To refresh or familiarize ourselves again, we read a this very pertinent part of
Unidos en Recuperación Convention Policy.
The Unidos en Recuperación Subcommittee will hold an annual convention.
PURPOSE OF CONVENTION
1. Provide a suitable celebration of recovery
2. Provide the addict the chance to experience our message in their own language and culture and find the opportunity for a new way of life.
3. Be financially responsible
4. Minimize the expense of those attending the convention.
Open floor topics were-
1. How to attract more support from our area for service & participation in this committee & fundraisers,
2. Unidos policy guidelines about annual convention, when should we have this next convention,
3. Consideration of a different meeting time (what’s available with this church).
4. Question & answers period
I handed out folders & paper n pens for member’s ideas & participation for comments, questions or concerns, which were quite productive for our purposes of doing different things to gain & attract support from the fellowship of The Greater Orlando Area. We will bring these ideas to the Convention committee meeting next month & subsequently this ASC body.
Announced the next Unidos Sub committee meeting is for Sunday April 2, 2017 – 4 pm-6 pm at
Prince of Peace 1515 S Semoran Blvd, Orlando 32807.
6pm - Closed with the serenity prayer.
