Members Present: 25

Location: 2565 E. Kaley St

Opened the meeting with a moment of silence followed by the Serenity Prayer.  The 12 Traditions were read.

General Report : We are currently taking 17 meetings/presentations into facilities, and have 8 open facilities.  Three of our members have submitted  clearance forms to go into Orange Co. Jails for approval.

Report : There was an unapproved H&I presentation being brought into The VA Hospital by an NA member.  One of our Panel Coordinators contacted the NA member as well as the Facility, and it is no longer meeting.  Since the problem has been resolved, there was no need to send out a letter to the Facility.  We have 2 members who have stepped up, and are willing to facilitate this commitment at the VA.  We have added an additional Facility to our list: The Transition House located in St Cloud, if anyone is interested in carrying the message into this facility by all means come out and be a part of H&I.

Elections : We are still looking for an H&I Vice Chair, as well as a Panel Coordinator1 to serve on our subcommittee.


Concerns or Needs : If you are aware of NA members taking non approved H&I presentations/meetings into facilities, please notify the chair or any other H&I member, so that the chair can send out letters to these facilities to informed them that they are not under the auspices of H&I, we have no knowledge of how the meetings are being conducted, and we can not ensure that the principles of our program are being upheld.  We are still in need of people to be of service and carry the message of recovery into facilities who don't have access to regular NA meetings.


Upcoming Events : None
