Opened the meeting with a moment of silence followed by the Serenity Prayer.  The 12 Traditions, H&I Purpose and the Clarity Statement were read.

General Report

We had four members become panel leaders to different facilities.  Our Purpose is at work! Thank you to all of our Panel Leaders!  We currently have openings in nine facilities (mostly clearance required), we still need your help.  Our proposals at the July Area meeting were tabled until the August meeting and given to Groups for discussion.  These are the original proposals:

The policy adhoc committee brought two changes to the subcommittee:

1.  To change GOASCNA Guidelines IX Hospitals and Institutions K.1 (to read): 1. No single individual can hold more than one administrative position at one time.  As necessary, individuals may be appointed, by the Chairperson in agreement with the Vice Chairperson, to administrative positions that fulfill a particular need. 

2. To change GOASCNA Guidelines IX Hospitals and Institutions L. (Chair and Vice Chair requirements) 1 & 2 (to read): a) Active participation in the H&I Subcommittee and GOASCNA. (removed RSC H&I Subcommittee).

These policy changes were discussed, consensus was reached and these are to be presented at Area.


We elected a new Secretary for H&I.  Thank you for your support!

Concerns or Needs

We had a member upset because of gossip.  We addressed the situation, apologized and made the retraction to the former minutes.

The former chair of H&I discussed a need for an H&I presentation at the Lake County Jail in Tavares.  They need support.  I'd like to raise this at Region if ok with Area.

Upcoming Events

Our next H&I meeting is Tuesday, August 20, 2013 at 7:00 pm.  Orientation begins at 6:30 pm.

In Loving Service,
Lisa R., Chair
