Opened the meeting with a moment of silence followed by the Serenity Prayer. The 12 Traditions were read.
Panel Leader Reports: Big George received a glowing report from La Amistad and that the facility is very happy with our presentations. There was a discussion about the "easy clearance" that was noted on the meeting list from Bridges of America. Skinny fielded the question as our Panel Coordinator I. There was also a discussion about one member "changing his mind" toward the end of elections. He had already been voted in to an open committment and we still had to contact the new facility to find out if they were available on the day of the week he was available. The committee worked through this and he was able to get a start-up kit for either committment before the next H&I subcommittee.
Concerns or Needs
I went to Central Florida Area of NA's Area Meeting on April 27, 2014. I encouraged their H&I Chair to come to our H&I subcommittee meeting. I did pass on our H&I orientation manual which they supported and are going to purchase for their H&I. It was reported once more to me that they do not have enough H&I members to fill the open slots that we have on our facility list. However, he did take a copy of our facility list (open) and I have asked him to communicate with GOASCNA H&I if they have any members fulfill any of those committments. He said they would.
I also spoke with Gilbert from our Region. Central Florida Area has asked them for an H&I presentation to be brought into the Recovery House. I told Gilbert that the reason that we hadn't dealt with them in the past (my understanding) is that they bring their clients to meetings. Central Florida Area keeps pushing Gilbert that there is a need there so he has asked me, vice-chair (or someone else from H&I willing), Bobby May (ECF H&I Chair), James W. (PI), to please arrange a presentation to go to the Recovery House and set up a H&I presentation for Central Florida Area to bring a meeting into the facility.
I also informed the subcommittee that we would be helping out with the Learning Day activities and it looks like we have a lot of support from H&I.
Next Meeting is: May 20, 2014 at 7:00 p.m., 2565 E. Kaley Avenue, Orlando
In Loving Service,
