>We discussed the Message of Hope "situation".

>We discussed why the Subcommittees don't get an actual vote on the Area floor:

    Leon: stated that technically it's a group conscience and we aren't a group;

    Patti: stated that maybe we don't vote because we vote in our home groups;

    George: stated that we should be allowed to vote because we have 20-30 people, larger than most home groups.

>Gilber, Region H&I Chair is going to start bringing a meeting into the Transition House in Kissimmee on 192 on Saturdays.  Although George and Bryan can't do weekends, George is going to try to chair once a month, hopefully Bryan can do the same.
