>H&I is currently bringing 30 meetings and presentations into 28 facilities. We still have 14 facilities waiting for a meeting/presentation.
>We have filled 7 open facilities since July 2014! Way to go!
>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.
>Panel Coordinator 1 Report (Clearance facilities) read by George: Greg F. got approved and is waiting for fingerprint check to come back.
>Panel Coordinator 2 Report(Non-Clearance facilities) read by Amanda: If a Panel Leader can't make their meeting/presentation they are to contact the Panel Coordinator who will try to get it filled.
