Meeting held 3/31/17

Opened meeting at 7:08 pm with a moment of silence followed by the Serenity prayer and reading of the PR Statement. 7 members present.  Read minutes from previous meeting.

Old business:

We discussed having a 30 second spot on PBS and UCF TV.  We are to try and make a list of contacts for UCF tv.  A member said he would find contact person.

We are creating materials for future presentations.  Make binder with Pull Tabs, Sheriff presentation, Health Dept. presentation, list of IP’s to use for presentations, etc.…Members to bring binders and dividers next meeting.

Treatment centers:  Look on na.org and read in the PR handbook the section on doing presentations for treatment centers.  We will discuss our findings next meeting.

The Sheriff’s presentation went very well.  They were very receptive and took lots of notes and had lots of ideas how we can all help each other.  We are waiting on them to hear back from their higher-ups on how we proceed.

New business:  

Sheriff’s presentation follow-up:  The NA business cards have come in and a member will call the contacts and let them know they are here and see if they have heard anything yet.  Once we get Orange County working we will attend the Monthly Sheriffs meeting.  All of the Sheriffs and Police Cheifs meet once a month and we will be able to present to them and hopefully make even more of an impact.

List of Hospitals and Home groups:    A member to continue plotting emergency rooms and home groups on Google Maps.  

WE talked about generating a QR code to use in the emergency rooms.

Members  to produce a flyer for the PR Subcommittee to bring to distribute at GOASCNA.

Pull tab project:  We will do pull tab presentations at different home groups during their business meetings to try and enlist help in placing pull tabs.  Members  to present to Believing In Miracles, and A Train to Somewhere.

Meeting adjourned at 8:30pm’ish


In Loving Service,
