Opened the meeting with a moment of silence followed by the Serenity Prayer. The 12 Traditions were read.
General Report We held our subcommittee on May 15, 2018 at 7:00 pm. There were 28 members present, including 4 new members. The new members all attended orientation as well.
We are currently taking in 14 presentations into 8 different clearance facilities and 14 presentations into
12 different non-clearance facilities with a combined total of 29 panel leaders with commitments at this time.
We currently have 9 open commitments at clearance facilities and 14 open commitments at non-clearance facilities. Please keep in mind that most of these facilities have multiple presentations on our listing as some facilities request more than one weekly meeting from our H&I subcommittee. With that being said, only 4 clearance facilities and 7 non-clearance facilities are not being serviced at all at this time. We are hopeful that this can be changed in the near future as more and more new members come to our subcommittee and former members return.
2 Clearance Forms and one Letters of Recommendation have been submitted since our last subcommittee meeting. We are placing a literature order in the amount of $288.98 at Area to replenish our stock.
Elections We will hold nominations in June for all of our admin positions; followed by election in July. We elected three new panel leaders to 6 month commitments.
Concerns or Needs We need more NA members with clearance to be support to our existing panel leaders at Osceola, Orange and Seminole county jails and other correctional facilities so that there are more speaker options and panel opportunities for these facilities. Please spread the word that just because someone has a record, this does not guarantee denial for approval by the County Volunteer Coordinators.
Upcoming Events Our next meeting will be held on the third Tuesday, June 19, 2018 at 7:00 p.m. with orientation being held promptly beforehand at 6:30 p.m. at United Against Poverty located at 150 W. Michigan Street, Orlando, FL 32806.
In Loving Service,
Joe P. Vice Chair
