Opened the meeting with a moment of silence followed by the Serenity Prayer. The 12 Traditions were read as well as the 12 Concepts. 

General Report

Email was sent out to Google groups as a reminder to see if their homegroup was interested in participating in the 39th virtual area anniversary so far we have participation from  homegroups from the Greater Orlando Area. So far we have over 82 years of combined clean time from all our speakers which we think is pretty cool. Donation was decided on for the Virtual DJ & Flyer was submitted to the website and will be updated with the ZOOM information as soon as we have it available. Our Vice Chair Sassha L notified the committee at this meeting that she will be unable to acclimate to Chair after her service commitment of Vice Chair is up. She is grateful for the opportunity to serve the Greater Orlando Area and her intention to notify the Area in advance so that there is ample opportunity for the Chairperson commitment to be filled once her term is up.

General Report

Phone line

Volunteers Reports: Multiple volunteers reported they spoke with the same woman on several occasions that were currently in treatment in Seminole County, her requests were for things outside of our phone line assistance (halfway houses, counseling, etc.)

Open Floor: Mark briefly discussed an App the SEZF is looking at for Phone line called YAP indicating briefly how it works, has a potential for cost savings versus One box. Liz adds more information can be found from the Regional Web Coordinator’s.  Mary Ann discussed her experience calling an area that uses the platform as a pleasant one, and Cindy reminds us that to consider this would need our Webpage Subcommittee involvement as this platform ties into the BMLT; suggest we mention at Area floor. 

Coordinator Report: Nov calls (85) = 84 English 1 Spanish; Dec calls (101) = 96 English 5 Spanish, States the volunteer list is looking good right now.  Emphasizes the need for the Coordinator 2 position being filled, appreciative of the assistance Greg has been offering.  One Box increase of under $7 looks to be administrative fees.  Reminds Volunteers that when receiving calls regarding outside referrals that their orientation states they can refer to “211” for assistance in Orange County.

Subcommittee Liaisons Reports:

1) Webpage:   reported broken links on site, mainly the Treasure Coast area link directed us to a gambling webpage.  Gave a brief synopsis of what the liaison position for webpage entails.

2)  Activities:  Virtual Area Celebration is Feb. 13, 202, looking for speakers.  Liz volunteers to take over the liaison position for activities.

3.) H & I: Matt C. joined us from H & I.  Discussion regarding the Subcommittees not being listed on the calendar and the difficulty finding subcommittee meeting information for tonight, he found it under ASC meetings tab.  Reported that H & I is now in 5-6 contact facilities, Mary Ann inquired on the contact list of facilities that were waiting for presentations and that this could be an opportunity for H & I.  Mark asked for an updated H & I contact list.  Jenny is concerned about having too many presentations in one facility and how that may affect the relationship as other facilities open up.  Millie attended an H&I event and stated that some facilities in that area were utilizing DVDs.  (Thank you for attending)
