March Assembly Report

 

There were 31 members in attendance,10 districts represented, 5 corrections chairs,and we also had the Area Delegate Teresa.J,attend the meeting,I started the meeting with a moment of silence followed by the serenity prayer,I shared a little bit about myself where I came from how I been keeping myself busy in service work,and how I got to where I’m at today.

 

I talked about how the district’s have been busy,How District; 3 has started a meeting in the Grants Prison and how the inmates  have started their own A,A Home Group, and their group voted on calling their home group Breaking The Chain;s and there also registered with GSO,And also taking meeting’s to the Los Lunas level two prison,

 

Three ladies from District’s 2,6,14 got together and have started meeting’s at the women’s New Mexico State Prison in Springer,and districts 14 has donated all the books and pamphlets to help the meeting’s get started.

Districts 4,16 want to start a meeting at the Deming NM Jail, there waiting on me to get  a Good Letter together from A.A so I can sent it to the Deming facility.

 

My topic for the Pre Conference.

Consider request to create a pamphlet for inmates who are to be released after long term incarceration.

I passed out pamphlets, It sure beats sitting in a cell, AA Inside Corrections Prerelease Contact

Information Pamphlet, and the outside Prerelease Contact Information pamphlet,And the two letters one for inmates to send to GSO to let Gso know there getting out with in 6 months letting them know where there getting release to so they can have a contact in the district where there being released to, then the one letter sent back from Gso back to the inmate to let them know someone will be there to help them get to a meeting where there being released to.. after going over the Pamphlets how it is working now,, and addressing the new pamphlet for the inmates who are to be released after long term incarceration,The committee agreed it was worthy of consideration for a new pamphlet to help the inmates getting out after long term incarceration….

 

I just want to thank all of you for letting me be of service, and helping me to stay sober, a big cup of Gratitude to all of you,Please feel free to contact me with any questions or if I can be of assistance.
