March 2020 ELF Report
Greetings Area 46 folks interested in Corrections service to our facilities in New Mexico. It’s been a busy month.
On February 1 I attended the Trusted Servants workshop in Albuquerque to become informed on how to best serve you. A great take away is we can copy the efforts of CPC from last panel and start a monthly phone call to stay in touch between Assemblies. If you are a Corrections Chair for your District or a DCM interested in Corrections who doesn’t yet have a chair, you are part of the Area 46 Corrections Committee. Please be sure to send me your contact information including email if you have it so I can link you up to the conversation. Our first call will be May 6 at 7 PM.
Agenda topics are coming up and will take a lot of our time next Assembly. Our conscience will help Bill L bring our voice to the Corrections Committee at the Conference, so please bring your experience and opinions to our meeting
We are still working on creating a data base to make it super easy to find out about correctional facilities in your area. At the Assembly I will have a list for each district to check for accuracy. You are a vital link to people who want to know more about how to serve in this way.
And speaking of service, the next two training opportunities for prisons are: 4/16 at Northwest New Mexico Correctional Center and 4/25 at Otero County Prison. Please contact me for more information if you want to know times and locations or need help in application process. Applications must be in at least 2 weeks in advance.
Christoph, our treasurer and I are still working on getting the bank stuff transferred. For now, I can report that I have not yet received any new funds from the pink can or other group contributions past what Tony reported in January. There have been two book purchases, a case to Eddie County and one to District 3 both logged in by Tony at the beginning of 2020.
February 2020 ELF Report
Hello friends of Area 46 carrying the message to our confined brothers and sisters in New Mexico. I am honored to serve you and want to know how I can help.
The corrections database is now in working order for those going to prisons. You will see the training dates for each facility for 2020 and contact folks.
If you need applications, the following link works: https://cd.nm.gov/services/volunteer-services/ and if you do not have email or internet, please call me and I will send you applications through the mail.
We do not yet have complete information on jails in your districts. If you can send me contacts in those facilities, I will do my best to update that information so anyone can easily access it.
There is an opportunity for Area 46 to support Big Book workshops in prison facilities if you are interested in this. Lisa K of District 2 organized one at Penitentiary of NM and it was a huge success. Please let me know if you are interested and I will work with you to make it happen.
I look forward to meeting all the district corrections chairs in March and going over agenda topics which you may have opinions on (!)
I have not yet spent any corrections funds but will let you know when I do.
Meanwhile, thank you for your trust and interest and never hesitate to contact me if you have a need.
With love, in service,
Kristina F Corrections Committee Chair
