Past Events

 

ZOOM Event: Staying Connected in AA While Social Distancing

Thank you for everyone who attended the workshop on 4/18/20. We had 30 AAs in attendance. Workshop opened with introduction of planning committee members and chair explained the format of the workshop. Our technology chair used the “breakout room” zoom feature to separate all participants into eight , 3-4 person groups. Each groups was give 3-4 questions to discuss with a focus on remaining connected: within the fellowship, through the steps and traditions, and through sponsorship and our responsibility statement  with the fellowship, based on the steps and traditions. After a brief break, all participants returned to the main ZOOM room to report on their groups discussion. The Q&A content of the group discussion can be found at the link below:

District Conscience 

We met on 2/29/20 to discuss some of the agenda items for the 70th General Service Conference in New York. Thank you to all who attended. We reviewed our assigned item, as well as a few others. There was a lively discussion and I think we all learned something. Our Alt-DCM, Phil, helped us trial the use of ZOOM (video conference software).  We will be trying it out again for our next district conscience in a couple of weeks. Please email DCM if you would like a copy of the minutes from the meeting at district12@nm-aa.org
