Communications Audit

WHY AREN’T WE TALKING ABOUT THE COMMUNICATIONS AUDIT?  The General Service Board commissioned an audit of our internal and external communications to see how well we are communicating within our Fellowship and to the public.  The audit began in 2017 and was completed in 2018.  Please read a summary of the report.  (The results begin on page 11).

Delegate’s Schedule:

IT”S TIME TO SCHEDULE DELEGATE REPORTS (Conference Reports)!!!   😀 yay!

It is our custom in Area 46 for the delegate to give a report on what happened at the most recent General Service Conference in every district that wants one.  This gives members, who might not otherwise have the chance, the opportunity to hear what happened and ask any questions they want.  (That’s right, all A.A. members are welcome to attend these reports!)

Bill, our alternate delegate, is available to give a Service workshop in conjunction with the delegate Conference report.  This workshop helps those new to Service understand the A.A. Service structure and the year-round Conference process.  When scheduling the delegate report, please let me know if you’d also like to have Bill give the Service workshop.

Delegate Report
June 2019

Hi.  Some of you may have noticed that I did not have an article in the June issue of El Farolito.  I’m a little embarrassed to admit that I was somewhat overwhelmed as I prepared to depart for the General Service Conference in May and I simply missed the deadline.   I humbly apologize for the oversight.

Your grateful servant,

Teresa J.
