It was discussed that new information really needs to get to the Webmaster and the Newsletter Chair. Their information can be found on the Central Oregon Intergroup Website. Also, Alan asked how to proceed with getting money. He normally would get a check from Mikey for monthly potlucks to the venues. Linda said to send her both addresses and she will now send checks for both Bend and Prineville.
Schedules: Please get any changes in by mid-June for the July scheduled printing. There was also discussion from IGRs as to whether we could cut costs by printing less schedules. It was pointed out that too many changes happen in each quarter to use old printed schedules.
Website: Mark reported everything up-to-date. He again stressed that he has no way of knowing if information is not correct unless he is notified regarding any errors or changes. Please contact him for any changes or mistakes. There were approximately 840 visitors to the site with 1400 hits during the month.
