B. Treasurer’s Report
Linda reported a negative balance due to the lack of group contributions. The operating account is down. She reported that the Potluck is not paying for itself. The report was accepted with a change to reflect the correct date. A recommendation was made to delete the section titled “Operating Activities” from the report in the future because it appears to have no useful purpose.

Al-Anon: No Report
District 5 Liaison: No Report
Entertainment: No Report
Hot Line: No Official Report. Sherrill was not in attendance, however, per Joan, she has continued to cover the hotline with volunteers and Intergroup Office.
Newsletter: Eileen will inform the people with paid subscriptions that they will no longer receive them by mail. She will also send a form for them to choose receiving their Conscious Contact through PDF file, donating the remainder of their subscription, or receiving a refund. They will also be able to download it for free from the COIG Website.
Office: A report and ledger was provided to the group. The Intergroup Office is covering the Hotline on Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Joan and Jack are keeping a record of the office calls and Hotline calls received.
