D. Old Business:
- Newsletter Issue: Since it was the 2nd month that the newsletter chair was not present, Debbie R made a motion: “That Birthdays be announced by Group in the Conscious Contact”. The motion was voted on and passed, with 2 opposed. The minority opinion spoke that they voted against because they felt that the Newsletter Chair should have been able to be present before voting. The chairman asked if anyone wanted to change their vote. One person did, therefore the motion was voted on again. The motion still PASSED.
E. New Business:
- Vice-Chair is stepping down from her position. All groups were asked to take the position information back to their respective groups so that we can hopefully elect someone next month.
Meeting was adjourned at 6:29pm. The next meeting will be at 5:30 p.m., April 24, 2011 in Bend at TEC.
Yours in Service,
