He is almost out of Western Directories and the hotline is still getting non-Central Oregon calls.

Website: Cory S. reported that web traffic is consistent with last month’s. Otherwise all is going well.
Cory plans to create generic site specific email addresses for the officers of Intergroup, but was unable to finish this month.
He has installed a feature that notifies your email that the website has changed. This is available to anyone who registers on the site.

Melissa created a recap of motions in MS Word. Great work. Suggestions included dividing committee, one per page. Darla will put the old minutes into MS Excel and work with Melissa to combine.
Mark L would like a separate recap of positions, responsibilities and terms. We believe Kendra is willing.
we continue to think about and discuss.
E. New Business: Tom from Potluck invited groups to email him or sign up for meeting slots (bulletin board at TEC) for both Christmas and Thanksgiving. He needs volunteers to work the alcathon – 2 hour shifts as greeters, cooks, dishwashers, etc. He is open to suggestions for a speaker for Thanksgiving if anyone knows a November birthday.
