There was a motion to change the December IGR meeting since it falls on Christmas day. There was much discussion. The motion passed. The IGR meeting for December will be held on December 18th. Eileen will email Cory to include on the website.
The Chair positions needing to be filled by December for outgoing Chair positions:
Vice Chair; Treasurer; 2 Even Year Advisory Board positions; Website Chair; and Hotline Chair. All are 2 year commitments and require 2 years of sobriety. The Treasurer position requires that no member may serve if they have a prior felony conviction for fraud, theft, or embezzlement.
It was noted that the people standing for these positions need to attend the November IGR meeting to make their intentions known. The voting, however, will be in December.
There will be a Grapevine workshop with Vera (the District Grapevine Chair) at Starbucks across from Fred Meyer on Wednesday November 2nd at 5:30pm. She is encouraging all group Grapevine representatives to attend to learn how to present Grapevine material.
Meeting adjourned at 6:10pm. The next meeting will be at 5:30 p.m., November 27th, 2011 in Bend at TEC.
Yours in Service,
