According to Chuck C., those attending the Central Michigan Inter-Area meeting in Roscommon voted to hold meetings every other month, instead of every month. Ray noted that ShiaCoAA put in a bid and will host the meeting in February in Corunna.

Also discussed were final touches for the Oct. 11 seminar, scheduled from 11 to 3 Oct. 11 at Corunna United Methodist Church. Themes for the seminar, titled “How Does a Group Stay Sober,” are “Service Work Within the Home Group,” “Issues of Sponsorship” and “Responsibilities of the Home Group.”

Bill D., who was unable to attend the meeting, left a status report with Chuck, stating that “all minutes and announcements have been updated” on the Web.


Todd M. noted that he is resigning as District 10 DCM.

Chuck pointed out that elections for all positions – all board positions and three DCM positions – will be held in December.

Roger discussed the need for donations for the annual New Year’s Eve party, which is open to anyone who doesn’t want to drink on New Year’s Eve. He noted that Janell J. and Louise H. are the co-chairpersons.

As the special needs chairman, Jamie S. discussed the need for a non-AA interpreter or helper to possibly attend closed AA meetings. He was asked to check with Jim Marr, who used to chair the committee, and look into it further.

Having no further business, the meeting adjourned at 7:20 p.m. with the Lord’s Prayer.

The next meeting is scheduled for 8:15 p.m. Monday, Dec. 1 at Christ Episcopal Church in Owosso.
