  1. (Anna in NC) The format of our daily 7:00 AM phone meeting-Just For Today topic discussion- receives a lot of favorable feedback and is successful in keeping the focus of these meetings on step-work application. I’d like to suggest we consider offering more Just For Today meetings by either substituting some of our existing Open Topic meetings with this format and/or implementing this format to any new meetings that may be created in the future. A source to consider would be AA’s Daily Reflections.

    • Marianne recommended that an item be placed in the script asking for feedback on new mtg format from attendee- no opposition

Agenda Items

  1. Request to Discuss (Mark D.): Start meetings in mute-mode (*5) and require people to use *6 to share. Chair would need to remind people frequently.
    • Request to discuss starting meetings in mute mode. Mark D. made request to begin in (*5). Concern about people who are conferenced in by another. They wouldn’t be able to share. Also, chair code or host code would need to be explained by a mentor or sponsor to new chairs. People feel good to have started discussion and table it for now.
  2. Motion to adopt the MAWPM Suggestions for Chairpersons and distribute to current chairs (Mark D.)
    • Adopt MAWPM suggestions for chairpersons and distribute to current chairs. Agenda item has been there for a while. Not discussed on other group conscience items.

  3. Presentation of pros/cons of joining District 13? (Davy O)
    • Presentation of pros/cons of joining District 13.  World meeting group has been around about a year. So we could join and be announced on internet web page for District 13. District 13 is internet only meeting.  Marianne suggested that we perhaps have our own District – phone meeting district. World service level work would be required for this. Barb offered to research what work would be required and bring back more pro/con discussion. Davio and Barb volunteered to work on this.
  4. Discussion of creating an MA inspired  speaker-thon (Marianne)
    • Discussion of creating MA speaker-thon.  Marianne suggested this discussion for holiday time. Could put out to chairpersons if they would like to put in an extra hour of time, could have a few extra meetings. Alternatively, could run all speaker tapes on a loop. Could announce during speaker tapes that you could push #2 to go to a share line and then come back in to speaker tape. Marianne take over scheduling with possible help from another. Phone lines are open anyway. Janeen volunteered to help Marianne and suggests to add to announcements that we are looking for hosts for marathon meetings and asking chairpersons if they want to host. Motion by Marianne to have holiday time schedule a few extra meetings and have sign ups for chair people. Davio seconds motion. Motion passed.
  5. Consider chairperson requirements and exclusion from chairing if a one day relapse? (Marianne)
    • Passed on item 5 on agenda items due to time constraints. Table to next month.
  6. Discuss outreach to Spanish speaking community (Ana)
    • Anna put on agenda to outreach to Spanish speaking community. Anna not present, however, Matt says he has heard Spanish speaking people come on line. Matt motions Item 6 tabled for now. Janeen seconds. Tabled.
  7. Request from Lisa to chair the Wed 8pm meeting as a hybrid meeting.
    • Request from Lisa to chair Wednesday. Kristen from New Orleans would like to attend but not a great time because conflicts with women’s meeting. Speaker phone issue discussed. Facility on Monday meetings never was issue. Lisa motioned to table item until more research on best time for hybrid meeting. Janeen seconded the motion.
