Chair Report – June 2017

I’m an alcoholic, member of the Tamarac Group, and my name is Al.  My sobriety date is March 2, 2004.  I am honored to serve as your District 9 Chairperson. First off I’d like to welcome our esteemed Delegate Annie C for taking the time to come here to deliver her Delegate Report Presentation of her experiences at the 67th General Service Conference held April 23rd-29th at the Westchester Hilton in Rye, New York. I’ll keep this report short so we can get right to her report ASAP. We held our Founders Day picnic on June 4th and although we had some rain the event turned out great. Thank you all who attended and did service. More later in Joey B’s report. Additionally, we are having planning meetings for the Unity Breakfast, Gratitude Dinner, the October Assembly hosted by District 9, and Carry the Message Day. All committees are in need of volunteers so don’t be afraid to get involved to grow and learn. The next Assembly will be at the Hyatt Sarasota, July 21st thru the 23rd. Flyers are available on the table or can be printed from the District or Area websites. Don’t forget the 61st Florida State Convention being held in Jacksonville on July 27th – July 30th. The theme is “Love in Action”. I’m going and would love to see you all there. Please remember that we still need a PI/CPC Chair and now an Intergroup Liaison. Welcome to our new Webmaster (Web Chair) Erika D who has jumped right in. thank you for your service. Due to our modified agenda there will be a limited number of committee reports but all reports will be in the minutes in their entirety. Please feel free to get involved. Thank you all for your participation and support. Remember to check the District website for details of all upcoming events.  Thank you all for your willingness in representing your Groups and carrying the message.

Unity XII Breakfast Report – June 2017

I’m an alcoholic, member of the Tamarac Group, and my name is Al.  The Unity XII Breakfast Planning Meeting was held at the Intergroup Office on Thursday, May 25, 2017. We are progressing nicely and in good shape as we get closer to the Event. Thanks go out to Judy O who helped sell tickets at the last District Meeting. That service was invaluable. This is one of 2 events where General Service, Broward County Institutions and Broward County Intergroup come together to fulfill our Primary Purpose. I’ve got only a few tickets available for purchase. You might be able to purchase tickets at the Intergroup Office or someone from BCIC. The menu will be finalized at our last planning meeting on June 14th and may include eggs, bacon, sausage, home fries, and croissants. The Organization assignments have been for the most part been finalized. There are always opportunities to do service. The Unity XII Breakfast will be held at 9:00 am on June 24th at the Plantation United Methodist Church.  The Speaker is our own Trish C K. Literature Chair of General Service and new ACM working with Sherri in Subdistrict 14. So let’s all come out and show her our support. The Church is a NO SMOKING FACILITY so of course there is NO SMOKING on the property. At this point, no tickets WILL BE sold at the door. Only 270 tickets were available for purchase at $8 each. All Volunteers are required to purchase a ticket. Extra Volunteers will be placed where needed on the day of the Event to help meet any Staffing needs. Please see me to purchase your tickets as I’ve only got a handful should you wish to be part of this great event. Beverages are included in the ticket price. Coffee, bottled water, and juice. Thank you all for your continued support and dedication to service.
