I’m an alcoholic, Into Action is my home group, my sobriety date is March 20,1986 and my name is Sharon G.

Thank you for your patience with our District 9 new officers and new committee chairs. We continues to move forward with be ongoing training and learning. Your district officers continue to meet monthly to better serve you. Steve, Alt Chair, and I are meeting monthly with other District Chairs and Alt Chairs with Donna W, our Area 15 Chair.

Our 501c3 is still progressing, we are waiting for final documentation from the IRS and Florida Department of Revenue. However, we were able to open a new bank account at Chase and transfer funds from our previous account. The old account will remain open temporarily so we can get our new checks and to make sure we receive our Zelle contributions. Just as a FYI, all officers are signers on the account.

It’s General Service Conference Agenda time. For those that are new to General Service this is the time we receive the final Conference agenda items and the background info for those items. These items originate from individuals in the fellowship as well as groups, districts and areas, addressing a multitude of topics. The goal of presenting and discussing these items is to eventually let our Area 15 delegate know how your group feels about them. That way she carries our voices to the Panel 73 General Service Conference held in New York in April. Next month we will have very few reports so we can focus on the items. Our Standing Committee Chairs will be presenting,as well as DCM, Officers, etc. Our Area 15 Delegate, Cary W, will be hosting several virtual presentations providing us with background and her perspective on them. (We will be discussing this in more detail later in the meeting. )

Our Secretary will be forwarding the items and also information on how to access the background info that will posted to the Area 5 website. To receive them please make sure we have your correct email and that you check it on a regular basis. 

We are co-hosting the April Quarterly Assembly in Boca Raton with District 8, April 14-16, 2023. Volunteers are needed! Especially we need greeters and help with registration and hospitality. The next planning meeting is 1pm Saturday March 11th at the 101 Club in Pompano Beach. If you can’t make it to the planning meeting, please give your information to one of the officers or Victor if you are interested in helping with Hospitality. At this time there are no rooms available. Any cancellations, transfers of rooms or to get on the wait list should be directed to hotelinfo@area15aa.org.

Our priority, the officers, is to get back to having events in District 9. Events that bring us together, opportunities to serve, opportunities to laugh, opportunities to carry the message, opportunities for newcomers and sponsees. If you attended AA Got Talent, you saw a potential location for events. Pompano Citi Center. It has a kitchen, no charge for parking, however, it has a limit of 450 people. We are going to check it out and see what possibilities it has for District 9.


Thank you for giving me the opportunity to serve,

Sharon G District 9 Chair 954-560-1880 chairperson@district9aa.org
