September 10th, 2023

September 10, 2023. I’m an alcoholic, my home group is Into Action, my sobriety date is March

20,1986 and my name is Sharon G. Thank you for being here as we learn and share on how

we can best Carry the Message in District 9, Broward County. In October we will be back in

Boca Raton for our Quarterly Assembly October 6-8th and we hope to have greater participation.

If you haven’t been able to reserve a room for Boca Raton, please email to get on the wait list. If at any time you reserve a room and cannot use

it, please notify that same email address so that they can transfer that room to someone on the

wait list. If not we lose it. We have 2 more planning meetings in Sept and October for our

November Gratitude Dinner and Steve B will be providing more information in his report.

Carrying the Message Day is just 13 days away on September 23rd at The 101 Club. This event

is unique in that it’s the three service entities in Broward County working together, Broward

County Intergroup, Broward County Institutions Committee and us, General Service District 9.

Please help us spread the word and encourage people that are curious about service in AA in

Broward County to attend the free event. Bring a Newcomer, Bring a Dessert. You will be

hearing from Our Archives Committee about the upcoming Early Timers Meeting on October 14

at the 101 Club. Our Area 15 Chair, Donna W, continues hosting District Chairs and Alternate

Chairs monthly and we will be meeting this Thursday, Sept 14th

Today we will be holding an election to fill our District 9 Literature Committee Chair, as Chris P, our previous chair has

moved away. Due to my error, our election last month for Literature Chair was conducted

incorrectly. I sincerely apologize. In October we will be having elections due to positions

becoming vacant at the end of this year 2023. We will be using our Third Legacy Procedure.

Some of these are for positions that have one year terms with the option of standing for a

second term of one year according to our most recent Current Practice document. Job

descriptions are on our District 9 website, in Guidelines / Current Practices. Plus

they will be emailed out. Please contact me with any questions. Just a reminder, We, District 9

officers, District 9 Committee Chairs, ADCMs and DCMs, are here to serve you, the GSRs, and

the groups. Please don’t hesitate to reach out with comments or questions. Again, thank you for

being here and thank you for your service to Alcoholics Anonymous here in Broward County.

Sharon G District 9 Chair.
