We need your support! Intergroup Zoom AGM rescheduled

AGM: July 8 at 7pm. Use THIS link to join the meeting. The one listed in the poster is outdated. Meeting ID: 127 107 243 Password: 014394

Hello Representatives and other interested A.A. members,

Hopefully you are well during this pandemic. Despite not having a physical office, your committee members are working hard to maintain the service you have come to expect from Intergroup Central Office. Phone calls are being handled and emails, including Interac transactions. Literature is available upon request.

I know you love Alcoholics Anonymous and having an office. As soon as a suitable location can be found, we will gladly reopen; however, if we are to continue providing these services, your support is needed. The AGM and the last 2 Intergroup meetings could not be held because of not having a quorum, which is 5 Intergroup Representatives or their alternates.

If we are not able to conduct business this time, it will be necessary to explore dissolution of Intergroup and the Central Office. If this sounds extreme, it is indeed and would be a last resort.

Please feel free to share this with anyone, especially someone who might be interested in representing their group.

In love and service,

Claudette, Mid Island Intergroup Society Chairperson

Zoom Meeting Safety

Zoom bombing is a hot topic right now! If your online meeting is not set up securely, you may be providing the opportunity for people to enter the meeting and cause disruption. Tradition 5 states “Each group has but one primary purpose—to carry its message to the alcoholic who still suffers.”

With a few simple tweaks and adjustments, we can increase our chances of carrying a message of experience, strength and hope!
