The above will be held on Saturday, August 2nd in Plummer Park.
Following the recent intergroup meeting, further discussion about the L.A. court-referral program will occur as well during the session.
Details are on the attached flyer.
A discussion about the future of the SCA Court outreach program will figure prominently at Saturday's intergroup meeting, at Plummer Park from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in Rooms 5 & 6.
The Los Angeles Intergroup wants to hear from as much of the fellowship as possible. Speakers may only have a minute or two to provide their remarks, but will have the entire meeting to listen, so all are encouraged to come with an open mind and heart.
Please keep your statement within the 1-2 minute time frame. If you are at the meeting and prepare a written statement, we can add it to the record for the archives. If unable to attend, members can provide written statements to be read. Please email it to the current intergroup chair Rich, rbkinla [at] msn [dot] com, and the secretary will read it.
There is an urgent need for Regional Coordinators for the three regions of the United States. What do Coordinators do? They will:
- assist the Inreach Chair with maintaining contact with Intergroups within their specific region. There are 4 conference calls during the year that regional coordinators should try to attend;
- possibly choose to get involved with the Literature Development subcommittee which presents newly developed literature for consideration by the ISO delegates during our annual convention. This may involve commenting on a piece of proposed literature or actively editing a piece and having your peers comment on your ideas. Inreach also vets translations of existing literature;
- be instrumental in helping the addict who lives in areas of the country where there are no SCA meetings to stay connected to the program. The Out of Meeting Sponsorship Program serves to connect people around the world providing the service of sponsorship to people who live in areas where there are no SCA meetings; and
- provide support for addicts wishing to start SCA meetings in their area. This is an area where service to the fellowship allows for creativity in meeting the challenges of strengthening the opportunities for all of us to recover.
The Regional Coordinators are the front line contacts for their respective region. Please announce the availability of these service positions at your Intergroup meeting, and encourage intergroup reps to make announcements at their respective meetings. There is no perfect way to do service however, without people willing to perform this service nothing gets done.
A workshop will be held on Saturday, July 12th to discuss revisions on the upcoming new edition of the "The Little Blue Book" published by SCA. A flyer for the event is here, containing all details including the location.
