Welcome to the Delegate's Corner

Information about and from our Area Delegate.

Delegate's Corner - July 10, 2017

As usual, I return from Area Assembly full of gratitude and exuberance! For me there is such a feeling of excitement during our weekends together. Some of the new things I particularly enjoyed:

  • The informative display tables so you could stop by and pick up interesting literature. This assembly had tables focusing on my General Service Conference (with pins traded with other delegates for you to take), and on Finance (with lots of FREE literature).
  • Registration area a little more traffic flow friendly set up by removing one table! And having the Registrar information right there helped direct you to his location.
  • Sunday morning having the Business Meeting Agenda and Motions on the screens helped in keeping track of the meeting.
  • There was a test of administrative committee meeting at a different time, reacting to frequent suggestions that people would like to get to more than one Administrative Committee.

I had great fun facilitating a working DCM meeting Saturday morning. The DCMs formed "Districts" each to cover a single question, and coming up with a collaborated presentation of their subject, including visuals. DCMs don't get a lot of time to interact, so this was a way to make that happen. Hope it was as much fun and helpful for the DCMs.

My Delegate's Report gave me the opportunity to share with the Area my experiences at Conference. It was like reliving it again! I could never express my gratitude to you enough!

Some news from GSO you can find at click on "what's new" tab:
