Welcome to the Delegate's Corner

Information about and from our Area Delegate.

Delegate's Corner - October 23, 2017

Hurricane Irma certainly created chaos for so many people. I hope you fared as well as I did. My family was under mandatory evacuation, and we spent safe time cared for by our Army family at Fort Benning GA. We were so grateful for the soft place to land under stressful conditions. They were even accommodating to our 4 pawed kin. Ever so grateful to come back to a home with electricity, and lots of clean-up and somewhat minor repairs.

You may not be aware of the General Service Board action of initiating a lawsuit to stop the auction of a printer's copy of the Big Book manuscript which includes printer's notes. This manuscript is reproduced by Hazelden in a book entitled: The Book That Started It All.

At the October assembly there was general sharing session entitled: "Manuscript Litigation: What are the facts?" More than 100 members came to the session and a good dialogue took place. I had printed 100 handouts & I ran out. If you want one, there is a link at the bottom of this page.

If you have input on this issue, please email me and I will include your comments in my file on the matter. All legal documents are public record, if you want them here is the information to find them: Type in the Index Search Number: 652676-2017

REMEMBER: The deadline for Proposed Agenda Items for the 68th General Service Conference is December 15, 2017.

My schedule right now: November 10-12 SSAASA, Atlanta, GA, November 18, District 6, Gratitude Dinner, St. Augustine. Please remember, if I have an open date on my calendar it is yours if you invite me! And, remember, I love to come out to you!

Pre-Conference Workshops: I know it seems a long way off, but Pre-Conference Workshops dates fill in fast. Please let me know as soon as you can when you want me to come to your District(s). From the looks of things right now, we are going to have some hot topics to discuss!
