Area 14 News graphic


Hello to all. Hope you all had a great Halloween, and will have happy times during the upcoming holidays. The last Assembly was a busy and productive one. Several items were brought to the floor and will be discussed and voted on at the next Assembly. Such as whether or not to allow sending the minutes by e-mail to those who request them. The Growth committee will be discussing a proposal to create the position of Archivist for the Area. An item came to light during our interim officers meeting which I will bring to the body of the Assembly regarding the Corrections Committee providing Big Books to district corrections committees for prisons, and whether the Area feels this is proper or not. I feel it is part of our responsibility, however that's only my opinion and the decision is up to the body as always. We will also be conducting an Area inventory at this Assembly. Mary D. from GSO (and formerly of North Florida) will be conducting the inventory meeting. We need, and encourage input from all Groups in the Area so as to get the best input to bring about changes which will be of benefit to the entire North Florida Area.

Yours in Service,

When anyone, anywhere, reaches out for help,
