Intergroup Meeting Group Inventory Planned for Early 2023
After discussion on whether or not the IGRs are ready to hold an Intergroup inventory, East Bay Intergroup decided to have further discussion and hold the inventory in early 2023. There was concern that holding it in December was not only too soon, but would conflict with the election of officers.
Bookstore Will Now be Open Monday Nights
The EBI Board of Directors and Rockridge Fellowship have both approved the re-opening of the bookstore on Monday nights from 5-8 pm. Nicole, a new volunteer, has spearheaded the Monday night hours. They are looking for volunteers to fill up the Saturday hours. This is a great service opportunity. For more information contact Lindsay firstname.lastname@example.org
Host Groups Needed for First Friday Speaker Meeting
The First Friday Speaker Meeting, located at 8800 Fontaine St, Oakland, is looking for Host Groups. If your group is interested, contact Kriss R. at (510) 789-9246 or email 1stFridayBirthday@gmail.com
Beginners Meeting Needs Volunteers for New Friday Meeting
A third Beginners’ Meeting is planned for Fridays at 7pm, but it still needs co-secretaries and Zoom host. This is great service; be there when the newcomer comes in. Please contact Liza H., the Beginners’ Chair, to take one of these commitments. Also, Liza is stepping down after more than two years of service. Please come to the EBI meeting in December to join in the election process and to make yourself available for this vital job.
Liza can be reached at email@example.com
