Bookstore Will Now be Open Monday Nights

Host Groups Needed for First Friday Speaker Meeting

Beginners Meeting Needs Volunteers for New Friday Meeting

Here’s the latest on what’s happening at East Bay Intergroup:

Notes from the Intergroup meeting held November 16. Does your group have an Intergroup Representative (IGR)? Be sure your group’s voice is being heard by electing an IGR and participating in the monthly Intergroup meeting.


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 officeadministrator@eastbay.org

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.
