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

Vote Taken on PPP Loan at May Meeting – Motion to Return Fails, Motion to Let Board Decide Passes

At the May Intergroup meeting the group reps voted on whether or not the PPP loan taken out last year should be returned (you can find background here).

A majority voted in favor of returning the loan, however, it was not enough to achieve a substantial majority of two thirds, and the motion failed. A new motion to allow the board to make the decision was made and voted on. It passed with substantial unanimity.

New Proposed East Bay Intergroup (EBI) Bylaws to be Voted on at June meeting (June 16) 

Intergroup Reps (IGRs) are continuing to  review the revised EBI bylaws with their groups and will bring the feedback to Intergroup at the June meeting (June 16).
