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

Notes from the Intergroup meeting held September 21. 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.

NEW THIS MONTH

New Special Events Coordinator

Hank W. has stepped up to be the new Special Events Coordinator. This position has been vacant for some time, in part because there have been few events to hold, due to the pandemic. But now that we are getting back into meeting in person, there will be plenty of events to keep Hank busy. We are all grateful for his service; he will need lots of volunteers, so please consider helping out.

Bookstore

Lindsay, the Office Administrator, is hoping to expand the bookstore hours to include Saturday and Monday. If you are able to volunteer to staff, contact Lindsay at
officeadministrator@eastbayaa.org
