On the first Saturday of the month, October 7th at 5:30, Larry H. will be our guest to share his experience, strength and hope. There are three motions for consideration by Western Washington Area 72 at the Assembly in October. We will have discussions about these after the Monday meeting at 6:45 PM (hybrid) on September 25 and after the Saturday meeting at 9:15 AM (Zoom only) on September 30. Here are the motions:

  1. We move that Western Washington Area 72 support Oregon Area 58’s proposed agenda item to prioritize the following pieces of AA literature into ASL: the personal stories in the upcoming fifth edition; the pamphlet the AA group; the GSR pamphlet; and the AA Service Manual.
  2. In the spirit of unity, we affirm that District 25 is an online district with no geographic boundaries
  3. Area 72 submit the following Proposed Agenda Item for consideration at the General Service Conference: “The General Service Board shall develop supplemental reporting focused on the actual costs of the various service items we provide, with an initial draft being brought back to the Conference Committee on Finance for review at the General Service Conference.”
