What’s new in Intergroup – May 2018
Working & Living the Program Events
June 9-Cranford Sat. 37th Anniversary Meeting
August 18-Sponsorship Day
November 2-4, Region 7 Convention, Ocean City, Md.
The May CJI Intergroup meeting was again very busy and very productive as we concentrated mostly on Reg. 7 Spring Assembly Reports and 2018 World Service Business Conference Reports. Including myself we had 14 representatives and 1 guest. I am again happy to report that the CJI sponsored motion welcoming those who had weight loss surgery into OA was adapted as part of the World Service policy manual. Both WASBC delegate, Brenda S and Christina H. gave extensive reports. Main motions were discussed, and it was noted that the CJI sponsored wt. loss surgery motion was slightly amended but still captures the spirit of our motion. Once World Service issues a summary, I will get that information out to you.
Additionally, we voted to extend our current vice chair, Mike M another year, term ending June 2019 so to be compliance of our current CJI bylaws. Discussion on a conference call option during CJI IG meetings was proposed under new business and will continue next month.
As a reminder, we voted not to have a CJI sponsored Sponsorship Day but created a committee headed by Frank M to encourage and support CJI groups in hosting Sponsorship Day workshops.
We at intergroup are here united in the desire to carry the message of recovery to all who still suffer. I sincerely hope you will join us as a group representative or visitor at our next Intergroup meeting.
