What’s new in Intergroup – July 2018
Working & Living the Program Events
August 18-Sponsorship Day
August 24-26- TWC Retreat, Easton, Pa.
November 2-4, Region 7 Convention, Ocean City, Md.
The July CJI Intergroup meeting was busy and productive including further discussion on changing the time and meeting day for intergroup meetings and how to support the upcoming CJI Together We Can Retreat. We again had a nice turnout of 14 representatives plus myself.
Under new business we considered and discussed whether it would be a good thing to change the current day and time for our CJI meetings. Consensus was that it is best at this time to keep the day and starting time as it is now. We did establish a conference call meeting option for inclement weather and that would be determined by the current chair. One of our members will research and report on the feasibility to have a Skype or Zoom option during meetings held during inclement weather.
Our Retreat at this point was a little behind in distributing flyers and they are now distributed. Much help is needed for the retreat itself and on July 17, we will be holding a retreat committee conference call.
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.
