Chair Report
     Friday's CJI Intergroup meeting was again productive as we addressed several topics such as upgrading our banking procedures, finishing our policy and procedures manual and receiving committee budget proposals. Additionally, we selected a Reg. 7 rep., alternate, Bobbi L to go the upcoming Reg. 7 Assembly in Frederick, Maryland. Mike M and Mike J(alternate) will be joining Bobbi.
     The recent Together We Can Retreat was a great success with 34 attendees. I’d like to thank the retreat chair, Lee Ann and the rest of the committee for a fabulous job.
     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.
