The November 9, CJI Intergroup meeting due to the inclement weather had a smaller turnout of 9, including myself. The meeting was still was very busy and productive. Nominations were continued for the World Service Business Conference. Current WSBC delegate Christina H declined to run for a 2nd term. I was nominated for the position and accepted and as stated last month Brenda S is running for a 2nd term. Next month we will ask once more for nominations and then have the election.
We also held nominations for a Region 7 rep. position as Mike M has finished 2 terms and is rotating out. At this time there are not any nominees and will continue nominations next month followed by the election in January.
I’d like to take this opportunity to thank both Christina H and Mike M for their service to CJI as WSBC delegate and Region 7 rep., respectively. They worked very hard and contributed much to CJI, Region 7 and World Service.
Please remind your groups that raffle baskets are requested for CJI IDEA Day and to please make sure they get to the marathon on November 17.
We at intergroup are here united in the desire to carry the message of recovery to all who still suffer. We sincerely hope you will join us as a group representative or visitor at our next Intergroup meeting.
