Ariea – Last week we did fellowship at rise and grind (Jan 2nd) but feel like we could have reached out to more new comers. Concerns about masks versus no masks.
Thoughts on how that went?
Kole – some new comers. Overall general aspect, getting to bond with people in AA was good.
Ariea – more things to do as a committee? We have a new member named Nicolas
Nicolas – introduced himself
Ariea- reached out to treatment centers; a few were interested in zoom meetings. Speaker meetings? Q&A? House of hope (women’s). Brighton recovery community center (in-person); corner canyon (zoom), renaissance ranch
Forrest – for it
Ariea – will reach out to treatment centers; any women to help?
Lisa – seems open ended; is it a one-time deal? Once a month?
Ariea – since we can’t do events this seems like a good way to help the new comer.
Lisa – let’s pick one as a group and rotate who chairs, picks speakers, etc. format could be dealer’s call (ask it basket).
Jake – youth treatment facilities? More relateable; focus on younger treatment crowd.
Ariea – can look into that. Rapid covid testing? Possible option.
Jake – I take a meeting into recovery ways the 1st, 3rd Sundays of the month. But some of these guys are in their 50-60s. would be nice to get a treatment cohort that are younger.
Ariea – anyone not comfortable going in person?
Ariea – how often?
Shelly – once a month feels best
Taylor – Show up strong for a few rather than stretch ourselves too thin
Kole – once a month; don’t over comit
Jon – has a contact at SLCC for potential in person meetings
Ariea – we have 8 people who have said they’re willing to help with meetings. Once a month; 8 months for everyone in rotation. Thinks we should do more than once a month.
Kole – more than one treatment center, maybe twice a month?
Forest – should reach out to the district treatment chair
Shelly – do it in pairs instead of just a singular individual
Lisa – we should get a google doc of dates to sign up
Kole – have another fellowship event. Could possibly get more people to go next time.
Ariea – what do we want a fellowship to look like? What would we want a unity event?
Jake – when I dropped by the coffee shop last week, there were a lot of people in that enclosed space. If we do another in person, need more space, less people, or outdoors.
Shelly – nice to have the option to attend safely (out doors or remotely)
Ariea – want to focus on the meeting stuff right now and fellowship next month?
Kole – if it’s on zoom we can invite more people
Forrest – there’s a men’s meeting that has a good style
Ariea – a panel is a great idea
Forrest – you mean a format?
Ariea – yeah
Forrest – will do by next Sunday
Lisa – treasurer report
$102 – petty cash
$601.65 – prudent reserve
$813.80 – checking
$1,517.45 – total monies
We have checks now ; going to pay the alano club rent for letting us meet there.
Putting venmo in chat if you want to donate to SALTYPAA
Ariea – alano does not care how much
Lisa – $10/month for alano club
Kole – $15 is more normal
Lisa – let me know if you have an opinion but we’ll talk about it again next month
Alex is willing to help via zoom for treatment meetings
Erik is good for either in person or zoom
Ariea – can we also post venmo in slack? Nicolas do you want a position? Get into the group chat?
Nicolas – yeah and sarah
Forrest – motion to close
Next meeting – second Sunday of the month at 6pm zoom or in person for traditions and then meeting.
