New Business

Issues for the NA Board

  • Michele is Southside Board Representative, any issues for the board are to be brought to Michele to take to the board.

GSF Reports

  • Subcommittee reports to have a 5 – 7-minute time frame to present their reports at GSF meetings to allow time for all agenda items to be discussed.

Traditions being included at GSF

  • Suggested that instead of the service prayer being read out at the beginning of GSF instead we read out a section from the Traditions in the hopes it will help us practice unity.

GSF Chairperson

  • Has been agreed for strong members to chair at the GSF over the coming months to help keep GSF discussions on topic.

Next LSC – August 17th (date to be confirmed)

  • Will be hosted online – 3 speaker jam with service meetings held in between, inspired service topics, very strong speakers with a lot of clean time.

World Unity Day – September 5th 2021

Logan’s 12 Step Feast Unity Day – 17th July

  • Was voted to postpone event due to COVID-19 restriction on numbers allowed in venue
  • New date will be decided at a later time when restrictions are eased
  • Jeff will update this on the website and it will be announced at local meetings and on social media to get the word out

QR Codes

  • Meeting Venues are responsible for providing QR codes to sign in at local meetings

Goodna lunch meeting

  • Questions around whether Goodna Lunch time meeting is still active
  • Kylie will follow that up with Renee and report back at next GSF
