Items for Discussion:

Chair briefly explained where the GSF fits into the Northern Australia Service Area structure.

Railway Project discussed. NA Posters with QR scan will be placed on trains in SEQ, on some exit doors, with expected exposure to 750,000 members of the public. Appreciation expressed for all involved in this project happening. This shows how PR events can start from a local level and end up such an expansive and worthwhile project.

Unity Day – World Unity Day is 2 September. Local groups support a local annual Unity Day however there may not be enough time to organise the event this year by Sept 2. suggestion that it be brought up for groups to discuss.

Waterford Meeting Fire at meeting issue: The issue was discussed with the owner of the shelter, who wants to have the fire, which is in a fire pit on an outside back covered area. Jeff explained NA Insurance Policy and requested there be no fire at the meeting. An outside gas heater was donated to the shelter to replace the need for heating in the meeting area. This was fine until some shelter clients attended Camp Serenity on the Gold Coast a week or two later and there was a campfire. This upset the shelter people as they couldn’t understand why and NA event can have a campfire and the shelter cannot have their pit fire. Member was informed that individual NA members may be held responsible for any accidents caused by a fire.
Suggestion is that the owner of the shelter sign a disclaimer for NA. Krissy offered to bring it up at the LSC to seek clarification of accountability.

Local Service Conference will be held Sunday 6 August. GSF participants advised time and Zoom link and invited to attend. Krissy to forward email with details of LSC to interested members.
