Items for Discussion:

Old Business:

1. Unity Day: 

Jeremy not in attendance and phoned an update through for inclusion in the Minutes.

Still sorting out rent issue for the centre. The centre manager does not want rent and when it was explained that we need to be self supporting, the centre wanted to charge $50 and hour. Given the venue will be needed it from 6 to 8 hours the cost is prohibitive, so Jeff is in negotiations with the centre management.  Jeremy explained that it probably will not be a free event now however no-one will be turned away, especially newcomers. Jeremy explained that the planning is still going well.

New Business:

1. Fund Flow

Discussion on Fund Flow of 7th tradition collections as some groups are holding a considerable amount of money and the Area is in need of money to fund the upcoming Convention. Beenleigh GSR enquired about how much groups are expected to Fund Flow and and it was explained that each group traditionally holds onto one months running costs (after expenses, such as Rent; Literature etc.) and pass the rest of the 7th onto the Area.

2. Proposed Convention.

Update from members that have been attending the Convention Committee. More will be revealed.

3. (Australia Day) Public Holiday Gathering.

26 January 2024. From 9.30am at Logan Gardens.

This is a family friendly park with playgrounds for the children.

4. Contact List updated.

Minutes will be posted on na.org.au under the Northern Australia pages in the GSF section.
