Old Business:

1. Unity Day: UPDATE: The venue at Winnetts Rd Daisy Hill has been secured for Saturday 13 April 2024. The Registration opens at 8.30am; first meeting at 9.30am and they expect to wrap up around 3pm. $10; $5 concession; newcomers and rehabs for free. Speakers on the 12 Steps and a BBQ lunch included. Some discussion about the recent practise of inviting members to share at the Unity Day and then it will be decided on the day whether to call them to share or not

2. Finances & Fund Flow

Logan Groups decided that they do not want to have an Area Sub Bank Account and want to handle their own money.

Bethania Group – rent is sorted and paid.

Fund Flow of 7th tradition collections has continues to be a focus by groups (to enable funds to be available for the upcoming Area convention). 

Point of Information: Re Fund Flow of 7th collection: 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. 

3. Dogs in Meetings.

Dogs are allowed if they are service dogs and should be wearing a blue jacket. This has been addressed in the meeting that had previous concerns. Any damages will be borne by the Group.

4. Convention News.

Venue is going to be the Old Museum (opposite the RBH). 

4. Bethania venue & Rent

Rent was paid for the previous GSF and the issues addressed in a diplomatic manner with the contra’s new person responsible for the room bookings. As a result the GSF will be meeting at the Winners Rd Daisy Hill venue.
