Early Morning Zoomers


Minutes 4/21/24 Business Meeting

Chairperson Paul led the group in the Serenity Prayer and read Tradition Four: Each group should be autonomous except in matters affecting other groups or A.A. as a whole.

Old Business

The Newcomer’s Package is on the website with contact numbers and selected brochures. The group discussed the benefit of sending brochures in the mail which would involve a service position.  We need to also indicate that we can send a Big Book to newcomers. 

It was discussed that in meetings in which a newcomer attends, that our common practice has been a same gender member invites the newcomer to join the breakout room after the meeting, while also inviting other same gender members to join. In the breakout, more 1-1 support and guidance can be given to the newcomer, as well as member phone numbers.

Next Month, an update will be given by the ad hoc Committee.
