The virtual Town Hall on June 18 was attended by almost 300 members. We gained valuable information from those who joined us and have received positive feedback that the information presented was useful and appreciated. Considerations for resuming face-to-face meetings were reviewed along with dialog about the concerns our groups are faced with today. All of the information from the meeting is posted here.
With the news of an increase in local COVID-19 cases, reopening will be delayed. The poll results from the Town Hall reflect that our community is also being patient. We have an opportunity to use this time to continue working together in planning for a safe and sustainable return to in-person meetings.
It became clear that members want to explore possibilities for Hybrid Meetings and discuss liability issues/waivers. We are scheduling another Town Hall for July 16 from 6:30 to 8:30 PM to cover these topics and to continue our open dialog. Additional will be posted on aasfmarin.org and sent out in the next update, but please mark your calendars now.
The July Intergroup Meeting will be on July 1, therefore we are hosting our monthly orientation for new IGRs on June 30.
Other events and service committee meetings, including GGYPAAs 4th of July Marathon are posted on our events calendar.
Our Intergroup Archives Committee is still looking for you to support an effort to capture this unprecedented time in AA’s history where nearly all meetings in the Bay Area have become virtual. We want to ensure that these experiences are recorded so future generations of AAs can understand this time and draw on the resiliency and innovation demonstrated.
Please fill in your responses here to ensure that your group history is represented in our Archive. Suggestions to help you get started are included and multiple entries for each meeting are encouraged!
Please share this information with your social media communities and encourage your A.A. fellows to subscribe to The Buzz. All of our prior updates can be found here.
All decisions will be re-evaluated as the situation changes; we are doing our best and appreciate your support and understanding.
