Key Points from the GSR meeting on Saturday April 10, 2010
Thanks to all that attended the meeting. We have a lot of work to do. Let’s get the word out.
• * Register: Attention all members that hold commitments at a meeting, district or world level; please go to crystalmeth.org and register your position and what meeting you represent.
• * Get into service: The district is growing and now it’s time for its members to step up and get into service. Currently we have a solid GSR base and we have committee leaders. What we need are members to serve on these committees. The following is a list of upcoming meetings that any member can attend and be of service.
1. Public outreach and information: Join Roger D. and be part of a team spreading the word of CMA throughout the community on Thursday April 22nd at 543 N. Fairfax 6:00 pm.
2. Helpline: Join Chuck C. and take a 4 hour shift answering the helpline. The next meeting is on Monday April 26th
3. Events planning: Join Dale G. on Cinco de Mayo (May 5th). The Los Angeles District has been asked to host the annual conference of the CMA world GSO. We will be putting together a 1 day event with workshops, a banquet, a speaker meeting and possibly a dance. The event is set for June 19th at the El Segundo Hilton. We are also on the planning stages of our first L.A. retreat tentatively set for October.
For the location of meetings 2 & 3, please talk to your GSR’s at the end of your meetings and they will forward your phone number to the committee chairs.
• * All committees are in need of volunteers. Volunteering is a great way to be of service and to give back to your community. If you are interested in any other committees go to cmainla.com and send a message to the chairman of the committee you would like to be a part of join us at the next district meeting.
