Secretary Report for April 2016 El Farolito and website

What an amazing, exciting, energetic Assembly we just finished. I have the luxury of enjoying a few days after the Assembly at a friend’s home here in Taos so I’m typing all my reports looking out at the snow capped mountains and tonight I will venture into town for a women’s meeting. No TV, no internet, no distractions just a few days alone for reflection before returning to the “real” world and submitting all these reports. What a gift.

We sold out of the English AIPs I brought with me. L thought 100 would be sufficient. I ended up giving someone my personal copy and will be mailing 2. Luckily, I have a bunch in my storage unit. If you didn’t get one and you need it send me an email secretary@nm-aa.org and I’ll arrange for you to get it and I will bring a supply to the Convention and the next Assembly planning meeting.

I want to thank everyone who helped me through this first Assembly..Camille a new GSR from D2 got to do Area service on Sunday morning by passing out the bid, Michelle B for the loan of her mini paper cutter so I didn’t have to use scissors to cut up those tiny strips of paper, Ellen R for showing me one more time how to work the recorder, Dylan for bringing me water on Sunday morning so I could take my antibiotics on schedule, Teresa and Marsha for coaching on the Sobriety Countdown and to all of you for love and hugs and enthusiasm for this program. (and the incredible baked goods) I can guarantee you that I would not have noticed or appreciated these small gifts when I was drinking.

Expenses: Travel and lodging for the Assembly $125.24, printer ink and paper $33.99 and printing of Spanish AFI $126.18.

Thank you for the opportunity to be of service and I will see all of you soon but until then keep on trudgin’.
