August Board meeting highlights

In an effort to foster greater communication with the Home Groups that are served by Greater Seattle Intergroup we have created a one page info sheet that can be quickly shared at your group’s business meeting. For a detailed review of our Business Meeting please read our minutes in the High & Dry, GSIGs monthly newsletter can be found on our website under the Intergroup tab.

  • The new improved GSIG Website is Live (and you’re using it right now)! Check out all the great new functionality with maps and lots of ways to search for meetings.
  • 4 hour Group phone-answering shifts are available. Traditionally Groups came to the Intergroup Office to answer phones, but with new technology that is no longer a requirement but is still an option. Ask your group if they are interested in this type of service work. If you can help, Please contact Anita at 206-587-2838: Shifts are 2pm-6pm or 6pm-10pm.
  • The Service Committees at GSIG are doing some important work, if you are interested in service work please contact a committee chair to see how you can get involved:
    • Accessibility needs Russian speakers and is planning an October Event to raise funds for ASL interpretation for the 2019 BLA.
    • PI/CPC is working with Dist 18 to provide schedule books to Police and Fire in South King Co. and is looking for 12 step volunteers.
    • H&T needs people interested in taking AA panels into Treatment Facilities.
    • Corrections Committee needs people willing to bridge for exiting inmates.
  • 2020 Committee has proposed a change to the Intergroup Zone system and the Greater Seattle Intergroup Board is seeking input from the groups. Please get your comments to us for discussion at the September 18th Board meeting.
    • Does your group have a Zone Rep AND a GSR?
    • Does your group have representation at the District AND the Zone?
    • Or does your District combine the 2 meetings into one?
    • Would direct representation by the groups at the GSIG Board Meeting facilitate the 2 way exchange of information?
  • The Special Events Committee needs you! Please call Intergroup at 206-587-2838 if you are interested in helping to plan our fun Fall Events!
