Welcome to the Delegate's Corner
Information about and from our Area Delegate.
Delegate's Corner - March 20, 2017
Happy Spring Everyone!
We have completed 5 Pre-Conference workshops. Many thanks to all DCMs for getting together and hosting in the Orlando area, Brooksville, Ocala, Gainesville & Jacksonville. Upcoming are Seacoast and Daytona!
Some of the hot topics from the agenda items seems to be:
- A new book from A.A.W.S. proposed, Bill Wilson's conference talks from 1950 to 1970. These never before published talks were found while indexing tapes at the General Service Office. What a wonderful look at the past! Also included in the book are talks by Class A (Non-Alcoholic) trustees! Let me know at the assembly in April if you want this book published or not. Rumor is that it will sell for somewhere in the teens!
- Request to add a YPAA subcommittee to the Conference Committee structure has prompted discussion on both sides of the issue.
- There is a Cooperation with the Professional Community (CPC) request for developing a LinkedIn presence, this too has resulted in enthusiastic dialogue.
- In Public Information, the committee will be reviewing development of Google for Non-Profits, Twitter and Instagram. We won't take sense of the body on these items, but I'm sure we'll see them back again perhaps as Agenda Items looking for our input.
Of course, all of these subjects and many more will be covered in workshops at the April Area Assembly, April 7-9, 2017 in Gainesville. If you want to know more about Social media, especially since there are quite a few Agenda Items referencing these (even though most are for review by the committee only), there is a workshop planned for 10am - "Understanding Social Media and A.A." There will be a panel and then I will address the agenda items relating to several "social media" questions.
Now, I have heard some concerns about the fact that I am so busy! I am never too busy for any event you would care to invite me to. I love coming out to see you! If I have a free calendar on the date you give me, it is yours!
Next Saturday, March 25th, I will be in Brevard County addressing Districts 12A, 12B, 15 and 23. See flyer at this link: http://www.aanorthflorida.org/events/2017-03PreConferenceMERRIT-ISLAND.pdf. Later that day, I will be at From the Heart for a panel on relationships, see flyer at this link: http://cflintergroup.org/flyers/RelationshipstoGod.pdf

The Language of the Heart
This we owe to A.A.'s future: to place our common welfare first; to keep our Fellowship united. For on A.A. unity depend our lives and the lives of those to come.
