describe flyer

I know everyone has been informed that the Mini conference and Area Assembly has been canceled. Since we are not having the mini conference our Delegate is asking you to please give him any thoughts and or ideas you or your group/district have relating to any of the conference agenda items. (Those are what was in all the packets, including those who received workbooks and kits) we have been handing out at all the committee meetings over the last two months.

He would prefer you send him your thoughts, ideas and feedback via e-mail: at delegate@area31aa.org but is open to receiving feedback what ever way is best for you. You could call him (his number is in the Area 31 Service Directory) if you are more comfortable by phone or you can call to make other arrangements.
