When Old is New: Retro SF Schedules

Intergroup recently made the decision to go back to in-house printing for the San Francisco meeting schedule. This decision allows us to reduce the cost (from $1.00 down to $.25) and to offer more frequent printings.

The outgoing booklet format was first introduced in 2004, prior to the robust website we currently enjoy and well before smartphones were commonplace and the Meeting Guide app (available free for iOs and Android) existed. With these tools now at our disposal, we one again pivot to meet the needs of our fellowship.

Are You a Skilled Graphic Designer?

All that being said, we have a request for a member with graphic layout and design skills to help us improve upon this “oldie but goody.” Please email aa@aasf.org if that’s you! And spread the word.

3 Weeknight Orientations for SF Hospital & Institution at Central Office!

Coming up this year:

For those who cannot make it to our regular monthly H&I orientation on the third Saturday of each month, we are hosting three additional Thursday night orientations:

April 26, July 26 and October 25 – all at 6:30 pm.

As you may know, H&I carries the message of Alcoholics Anonymous to the alcoholic who is confined primarily in hospitals, rehabs, corrections facilities & half-way houses. The commitment is to bring one meeting each month to a facility with a partner.

Volunteers are required to attend an orientation and to have six months of continuous sobriety.

Please join us and get involved in this amazing service!

A Message from NorCal H&I

As of September 2017, the H&I Committee has a negative year-to-date operating cash flow. This a result of:

  1. decreased Pink Can contributions from certain Areas and 
  2. increased requests for literature (in quite a few instances from the same Areas which have reduced their contributions). 

Sadly, in order to return to a fiscally responsible cash flow, we now need to reduce the literature orders we’re able to fill. We are asking all groups to be aware of the current financial situation in case they decided to stop passing the Pink Cans under the mistaken impression that H&I has too much money. 

Detailed financial information can be found on the Finances page of our website www.handinorcal.org and you can send a question to any member of our committee from the Contact page.

As always, we very gratefully thank you for your contributions.
