68th Conference Report available…

Standard

The Final Conference Report is available. The Print Version will be disseminated later on, but for those eager to explore more than what CNIA Delegate reported, the digital anonymity-protected version is available to download at the CNIA Website on the Delegate’s Page. Note that it is the first item on the page, titled: 68th GSC Final Rpoert

Also, while this is the “scrubbed” version, it still should be treated as “restricted access” for AA member’s eyes only.

It is also available here (on the District Website) under the 2018 Conference Results Menu. This is a Pass-word Protected Area. For those that don’t remember, or even have, the PW for 2018, please email cniadistrict11@gmail.com. For ease of use, it is recommended that members use the CNIA Website that is not PW Protected.

CNIA Chair Report for September Accents

Our Finance Committee has been hard at work preparing the spending plan for 2019. Thanks to Herminia, Julie, Brad, Barb and Vikki for all of their hard work. Herminia presented the draft at the August ACM and I hope that a copy has made its way to your homegroup. We will be discussing the spending plan at the ACM again this month. The Finance Committee will be presenting the spending plan at the Assembly in October and I’m confident that we should be able to get it approved. I’m so grateful to all of your groups for your 7th Tradition support.
September starts the busy season in General Service. In addition to the Assembly in October, the Pacific Region Forum was September 7–9 and the 17th Local Hispanic General Service Forum (Foro) is December 2 in Lindsay, and District 53 has won the bid to host the La Viña Anniversary Regional Event celebrating the 23rd anniversary of La Viña next year. I’m also pleased to announce that CNIA is supporting the 3rd Annual Hispanic Women’s Workshop on December 1 in San Francisco.
Finally, at the August ACM, we discussed the date change for the 2019 General Service Conference. Because of some scheduling issues at the General Service Office, the Conference is being moved to May 19–25, necessitating changes to the Post Conference Assembly. The Pre-Conference Assembly can’t be rescheduled, but the Post Conference Assembly is moving to June 22-23 in District 17. Thanks to Barb for making this happen.

Thanks, as always, for your service to AA.
In service, Jenn D. CNIA Chair Panel 68

The 2020 International Convention of Alcoholics Anonymous will be held July 2–5, 2020 in Detroit, Michigan with the theme “Love and Tolerance is our Code.” A.A. members and guests from around the world will celebrate A.A.’s 85th year at this event with big meetings held Friday night, Saturday night and Sunday morning in the Ford Field Stadium. Other meetings, scheduled or informal, will take place throughout the weekend in the COBO Center in downtown Detroit.

We know many are excited about the International Convention and eager for detailed information. As the time gets closer, additional information about the Convention and Detroit, our host city, will be provided.

This website will be updated as more information becomes available. Also watch for articles in Box 4-5-9 that is mailed to the general service representative of every group in the U.S. and Canada listed with G.S.O. and is also posted on the website.

Information about Convention registration and housing reservations will be available in fall 2019. All necessary information will be included in the registration packet which will also be available in the fall of 2019. This packet will list numbers to call for answers to specific questions about housing, the program, etc. The information will be mailed to A.A. groups, offices and contacts around the world and posted on the website.

We look forward to seeing you in Detroit!
