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
