CHAIR’S REPORT

Courtney G., Chair: eaichair@foodaddicts.org

  • The FA Business Convention is coming up, June 3-5th in Danvers, MA. We hope to see many of you there!
  • To access the Convention Ride and Lodging list, log into the website and go to the Convention page, scroll down to “Service Opportunities” and add your name if you can provide a ride, share a room, or house someone around the time of the convention. Members in need of a ride or lodging can reach out to members on the list and coordinate with them. 
  • If you booked a hotel room for the Convention and have decided not to use it, please consider posting this information on the Ride and Lodging list so that another fellow can take your place. If you don’t find any takers, PLEASE RELEASE YOUR ROOM ASAP. FA will be charged a fee for any hotel room booked at the special convention rate which is not used. 
  • Many fellows attending from out of town like to “come early and stay late,” to attend additional FA meetings and exchange experience, strength, and hope. In addition to attending meetings in Massachusetts, you may want to visit New Hampshire and Maine, which are in relatively close driving distance from Danvers. In fact, there are three FA Information Sessions already scheduled in Maine for Wednesday, June 1 at 7pm First Congregational Church, 167 Black Point Road Scarborough, ME. Also, Monday, June 6 at 6:30pm and Saturday, June 11 at 8am at the Larrabee Village Administration Bldg. 30 Liza Harmon Dr. Westbrook, ME. Details: Patty R. 207-233-7947. 
  • Please note that Eastern Area Intergroup will not be meeting in the month of August 2016. We will meet each month through July 2016 and then resume in September 2016, refreshed and ready to dive into fall service activities. Individual committees may decide to meet by conference call. Please consult with your committee chair for updates.
