M. and approved by vote.


TREASURER: Steve T. reports finances are in good shape and last year’s books will be closed out. Answering Service,
however, is always seeking contributions from individual groups. The New York office apparently did not receive a $600
check for Spanish literature from the Treatment Committee so the check will be stopped and the situation will be
investigated and Spanish literature will again be ordered. In this regard, Walt K. suggested sing Debit Cards rather than
checks for the work of various committees. For instance, New York does not accept checks but will reimburse credit card
purchases. Investigation and discussion will continue.

Balance of $1467.31. In a written statement Art report we have logged 575 calls by the middle of January. Jamie is
continuing to serve in arranging schedules which is always a fluid endeavor due to work schedules etc.


LCM: Eileen will be absent until March but alternate John will continue work.
TREATMENT: No report from John. More schedules have been gathered and will be distributed.

WORKSHOP: No report. Brief discussion on canceling February workshop due to lack of information.
