Open with Serenity Prayer

New Business:

Term Limits and Recruitment of Hosts/ Co-Hosts

There was a motion made to Have an Accomplished host every night with a learning co-host. The motion was seconded and was opened for discussion.  It was noted that new co-hosts can be trained by Accomplished Hosts.  The training should not fall on John’s shoulders.  The goal will be to make available more service opportunities in our meeting as well as create a deeper bench of capable hosts.  

The Motion was voted on:  5 in favor, 1 opposed, and 2 abstained.  The Motion was passed.

It was agreed that recruitment of co-hosts will be saved until the new year.  This group will also need to agree on the criteria for co-hosts.
