Josh B. – ASC Treasurer
  1. Subcommittee Reports
Activities
Greetings ASC

Good day, I apologize that I am not there (August 2016) to facilitate a subcommittee and I still do not have an acting subcommittee vice chair. Today my parents are throwing me a (not so surprising) surprise birthday party, fortunately I'll only be turning 50 once. Last month's report with the financial breakdown for our camp out was sent to Ryan D as an attachment and in standard e-mail text form. The bottom line financially is that I am to return $145.47 to our ASC treasurer (I have the check) and we continue to wait for a refund (which is past it's expected due date) in the amount of $384.00. I have reached out to Recreation.gov whom is the ones that received the reservation fee's and the Army Corps of Engineers whom offered us the option of still using East Lynn Lake the weekend of our camp out (even though it'd been under water the night before), I am powerless over the outcome thus far. Our next scheduled event is in October, either the 22nd or 29th, and to be held at either First Presbyterian Church or the Barnett Center, next month I will hopefully have a date and location cemented. Activities Vice Chair is a position that is always handled within the subcommittee itself, if you want to be the face of change step up, be nominated and accept the position because soon (like in February of 2017) In Loving Service will be upon us and it'll be the job of the next activities chair and vice chair to facilitate these events. Robbie C has acted as vice chair and I could not have pulled off the events we've had this year without his help and the help of many, many more. Be the change you wish to see within our area. I sincerely love the GTOANA, it's been a huge part of my life and my recovery would not have been possible without it. Any questions you have my number, just in case (304) 654-1305.

Grateful to be of service

Tom F - GTOANA Activities Chair 



PR

Greetings from Pr subcommittee,
Everything is moving along.  A successful flyer day with the next one to be announced soon. A new team was established, Liz K and Andrew V, to handle schedule day and communications. The literature that was purchased at the last Asc was delivered to first steps with out issue. Myself and Josh A also stopped by the needle exchange to stock up ips and we are in the process of printing off up to date schedules to be delivered there and to be used for the upcoming schedule day. We discussed and set a date to inventory the pr box so that we may determine whats needed for to filled so that literature will be more readily available when needed. Our Web servent is checking area email regularly if any home groups need an announcement add to the website send them to Gtowebservent@gmail.com. A couple issues were brought to our attention about the Google map links on the website not directing to the correct locations which is being addressed. Along with the meeting schedule on the resource site Help4WV is severely out of date and would we like this to be passed along to the regional service committee.
Grateful to serve,
Ashley F

Christa S.
Things are well at the Monday morning 10:30AM adult short-term panel at Riverpark. Willingness is
adequate; it's a hard time slot for willingness. We have averaged about 8 clients in attendance. Some
groups are more attentive than others. Overall, the message is being carried here and there still is very
much a need for this panel. I have found the experience so far to be very enjoyable. It is a pleasure to
serve alongside you all on the front lines.
Nick C.
Hni is going well at pinecrest. We arrive on time, together and leave on time together. The

Hospitals and Institutions Minutes July 2016
The meeting was called to order at 6pm.
The traditions and concepts were read.
Group reports were read:
The Monday morning 10:30AM H&I panel at Riverpark is rocking and rolling. Averaging about 8 in attendance each week, they have been very receptive and happy to see us overall. The primary purpose is being carried. Trusted servants, you rock!
Nick C.
 My first panel at Trenton House was on June 14. We were well received by the residents of the house. 
The meeting started and ended on time. The panel consisted of myself, Josh B., and Robbie C. We read 
readings and the JFT meditation, and then each panel member shared with the residents. Following the meeting, we joined the residents on their back patio and talked for several minutes in good fellowship. On June 28, I, Johnathan R., and Nate H. went to the residence, but no one answered the door. Nate contacted Will Lockwood, director of operations for Lifehouse, who informed us that we were 
supposed to have been notified that the residents had traveled that day to assist flood victims in the Clendenin area. Will apologized for us not getting the message. A few days later, I contacted Will via FB Messenger to let him know I'm the panel leader now and he can contact me if the schedule needs adjusted in the future. I also told him I thought it was great that the residents had gone to help the flood victims – it was a good reason we weren't able to conduct the panel that night. Will, at that time, advised me that Kevin Lloyd (phone
Hello from HNI at Riverpark Adolescent Long term! We have started late due to staff, but been allowed to stay late the full hour, and the lifesaving message of Narcotics Anonymous has been carried. The adolescents have been very receptive! However ran into some willingness problems, but was able to go in with a full panel the second time. Thank you for allowing me to serve! Janice E.
Greetings, from Pinecrest meeting of hospitals and institutions. We have been opening and closing on time. Willingness is good. We go in together and leave together.

The Pinecrest female wing HNI panel is going well. Willingness has been fantastic. We are going in on time and together. The lifesaving message of narcotics anonymous is being carried. I could use some schedules. The women have been excited about recovery and attentive. Grateful to serve. Kristen S.
HNI is going well at Pinecrest. The clients are very receptive the facility is completely in sync with what we have going on. Panel members have been showing up on time and leaving together on time. No problems at this time. Thanks for the opportunity to serve Trevor G.

Missing reports from Nick C. Riverpark adult
No report from Elijah C St. Mary's 
As far as the jail goes we are still working to get enough people approved to go in. Applications and background checks are going to take a bit longer before we can have orientation dates. Hoping to have those before next month's panel
DeeDee discussed the importance of good scheduling and leadership skills on the part of the panel leaders.
New business:
St Mary's is having nursing students come into h and i panel. Cassie’s H. raised the question of whether or not that is the best environment for the students. Possible we could educate them on other meetings.
Josh B wants to take on the responsibility of contacting the facility contacts and seeing what we could do for them. We need Riverpark contact and adolescent and adult have different contacts.
Janice E. discussed the need to try to have workshops on days other than weekends. Wednesday the 20th at 6pm will be the next workshop at the weed and seed.
Trevor G. asked about members with significant clean time need one every year. The answer is yes. One is needed every year.
Kristen S. asked about formats with readings for panels. Do we want kits with panels so we have a consistent format? The format does not have to be identical. We also discussed whether hugging and the hug circle are permitted. We also discussed how much profanity is acceptable and that we are there to set the example especially among adolescents. This discussion led to is feel g panel leaders need to have strong leadership 
qualities and remind the panel members beforehand.
Treatment facilities in Ashland do they need help? We will table the discussion until next meeting. There was also discussion about Mildred Batemen.

Grateful to be of service, Jason R.
