5.) RCM Report                   

  January, 2016

 Greetings GTOANA!
The last Mountaineer Region quarterly meeting was held on the weekend of January 9th and 10th, 2016,  what follows are some of the notes I took at that meeting. This was my first trip as RCM and I am absolutely positive I will leave something out of my report, that's why we have a Regional Secretary that completes the Regions minutes. They will be sent our our ASC Secretary to include in future minutes.
H&I Subcommittee:
*Joe B hadn't much to report besides all was well within the region with regards to H&I. Furter he announced that any area within the region in need of an H&I workshop can contact him and he will take the time to travel to any area and facilitate a workshop.
*The NANA Area RCM (Greg Y) announced that they were more than willing to pass the Western Regional Jail's H&I back to the GTO Area, they are waiting our H&I Subcommittee's getting members willing, qualified and certified to carry the message into that facility.
*70 Basic Text's were donated to our Region from one of the Eastern US Regions (not sure) they were given to Joe B through our DCM and he will be responsible for distributing them directly to different facilities within our region. There are new H&I's going on throughout the Regions many Area's and they will get them first. I did ask for a few for the GTO Area's H&I Subcommittee and he said (Joe B) that he will take care of distributing the Text.
PR Subcommittee:
Billboard Proposal:
*A member from the Morgantown Area (Pam T) who's family owns a piece of land that currently has a Billboard on it has offered to let the Mountaineer Region use it (indefinately) provided the Region pay for the six foot by twelve foot (6' x 12') banner that it would require to cover it. Cost to the region is an estimated $494.00. I believe the issue is still up in the air, I will provide clarification as I get it.
Phone line:
*Barb W (our Regional Phoneline Chair) has requested an updated list from each Area of those that have had a phoneline workshop. The GTO Area recently had a Phone Line Workshop at our New Years Eve function, facilitated by NANA's Wes R and I informed her that we would get our updated information to her as soon as possible.  Also she needs to know what hours you'd prefer to be called.
Policy workshops:
*It was suggested that ALL Regional Officers attend a Policy Workshop. Since the Convention continues to grow (two speakers on Friday and Saturday night) there are more servants needed to cover those events i.e. Audio Chair and Vice Chair. This may not belong in this section, I'm playing the (I'm new) card.
Merchandise Subcommittee:
It was suggested that we (MRSCNA) use a different vendor for the clothing and some of the other printed items we sell at our Convention. Currently we are using Glenn's Sporting Goods (we have for years). We always make back what we spend on merchandise but the profit margin is very narrow, mainly because WE charge the same price for all sizes. For example on a tye died t-shirt the price for a small is the same as the price of an XL, XXL and so on even though WE pay different prices for all shirts (by size). A member (whom I believe has a print shop) is the one suggesting the need to compare prices elsewhere. It was discussed (by our Convention Chair) and others that we've gone elsewhere in the past and gotten inferior quality merchandise, shirts that fell apart within a year or so.
Convention Subcommittee.
*Since the Mountaineer Regions Convention has continued to grow extra speakers have needed to be added to the itenerary, the main reason for this is because it is a serious violation of State Fire Code to have the dining hall filled with standing room only, secondary is that we are trying to not outgrow Cedar Lakes as a site for our conventions. With the changes their are also added expenses. As a result the Region has gone from reserving 11 rooms to 17 rooms in the Holt Lodge, the extra rooms cover lodging for the additional speakers as well as the rooms for all MRSCNA's elected trusted servants. With the addition of extra speakers there is also a need for additional servants in the Audio department.
*In 2017 and in 2018 The MRSCNA Spring Conventions will be held the weekend BEFORE Mothers Day, please plan ahead for this change.
*Voting took place for upcoming speakers (I was not allowed to be in the room because I have a speaker resume in). That decision will be in the Regional minutes, whenever completed.
Back to groups:
*One item (Motion, and their may be more) coming back to groups with regards to funding (for the Fall convention and beyond) has to do with yours truly (The DJ) requesting to be paid for my services rather than being given a (single bed) in the Holt Lodge and being responsible for either selling the other bed to someone I know (preferably from GTO) or someone in the regional service structure finding a room mate for me, that cost whoever gets the bed anywhere from $110.00 to $120.00. My normal fee to anyone outside NA or AA is a minimum of $200.00 per hour, I am now expected to not only be there to play for 3 hours (10pm-1am) which is fine, I now have to be set up hours earlier in able to be set up for the dance which means I need to be set up before the 8pm speaker on Saturday night. Setup for an event like Ripley takes me a minimum of two hours. I have never complained about setup time before but I never had to be set up that early. I DO NOT like to be required to set up and leave my equipment unattended, setting up that early is an issue for me and my being the DJ is not service work, it is business, my request was to be paid $300.00 for doing the event and I will pay for my own lodging. Last Fall I had an event the Friday night Convention started and the last day (Sunday) meaning I showed up Saturday, set up, played for my agreed upon 3 hours and had to pack up and leave after the dance. So last Fall I was basically given a room that I could not use therefore I was not compensated for that event, the only one that benefited was the one in the second bed in that room that got a Holt package for about $120.00.
That motion was met with some resistance, there were a few members that said: Let's take it back to the groups and that would have held me in limbo literally until the next RSC meets in April, meaning that to keep that weekend open I could not book any other events. A motion was made (within the represented service body) to the RCM's and others in attendance to go ahead and pay me for my services in May and the groups will decide in the future if that's acceptable. The motion was passed unanimously by those that voted.  Those that decided my fee was too much (2 of the 3) said they would be on my side if I were to lower my price, aint gonna happen. If you've ever seen me set up you should understand why.  End of day 1.
*I left after the first day's meeting and returned home due to an unforseen issue within my family. I had intended on returning for Sunday's Regional meeting but that was not possible. I am unsure if the GTO RCM Alt was there for Sunday's meeting.
Thank you for allowing me to be of service - Tom F, your GTOANA RCM


 6.) Subcommittee Reports

 H & I SUBCOMMITEE REPORT FOR 1/8/16
Opened with prayer.   
Read the 12 Traditions and 12 Concepts.
Panel Leaders Reports Read:

 River Park Adult Short Term: Greetings from Monday morning river park 4 west h&i panel. All is going well. I have had awesome willingness from our members.  We go in at the same time and on time. Leave together and a clear message of narcotics anonymous  is being carried.  No problem or questions. Grateful to serve.
Rachel N

Greetings from riverpark adult h and I panel. Everything is going well and the message of hope is being carried. Thank you for the opportunity to serve, Josh B.

 The Farm: Hello Family,
Greetings from the Lifehouse Farm panel. For the most part, things have been going well and we haven’t had any dilemmas, yet, to speak of. While most of the people attending the meeting don’t seem to really care whether we are there or not, there are always a few that are nodding their heads and following along. Please don’t mistake that as being a passing of judgement, just a simple observation. We are connecting with those that we can connect with.
We personally met with the house manager, Kevin, and he seems to appreciate everything we’re doing and hasn’t asked us to do anything differently. Willingness hasn’t been too big of an issue. It seems to be a little more difficult to find members to participate but, then again, perhaps I should reach out more than what I have. We still have meeting schedules and still plan to go in this upcoming Tuesday (1/12/16). Thank you all for letting us be a part of the solution.
In Loving Service,
-Nick L.

St. Marys: Greetings, The St. Marys H&I panel I hold has gone in on time, and shared a clear message of NA. Willingness has been great. Nothing to report. Grateful to serve, Nate H.
River Park Adolescent Long Term: Hello from river park long term the meeting is going well. We have been opening and closing on time, we had some confusion about the alternate week going in. I did speak with a staff member when I was there and assured that we will be coming weekly  again. willingness has been good. The clients continue to be eager to participate. The life saving message of narcotics anonymous is being shared. It has truly been an honor to be the panel member and to participate in hospitals and institutions service in the GTO area. Grateful to be of service
Christa S.

 Things with the long term adolescent unit started off a bit rocky but seem to have worked themselves out. Due to past commitment issues, on our part, the facility did not have this panel on their schedule for 12/23/15. A full panel was prepaired and was on time, but due to lack of communication and confusion the life saving message was not brought in on that day. Communication was reestablished with the facility and we were refered to their contact. Big thanks to April P for the willingness to lead the pannel and set up communication on this confusing day. The pannel reestablished it commitment and returned to its normal time and date. The clients look forward to our meeting and were happy to know that we are not ending our commitment to a weekly meeting. Willingness level is good. I do currently need area schedules. Greatful to serve, Kristen S.

 River Park Short Term: Hello! We are meeting every other week at 7pm.  The last time we went in was this past Wed.  They were late bringing the clients back from the rec room so we were not started on time.  I will try to be proactive in making a call to them on the afternoon of our meeting to assure they are aware. I would also like to coordinate with the long-term members with reaching a contact person if they are the same & following with setting up a meeting with them to touch base.   Schedules are needed.  Pamphlets for newcomers would be appreciated.
ILS, Terri M

 Pinecrest: The meeting has been starting and stopping on time , the clients seem to be very interested for the most part on what we are talking about and participate willingly. John A
Meeting going well. I've been taking different people in every 2 weeks and the message of NA is being shared. No issues to report. Dalmas C

 Hello subcommittee,  Meetings have started and ended on time. Willingness has been great. A clear Narcotics Anonymous message is being carried to the females. Grateful to serve. Jenni H
Greetings from pine crest women's panel, willingness is good, we are going in together on time, the girls were a few minutes late but we started right away. The message is being carried although we did have an altercation with a staff member letting an outsider in to the meeting facility, but the situation was taken care of. Thank you
Grateful to serve

PR SUBCOMMITTEE
Greetings from PR Sub Committee, Things are going well in PR. Last month we received th Needle Exchange order and Ashley F and Elijah C went up on Wednesday, January 13th and set up our new literature rack. We put out all literature provided. We also hung up a few flyers. We are requesting $20.00 for Ip’s and schedules to fill the remaining slots and keep up with schedules. Flyer day went well. Flyers and fastening material were purchased and it was carried out. There wasn’t much willingness however with 5 addicts participating. Ultimately, it was a success. We contacted the work release center and they were not very receptive. They said they already have something in place for AA and NA. We will again reach out and try to discuss the issue with them to provide clarity at a later time. This month we are making efforts to reach out to Wes R from nana for guidance on a public service announcement. We submitted our PR Box order and the money obtained from area for it and expect it in the next week or two. PR is developing a contact sheet for anyone who wants it to have access to PR sub committee for any reason, including names and numbers and emails of our officers. For anyone who would like a copy of this list, please email Elijah C at elijahcrum@ymail.com or text him @ (304) 751-5051. (the email is correct as YMAIL, everyone always asks if its actually gmail, it is not gmail) We received an email with an updated policy to be posted on the website which will be forwarded to Jason L for posting. Josh B is going to reach out to our contacts again to see if they need any schedules etc. and to remind them that they can print their own from our website if need be. Nothing further to report.

We have an average attendance of 10-15 addicts which is mainly newcomers and the life saving message of NA is being carried. We do struggle with having experienced members share their experience, strength and hope. We do not have a donation for area at this time  Grateful to serve, Bruce A

Hello Family! We are happy to report that things are going fairly well with the Another Way Group. It appears that our attendance has picked up some over the past few weeks, but our meeting continues to remain small and intimate. We’re well stocked with literature and now have an updated meeting format (We’ve just cleaned up the wording and it doesn’t have a bunch of pen marks on it).
    As of January 11, 2016, our home group had a balance of $45.86 in our central account. We had decide to get more coffee, cups, and trash bags to meet our home group’s needs. We moved $25 into our Convention Reserve and that left us with $5, which we decide to donate to the area. Concerning the motion about establishing a reserve for the Literature Subcommittee, our group voted against this motion. We’re grateful to be involved.In Loving Service,  -The Another Way Group

 The Monday night together we can group is going well. The doors are open and literature is on the table. We are averaging around 50 addicts weekly.  We have no donation for area at this time.

Ashley F

 Greetings from Clean Possibilities! We continue to keep the doors open and carry the message to around 15 addicts weekly, on average. Coffee is hot and literature is on the table. We have begun offering this meeting in Candlelight, and are considering a change in format. We will keep Area apprised of any official changes so that they can be reflected in the meeting schedule. No official changes at this time. We continue to search for a new location in Barboursville, in order to carry the message to addicts in our area East of Huntington. We wish to humbly thank the Hope Without Dope home group for their generous donation of IPs and key-tag chips. Our budget remains meager, and we do not have a donation to area at this time, as we are saving to anticipate rent changes in a new location, and to buy literature, and a new coffee pot.  In loving service,  Sarah W.

 Greetings from the Hope turns to Faith group of Narcotics Anonymous. The doors open at 6pm and the meeting starts promptly at 7. Attendance is between 90-100 addicts seeking recovery. The coffee is strong and flowing as is the message of recovery. We have a $20.00 donation to area. Grateful to serve, Jimmy H

 Greetings from a New day, All is well, last speaker was awesome. We have no donation, things are pretty, some discussion of format change to include other possible formats. Such as writing, ask it basket and once a month loose discussion.  Loving services, Jason C

Average attendance is about 40, and we have no donation to area at this time. Thanks for letting me serve, Tate C

 Trust the Process We have settled into an avg attendance of 30 in our new location. We are happy to foster an atmosphere of recovery where addicts openly share their experience, strength and hope. We are now using a literature study format generally following the daily JFTs. Our needs are met and we have a $14 donation. Grateful to serve, T the P

 Hello Everyone: Sat Morning 10:00 AM meeting of NA (making amends) finds its doors open meeting growing with NA literature on table. Unfortunately we had a large order that had just come in burnt in our house fire. I am hoping that the insurance will replace it. Coffee and supplies on table. We are in need of area schedules.
