I am back home and settled into the beginning of a "new year" for Region 1, following a very successful Assembly and a truly wonderful Convention!
Assembly hosted 26 delegates this year, representing 18 of our 24 Intergroups which is the highest number of Intergroups represented to date! Thank you again to all the delegates who provided this service to their Intergroups!
This year we offered some learning sessions and that received a big thumbs up! We hope to continue to provide these sessions at future Assemblies, in addition to the regular work of bylaw, policy and rule reviews, elections and financial review.
Convention was so inspiring! Thank you so much to Teryl, our keynote speaker! A huge thank you to the Oregon Intergroup led by Beverly and Vee for the amazing weekend. 193 people were rocketed to the fourth dimension! Thank you to all the session speakers, all of the registration, decoration, hospitality, greeting, ways & means, entertainment and countless other volunteers who really made this a wonderful experience for all of us.
The 2014 Region 1 Assembly and Convention will be held at the Hampton Inn, Bellingham, Washington. Watch for more details as the months progress. We will be dividing up the tasks of putting on a Convention among all of our Intergroups for 2014 - Together We Can!
