As part of annual planning this year, GSRs identified making area more attractive as the body’s #1 priority. In subsequent meetings of the Fellowship Development Workgroup in Milwaukee and Waukesha to discuss how we could accomplish that goal, the issue of when area is held came up repeatedly. Members felt that the current schedule, which falls over dinnertime, was not ideal.
As a result, GSRs voted at the May area to change the meeting times for the Milwaukee Area Service Committee to the following, effective AUGUST. (The delay will give us plenty of time to inform groups.)
- Literature sales, area donations: 2:00-3:00 pm
- Area service meeting: begins at 3:00 pm
- H&I meeting: begins at 1:00 p.m.
Please help spread the word. Area will still meet on the second Sunday of the month, and the June and July areas will still be held at the regular times. (More information can be found on any copy of the area meeting list.)
Here is a flyer explaining the changes: Flyer

There will be a meeting on Sat., Dec. 15 to discuss the formation of a group service unit serving the Waukesha area.
According to the meeting’s flyer:
In order to better fulfill our primary purpose, carrying the message to the addict who still suffers, there will be a meeting to discuss the formation of a Waukesha County Group Support Unit as outlined in the 2011 Service System Proposal. Anyone and everyone is welcome, it is through this process we come to know both the groups’ and our HP’s will.
