Attendance: Five members were present on the cll.
Approval of Minutes: verbal report
Treasurer’s report: Excellent report by Treasurer

Coordinator’s report: Coordinator continues to lead with strength
Strong interest of Fellowship of Recovering Lutherans at Luther Seminary in St. Paul with presentation and interaction. Will be preaching at Luther Seminary about Alcoholism in near future. Coordinator’s congregation is considering funding this as a part of their captial campaign.
Newsletter and E-letter to be followed up on
Website reflected 6-8 people attending Thursday call-in meeting
Retreat for this year not working out so will look into Feb, 2015; invited an author but she declined at this time.
Originally, our 501C3 was started in Illinois so we need to have a person from there to file each year. A board member is willing to do so and already received the official letter from the state.

Old Business:
E-newsletter and quarterly newsletter is ready to go with a few more changes. More articles always welcomed.
LCMS relations: two books have been sent to the seminaries.
LCMS District office is being contacted but not sure who liaison is at this time

Next retreat: Recommendation from last month to not have a retreat this year of Fellowship of Recovering Lutherans. Review of discussion about every other year, possibly a cruise in Feb. Coordinator will facilitate details of a cruise considering the input.

New Business:
Letter of appeal to go out to all 214 members at Thanksgiving, reminding all of us what a gift we have been given in sobriety.
Posting Board Minutes on the website: remember confidentiality

Next meeting: December 3, 2:00 pm MDT/3 pm CDT/1:00 pm PDT/4:00 pm EDT
