Check In & Prayer Tom led us in prayer.
The minutes from June Meeting were approved.
Treasurer’s report The balance as of July 1 is $ 1211.37. Nothing out of the ordinary expenses. We have not received much from the Schwann’s campaign, which is now over.
Coordinator’s report He responded to a number of emails and phone calls which continue to come in. He will be meeting soon with the synod to discuss the staffing configuration. Donations were sent to the treasurer. Ed and Tom are speaking at laymen’s retreat. A newsletter will be coming out soon.
–Planning for next retreat–in Minnesota, held in conjunction with Lutheran’s Alive Again/Lutheran Recovery Network. It might be a couple years before it happens. The question is raised whether we want to do a FRLC retreat in between. It was suggested that we keep it simple if we do, and that people other than Ed do the work. Holden Village was suggested, although attendance was small the last time we went there. Hazelden renewal center was suggested, but it is difficult to get to from the airport. Bohdan and Melanie will talk about it before the August board meeting. We welcome input on this question.
-Speaker for next retreat: Melanie contacted a potential speaker through her booking agent and she might be a possibility. Melanie will draft a follow up email regarding our commitment to the 12 Steps of AA and her willingness to use the language and values of the program. Does she work the 12 steps and can she speak to them? She will send it to Ed for his input before sending it to her via this agent.
Review of Board membership list: we checked with everyone on the call to make sure it is accurate. The secretary will send it as a Word Document attachment to facilitating printing.
The meeting closed in prayer.
Next meeting: August 5, 2015 2:00 pm MDT/2 pm CDT/1:00 pm PDT/3:00 pm EDT 12:00 pm
