Member Public Service Committee Report - March 2017

Hello Fellow ACAs

The Member and Public Services Committee is about to wrap up a very good year at the upcoming ABC and AWC. We hope you will consider getting involved in one of our subcommittees as we begin another exciting year of growth in our worldwide fellowship.

This past year we fulfilled our basic goals despite being shorthanded in the H&I subcommittee. Some the things we completed were:

Arranged for an information and literature sales table at the 2016 Florida AA state convention.

Arranged for a ½ hour radio show to interview two ACA members to be aired in the Southern California market. It will be broadcast April 10th at 7pm on station KSBR 88.5 or listen online at KSBR.org.

Set up a collaborative work platform (Slack) for members and trusted servants to better work on broadening the ACA Program as well as allowing the board to conduct business of the organization.

Participated in WSO November Strategic Planning session and established more goals and objectives to continue to spread the ACA message to the membership and to the public.

Established and solicited volunteers to staff the new Member Outreach Subcommittee to start facilitating and enhancing the communication of ACA WSO news and events to the broader membership.

Sent out several html e-blasts about the AWC World Convention since the MPS Outreach Committee's recent formation.

Programmed an email blast footer that will allow people to click on it to automatically be signed up to receive future newsletters.

Collaborated with the Website and Database Committee to create a "Newsletter Sign Up" button for the AdultChildren.org website to allow members to get on an email list by clicking on the button and filling out their information.

Oversaw the activity in the H & I, Intergroup and Delegate Training subcommittees.

Started the Delegate Training Subcommittee to better prepare delegates for service at the ABC and in their groups.

Worked on forming a Regional Service Committee in Florida working with 3 different intergroups.

We hope you are coming to the 2017 ABC & AWC in San Diego on April 20-23 and will decide to get involved with the WSO committee of your choice.
