at Central Office
To receive charitable status from the government we are required to make a couple of incidental changes to how our bylaws read. To do this we must have 75% of our members vote in favor of this action.
It is critical that all Intergroup Reps or their alternative attend this special meeting in order to hear the details and vote. If we don't have the required minimum attendance at this meeting, then no vote on the matter can be taken and our attempt to regain Charitable Status will be further delayed.
For more info, please read this memo from our Central Office Board chair.
Important Notice of Central Office Break In
This is an announcement to inform you that Central Office was broken into recently. Here are some key details of the incident.
1. What happened?
Central Office was broken into. We believe that someone unlocked a side door into the office without our knowledge, and then returned after hours to get access through that door into our office. Once through this door, the thief (or thieves) broke into our office manager’s office, and stole $553 in cash donations.
2. What was our response?
We called the landlord and the police. The police took fingerprints, which hopefully lead them to the thief (or thieves). One of our members repaired the drywall, and also installed a safe. All the locks were rekeyed as a precautionary measure. We would like to thank Jim R. for his quick response to our call for assistance.
Due to the nature of the break in, we are thinking this was an ‘inside’ job (i.e. done by someone with pretty good knowledge of the office).
We are going to investigate the cost of installing a web camera, so we can monitor the office 24/7.
If you would like to contact us about this matter, please e-mail the Central Office Board chair at firstname.lastname@example.org.
