Group Conscience Minutes - September 2021September 1, 2021
Open the meeting
- TM read service prayer
- JB read 2nd Tradition
SM - doing a great job, everyone from out of town is really happy and wants to stay.
AM - compared with other groups we have basically no conflict or drama
TM - two thumbs up. Doesn’t always like Jaco, but this is where the best meetings are.
BE - rocking it.
JB - happy there’s been high meeting attendance, we must be carrying the message to the people in Jaco. Nice that people have moved back, even if just for a few months. The meeting makes it possible for people to stay in Jaco, otherwise they’d need to live somewhere else.
TH - feels like attendance has been good. We are out of phonelists. We didn’t make any progress on preparing a PI presentation. JR from Florida is planning on moving to Jaco and joining our group.
MR - much of the same, we had two old-timers with over 25 years who took the time to make a point of how good the recovery is. He lives here because of this group. We give Costa Rica a good rep. Slacking still on putting together a clubhouse committee.

We did the speaker meeting two different ways, sometimes the chairperson provided topics and sometimes the speaker came up with their own topic. Both ways are good, just discussing the
We haven’t enforced a policy about dogs anytime in the past few years.
Dogs can be distracting.
Some people enjoy having the dogs here.
Sometimes there are multiple dogs and it gets rowdy.
The owners can try to be personally aware of how they impact the atmosphere of recovery.
