and that the money come from the Memorial Fund. CARRIED.
3. Follow Up to Debbie’s Meeting with Structure Task Group -- Debbie joined a meeting of the
structure task group in October. We have restructured the house groups to increase the
size of the groups and decrease the number of groups. The structure task group is currently
Auna Brown, Iris Yuill, Val Garlick and Sue Hiltz supported by Beth Kerr. They have been
meeting a couple of times a year to support the house group structure. There was
consensus that some level of support to the house groups going forward was necessary.
We agreed that this could not easily be passed off to the Leadership Team because there is
already enough on the Leadership team agenda. We discussed how we might go about
replacing people on the Structure task group and that having some fresh ideas and fresh
perspectives might enhance the work of the task group. We have some members on the
structure task group on the Leadership Team which facilitates communication but we might
want to build in something structural to ensure this. We may also want to think about how to
continue visioning around volunteers for the future.

Leadership Team

For all of its faults, it gives most hardworking people a chance to improve themselves economically, even as the deck is stacked in favor of the privileged few. Here are the choices most of us face in such a system: Get bitter or get busy. | Bill O’ Reilly
