Weekly Topic Leader Message

My name is [ Weekly Topic Leader Listkeeper Name ]. I am an alcoholic, and I’m also your Weekly Leader Listkeeper. I am taking volunteers for the [ time period ].

Here is the calendar of our upcoming leaders scheduled to chair. A big GROW thank you to all who are committed to growing in service.

Month: [ Month ]
[ Date, Name ] Step Meeting
[ Date, Name ]
[ Date, Name ]
[ Date, Name ] Service Meeting [February and August only]

Here is your opportunity to volunteer to lead a weekly meeting, choosing a topic that relates to your individual experience, strength and hope or a topic you would like to hear about, that relates to alcoholism recovery. The requirements necessary to lead a meeting are 90 days of continuous sobriety and a member of GROW for more than 30 days.

[The April 2019 GROW business meeting designated the first meeting of the month to be a STEP MEETING. Please limit your lead share to the step of the corresponding month.]

[The October 2021 GROW business meeting designated the last meeting of February and August to be a SERVICE MEETING. Please limit your lead share to Service in AA.]

If you would like to volunteer, just hit reply and let me know which available date you would be willing to lead. Here are the available dates:

[ Month, Day ] Step Meeting
[ Month, Day ]
[ Month, Day ]
[ Month, Day ]
[ Month, Day ] Service Meeting [February and August only]

We try to give thoughtful attention to those who would like to lead a meeting around their A. A. anniversary. If the date requested is already filled, you will be offered another available date. Around Wednesday or Thursday of the week before you’re set to chair, I’ll contact you and pass on the meeting format. If, for some reason you cannot do the meeting on your selected Sunday, please let me know as soon as possible so I can find a replacement leader.

If you would like to be added to the on-call meeting leader list, please reply and let me know. You will be added to a list of volunteers who are willing to quickly post a weekly topic when the scheduled chair is unavailable. The only requirement is that you are available to check your email every Saturday/Sunday and respond quickly to a request from the Weekly Leader Listkeeper, so she can find someone to chair in a timely manner.

I look forward to hearing from each and every one of you. The topic meeting is a great way of saying “hi” and letting us all get to know you better. Thank you for your participation and thank you for letting me be of service.
