Like the GSR, the Central Office Rep is the solution to many of the group’s problems. The trusted servant as expressed in our Second Tradition entirely applies to the Reps. The CO-Rep has the responsibility of keeping the group conscience abreast of what goes on in Lake & Sumter counties. We inform you with upcoming activities, group changes and reports from all committee chairs & Lake-Sumter Corrections. The 2nd Wednesday of each month we meet at Central Office & you’re receive a package of newsletters, meeting schedules, monthly financial report and minutes from our last meeting. You are also able to purchase literature & medallions for your group or just for you. As mentioned in our Second Concept, he/she has a delegated authority to act and speak in the name of the group conscience to our Central Office. There’s a lot of smiles & laughter.
Help organize fundraisers and activities such as our Golfing tournament, Unity Picnic, Christmas Gala and other social affairs. We’re always open for new suggestions in having fun and showing the newcomer that we know how to party the sober way!
