Chairs report

A big thank you to Sue for organising the Evening at Doncaster Race Course to see “Madness” take centre stage, as usual a fabulous night. A huge thank you to Ian for organising the trip to Hunstanton, a rather windy day, however, many members enjoyed discounted tickets to “Sea World” courtesy of the CSSC web site. Sandra proposed a thanks to the Chair for organising the trip to the “Tatton Park Flower Show” and despite a very wet day everyone had a wonderful time.

The Chair had an email to inform the committee that Lincoln County and Crown Court were to be visited on the 8 August on a HO recruitment drive. Steve emailed the Recruitment Team with a copy of Lincoln AAs “What’s On“ however, we have not received a reply from the Recruitment Team on whether this was a successful event.

The mobile phone that was purchased for the specific use of the Organiser on our events needs a new SIM card. Rather than purchase a new one costing £4.00 per month, with the agreement of the committee, it has been decided that the Organiser will give out slips with their own mobile number on for all the people on the trip/event to use in any emergency. To conform with Data Protection these will be collected at the end of each trip/event.

Regional update

Sue sent Dudley an email regarding her concerns for 2020 funding when the new rules re-allocation come into effect and how this might throw up potential budgeting issues for Lincoln AA. Dudley has kindly agreed to raise our concerns to Regions and HO.

The committee agreed that Gill and Steve will attend the Midlands Region Conference on the weekend of the 12/13 October as the Lincoln AA delegates.

Action points


Quality street

The NuTicket training will be presented by Michelle Chelu tomorrow night (28/08/2019) for the five Lincoln AA committee members that still need this training. The "complaints return" was sent back to HO by the Chair on the 10 August as a nil return.

Diary Dates (full information on the CSSC website)

Two very important things to remember please:

1) All payments must be made in full at least 2 weeks before the event unless otherwise stated and sometimes a deposit may be asked for refunds will only be considered in extenuating circumstances and assessed on an individual basis.

2) Please ensure you use your new CSSC membership number on all claims as failure to do so causes extra work for our treasurer checking your membership details resulting in delayed payments.
