Outgoing & Incoming forum Trusted Servants

From that ten-cent phone call and a cup of coffee to AA's General Service Office. What's your take on service?

Jack I have no doubt that service will continue to find it's way to your capable hands! Thanks for serving here!

Thanks to all who, past and present, have kept this meeting open. After a few years absence from the forum (but not from the Fellowship), it's nice to see so many friendly e-faces are still here. I've dipped in and out of the e-meetings over the years, but this group was a really significant way of keeping daily contact with the fellowship, the people power and programme, in the early days (I think particularly of my time in service posting the 'Daily Reflections'). Negotiating the third legacy in the internet era has been fun and rewarding.

Hi Oliver! I had found my time in posting the Reflections a good bit of service too. However, and perhaps like always, a selfish element exists! I need the Daily Reflections as I use the board to stay in daily/constant contact with AA and the principles of the program.

Needless to say, it has paid off way more than I could have ever anticipated! My rotation as a Trusted Servant is coming up... your timing is perfect should you wish to begin the daily postings again!!

Thanks, Paige, for your message and your service. Who knows? No such thing as a coincidence in AA!

A big heartfelt thank you to PaigeB and Sally for your service as mod for the last two years!!

(clap clap clap clap clap)

This was a formal rotation, as our limit of unelected service here in e-AA is 2 years. I always love it when someone works up to the last minute here!

Thank you BOTH and we plan to see you around!!!

(please)

And welcome back Mike O, who took the 6 months off service after his 2 year term ended in February. Now he's back and better than ever :-)

Thanks Mike for your willingness to be of service!!!
