Forums Coordinator

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

So it it formal ! Congratulations Ann! I have no doubt in your ability to wade through all this opportunity sends your way. (((hugs)))

And thank you Karl. You are a huge part of my sobriety today. I am not sure that I would have all the joys & opportunities that online AA has to offer if it had not been for your patience and guidance when I first tripped over a pothole and landed in the e-aa forums. Thank you for trusting my sanity when I doubted it myself.

Please don't go too far. Chair of the e-aa Biz meeting or on up to a position in OIAA? :wink:

Thanks, Karl, and you didn't mess it up, and thanks, Ann for taking over.

Thanks Karl. What a great story yours is. You came on board willing and embraced the 12 steps quickly and I enjoyed your workshop on the Big Book. That was a wonderful experience. And the leadership coordinating this forum. Hats off.

And welcome Ann. Its always a pleasure to have you around.

Whether or not they full realized this at the time, Karl and Ann are two folks who have truly made a specific difference for me over these past three years or so.

My gratitude is deep.
