RD Update – February 2020

Conference Agenda Report (CAR) Workshops

Preparing for our workshops, I developed a Summary and Pros/Cons worksheet that we have used for both Area workshops so far. The worksheet is updated as new information is gathered.

This morning I was able to participate in a CAR workshop hosted by ENYR and GNYR covering motions 6-16 in the CAR with motion makers for each of the regional motions presenting their motions and taking questions from the participants. There were over 62 people in attendance, including a number from other countries.

We have Hosted 2 CAR workshops so far. MBA on Saturday, January 11 and LDA on Sunday, January 12. Both seemed well-attended and participation was strong. I’m happy to announce the Great Mojave has added a CAR workshop on March 8, from 1-4pm at Alano Club on Central Rd. in Apple Valley.

Sun, Feb 9 @ 1:30pm in Hemet – Southwest Area
Sun, Feb 16 @ 11am in Banning – CIRNA Office
Sun, March 8 @ 1pm in Apple Valley – Greater Mojave

The CAR and CAT are both available for download online at na.org/conference

CAR Summary with Pro’s and Con’s

This overview is an attempt to provide a balanced look at the implications and/or benefits of the various motions in the 2020 Conference Agenda Report (CAR). The goal of this document is not to convince anyone one way or another, but rather to provide groups with a balanced variety of information to make their own informed decisions.

This document will continue to be updated as we receive more pro/con information. Our goal is to keep the document to 10-12 pages.

RD Update – January 2020

Service is action. Get Involved. Ask Questions. Participate. Listen.
