The message Central Office has been conveying for about a year is that we have surplus funds. We wanted groups to reconsider how they donated their money based on us having funds in excess of our prudent reserve.
Central Office no longer has monies in excess of our prudent reserve. In June 2019, Central Office has dropped to below our prudent reserve. We have done this by lowering the price to purchase chips to cost and by donating money/literature to other AA functions where we saw an opportunity.
We kindly ask the groups to again reconsider their allocation of the donations made to take this into account. We would like to operate being completely self supporting from group contributions. We would like to keep selling literature and chips at cost in order help spread the message of AA and the 12 Steps.
