I have a meeting I’ve read the Guidelines … and?
You will go to your first meeting as your alternate’s speaker. Your alternate can show you where to go, where to park your car, and generally answer your questions about this particular meeting. After that you begin the rotation. If you have questions after your first meeting call your “Coordinator”.
Who is my Alternate?
His/her name and phone number is on the meeting list where you found your meeting. Call your Alternate to set the schedule for the rotation and to ask questions about details such as parking, etc.
Who is my Coordinator?
His/Her name, and phone number are at the top of the page – on the top of the list where you found your meeting. Your Coordinator will contact you once a month to ask if your meeting is going well. Be responsible and respond to your coordinator. This process helps BCIC update the meeting list. It’s our only way of knowing if a meeting is being covered. If you would rather you may call your coordinator to report the status of your meeting. If you have questions, or you wish to report any irregularities about your meeting, call your coordinator. If you can’t take your meeting and your Alternate can’t cover for you call your coordinator.
I went to the Clearance Training … am I cleared?
You will receive notification from your Coordinator and BSO.
Do I have to buy A.A. Literature to take to my meeting?
No. The “Literature Table” is available at the monthly business meetings on the 2nd Saturday of the month at 10 AM at:
12 Step House – 205 SW 23 Street, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33315
A “standard packet” of two Big Books and Conference approved pamphlets is available to everyone doing a BCIC meeting.Finally, the answers to almost any other question will be found in the Institutions Guidelines or by calling your Coordinator. And, when in doubt, “The Twelve Traditions Illustrated” will guide you to the answer.
