CSO Meeting 1st July 2017


Update to local groups:

The special meeting, called below#, was held on the 1st July with 16 in attendance, including the Area B Delegate and the Eastern Area Trustee.

Then on Saturday 5th August 2017, the Annual General Meeting of the CSOSH was held. After much debate, rather than dissolve the CSO immediately, it was decided to elect an interim Committee including 3 members new to the CSO and 2 of the previous members (in an advisory capacity) to give more time for the new Committee members to

  • recruit others
  • review how and where the Committee meetings are run so they are less formal and
  • delegate responsibilities and tasks to local groups where possible.

Any local AA member or group who would like to be involved, or know more, please contact the new Committee via This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or call Steve on 0459 35 4449.

OR will the CSO Southern Highlands need to close?

The current members of the CSO first meet 10 years ago to plan and create a simple legal structure for the local groups to pool their donations to organise and pay for the above services to

carry the message to the alcoholic who still suffers

All current members will be stepping down at the AGM in August 2017.

If there are no local members and/or groups to take over, then the current members will need to move a motion to disband the CSO Southern Highlands and the above services cease.
