H&I Needs You NOW! There are alcoholics out there who are sufferings

 Please check the link below to look over the 41 panels that currently need a leader who will take a commitment for ONE HOUR PER MONTH. All you have to do is recruit a few panel speakers, share the Zoom info with them, and show up as scheduled! After that, it’s just like panels have always been. Some of these panels may in fact be filled, but not properly documented. If you are leading a panel that appears as OPEN on the schedule, please contact Bob Ungs (562) 477-0458 to have the schedule updated.

Nearly all of these are still on Zoom. If you would like to take a commitment to lead a panel, but need help with Zoom, help is available! Bob will walk you through the steps to get started and even start the Zoom session if needed. 

We’ve actually had to cancel panels recently due to lack of service volunteers. Scrambling each week to find a one-time leader for each open panel simply isn’t working. Please consider a commitment (one hour per month, with friends you choose, in the comfort of your own home!). Contact the person whose name is identified as SCHEDULER at the top of each list to sign up.

To quote (one of our founders) Dr. Bob’s Nightmare: Reasons to offer service to other alcoholics:

1.      Sense of Duty

2.      It is a pleasure

3.      Because in so doing I am paying my debt to the (wo)man who took time to pass it on to me.

4.      Because every time I do it I take out a little more insurance for myself against a possible slip.

We struggle to keep these panels filled during normal times. The pandemic has added another level of challenge to organization. We take a moment of silence at the end of our meetings for the alcoholics who are still suffering. Help them by carrying the message of hope. They need our help.
