6th Annual Archives Workshop
What A Success

Volume 1, Issue 7

What can I say but it just gets better and better. It was a Grand time at the 6th Annual Archives Workshop held in Louisville Kentucky. The weekend was perfect. A ride down to the Ohio River made for a good break on Saturday afternoon.

Who is supposed  to see that the Old-Timers introduction to Alcoholics Anonymous  is recorded and Archived in your Groups or District's Repository?
You Are.
How are we to keep the record straight without the early mem

bers stories? It has been very rewarding for me personally to seek out some of the Long-Timers in my area and inquire if they would be willing to sit  in reflection for approximately  one hour and tell me of their first contact with AA. We have

Guidelines that prompt us to ask leading questions that really make it easy. I've been turned down only once. It seems that they understand the importance of Keeping the Record Straight. Make it a point to get all your Area Long-Timers on Tape Soon.
