Here's what's going on......It's Gratitude Month

There are in-person Thanksgiving Alcathons this year. They are being held in Districts 5, 14, and 18. There is also a District 4 Alcathon, which we plucked from the Area 48 NENY Newsletter.

District 1 has started a planning committee for a Virtual Christmas Alcathon; details for participating are below.

The Hudson Valley Cluster of Area 48 NENY is hosting a Virtual Fellowship Day this month.

District 20 is now a reality. There is a new, virtual district, for online meetings associated with Area 48 NENY. The initial planning meeting was held, and the district will now hold its meetings on the 4th Friday of each month - via Zoom, of course.

If your virtual group is interested in establishing itself as an official District 20 entity, please have your group representative attend the monthly District Meeting - details will be included in the CDCO Events Calendar.

The CDCO Monthly Reports:

Each month the Central Office publishes its operating reports. These include our financial report, meeting minutes, our literature report, and call reports relating to the volume, location, and type of calls. If you are interested, please check these out:

The CDCO is always in need of volunteers to help carry the message. You may know that we provide helpline services 24x7x365, but did you know that we are staffed entirely by A.A. volunteers? Please consider doing service in the coming year.

Our volunteers occasionally need to take time off and we could certainly use some backups to answer the phone in the evening, or pitch in at the CDCO during office hours.
