Proposal: Subscription to "SLAA Journal" rather than getting it free. We have been getting the "Journal" free each month via email, and It's passed on to the members of our group, but the SLAA "Journal" is struggling right now and this proposal is that our group pay for it's subscription for one year in order to support the Journal. The cost is $21 for one year.

Proposal: To include attending Intergroup meetings wherever, and whenever possible, and bringing reports of such meetings back to our business meeting as part of the Liaisons job duties.
