Hello Oregon Intergroup (and all ACAs everywhere!)

By Group Conscience: The Portland Retreat Committee has voted to move the October 2021 retreat to the weekend of May 19th, 2022.

  This was a difficult decision to make. So many of us are feeling the effects of extended social isolation.
The annual workshop is a weekend that many of us look forward to and cherish as safe space for fellowship and deep exploration of the workshop topics. However, the unpredictability of fall weather and the continuing pandemic make it increasingly unlikely to be able to hold a large gathering indoors, especially considering that attendees will be bunking, eating, and sharing bathrooms together.
The committee has discussed having a one-day outdoor gathering in the early fall. We are looking for ACA members to help brainstorm this gathering, from where it could be held, to what kind of activities we would offer, to what date would be best to host it. The date for an upcoming meeting is TBA.
The more members we have to plan, the greater group conscience we have. If you are willing to help plan, email us to make sure you’re on the ACA retreat meeting list to take part in this discussion and planning.
You can also email acaportlandretreat@gmail.com with questions.

ACA Oregon Retreat 2021 First Planning Meeting: Sunday, January 31st, 2PM, ZOOM

At last, the moment we’ve all been waiting for– it’s time to start planning an in-person retreat!
This year, the retreat is scheduled to be at Mt. Hood Kiwanis Camp, on October 14th-17th, a full month earlier than previous years. 
Considering the constantly changing nature of the pandemic, it is possible that we might need to postpone the retreat again.  However, we also want to plan for the possibility that it WILL be safe to gather and room together, and to have a retreat similar to previous years.   

This includes building our roster of workshop and activity leaders, fundraising considerations, and taking on different tasks to make sure the retreat happens. 

If you would like to join in, please email acaportlandretreat@gmail.com for the Zoom link.
