If you have been elected as a new Intergroup Representative for your group, please send us your email information so you can be added to the EBlasts sent out to IG Reps. (send your information to firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to the IG Rep list).
Our first event of 2016 will be our 10th Chili Cook-off and Cornbread Contest. There will be some new events to celebrate our 10th Cook-off! More will be revealed as soon as we have the date. Also, the trophies will be given to the winning cooks and the winning ribbons will be given to the groups!
Please note that the office will be open for a half day from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. this Thursday, December 31st and closed Friday, January 1, 2016.

The members of the Dallas Intergroup Association voted at the November 12th meeting to add the following members to the DIA Board for 2016-17:
- Jimmy D, from the Chicago Group
- Doug L, from the Cornerstone Group
- Florinda F., from the Rowlett Group
- PJ H, from the Allen Group
Our first runner-up was Bob C., from the Georgetown Group We so often need our runner ups, that they have become very important to our Board. One year we went through all of them, so our next runner-ups Connie M from Casa and Allen W from Prosper keep close as well!!)
Special thanks to all the Intergroup Reps who were present and brought desserts for our annual Sugar-Fest.
If you have an email through AT&T ( sbcglobal, swbell accounts), we cannot get through to you via email at this time. Our IT person is working on it, but until this issue can be eliminated, you will have to call the office rather than expecting an email from these accounts) Our apologies, but hopefully it can be resolved shortly.
